Is there something wrong with my Wii U tablet controller?

Even with the brightness set to "3" and power-save mode set to "on" it still seems to completely drain of power in a matter of only a couple of hours!

No, nothing is wrong with it. The battery life on the Gamepad just sucks. Bad.

Only saving grace is that it's powered through a outlet.

Interesting. Cause I heard that if you set the brightness to 3 and turn power-save mode on you can get at least four hours out of it before it completely drains. But I only got like two-and-something hours. :(

I set mine to 2 and turn power save mode on and rumble off and never worry about mine.

Tbh it lasts about the same as my xbox and ps3 comtrollers and they arent running a touch screen and streaming at the same time.

Yeah...don't lie. I have both an Xbox and PS3 and my controllers definitely run longer than my gamepad. Anyways to stay on topic...Do you really need the brightness at 3? I mean i play on setting one only because i'm in a well lit room.
