I've gotten roughly 3.5 to 5 hours, but it all varies based on what I'm doing, whether it's playing games or watching videos.

How could someone disagree with your personal experience with the Gampad...LOL Anyway I guess a New battery is coming out, or something that will double the battery life...The trolls who do not even have or played a Wii U can disagree all they want LOL!

Niko (or Neko) battery addon is coming and you dont need to modify a gamepad, just plug-in play, its attaching on a back and gives you a power boost for more playing hours..price is decent too 10 or 20 dollars I think

It also depends on the lightning intensity. If you have it on full, the battery will drain like crazy.

I'm not horribly impressed with the battery life however for my purposes I can get enough life out of it. If I outlast the battery, I'm not upset I have to play with a plug in the wall. The benefits of the controller is worth the hassle imo.

I didnt know it plugged into the wall, I thought it would be plugged into the console like other controllers. I was thinking if I had to plug into the console the cable wouldnt be long enough as i sit far back from my tv and consoles but i can plug into a wall no problem.
Im sure alot of us have shuffled some furniture round in the past to make our gaming areas a bit more user friendly.
