At Gamestop at least. May be limited quantities and who knows if most stores will have it. Triples Gamepad battery life.

Someone in a GoNintendo article says he called Nyko and shipments are supposed to start rolling out tomorrow. In case anyone was anticipating another delay.

Any luck yet? It's not available on the GameStop site, within 100 miles of me, or on Amazon yet.

Is that a switch on the battery shown on the Gamestop page?

Yeah I'm still not seeing any stores within 100 miles.

I ordered on the 14th too because I was surprised that it said it would release on 5/15/13. I e-mailed gamestop customer service to which I was responded with:

Thank you for contacting GameStop.com.

We apologize for the inconvenience, Unfortunately we no longer have this item in stock.

We anticipate receiving additional inventory of this item from the manufacturer very soon.

We would recommend that you keep checking our website as we do update frequently.

Triples the Gamepad battery life. Although I think I'm gonna wait til after E3 to purchase in case Nintendo ends up offering a superior first party battery that either costs less or performs better. My hunch is that the delays are because Nintendo wants to put out their own battery eventually.

I need one of those! The original one is awful. It doesn't last very long. I hate charging every 2 days each time to recharge.

From the official Nyko Twitter, 22 hours ago:

"Should be hitting stores shelves as early as late next week."
