My gamepad just shut off while playing New Super Mario Bros U.

There was no low battery warning, no red light or anything. It just turned off completely and wouldn't come back on until I plugged in the adapter.

Is this normal?

It would be nice if there was an indication on the gamepad aside from it just shutting off, and you get an onscreen message saying the WiiU has lost connection with the gamepad.

The one time I let mine drain down that far, the red light came on long before it needed to shut down.

Are you sure that little red light wasn't first lit and then started blinking?

That should normally happen when the battery is almost out of power... You sure you didn't miss it?
