I don't understand the complaints about the battery life

You can't be that far away from the system anyway, how would you even possibly be far enough from an outlet to be unable to charge?

If anything, complain about the lack of distance you can take the gamepad away from the system. It's not meant to be portable by any means, you still have to be in the same room as the system....

I still haven't had the battery even close to run out.

It's supposed to be wireless. Playing with it plugged into a charger kinda defeats the point.

I have been able to take the pad several rooms away and still have it work.

Touché. The gamepad is a fake wireless controller. Nintendo is going backwards.

How else are you going to recharge the controller while playing WiiU games?

By using a second gamepad, like how you do on the PS3 and the 360. WAIT...!

So you buy extra controllers so you don't have to play with a controller plugged into the console not six feet away from you?

Kids these days really are spoiled.

Oh yeah. Having more than 1 controller sure makes you spoiled. Hahahahahahaha. NDF and their hilarious attempts at damage control.

On a side note I was pleasantly surprised that if the game pad battery does go completely dead, I could still play BLOPs on my pro controller and nsmbu on my wiimotes. I was really expecting it to say some kind if error and not let me play.
