So, what's the solution for the fairly short battery time on the tablet?

There's no excuse. Nintendo should've just gone for a higher capacity battery.


Cost cutting measures. I bought the upgrade and it lasts a good 7-9 hours now.

I recently bought the wii u and I whole heartily vouch for the japanese extended battery pack. I get about 8 hours. Plenty of time for those long sessions.

Just a warning I had terrible luck with nyko packs. It might not be battery but the connector, I had to twist it and wasn't connecting properly, seems not fit well and I wasn't getting close to what they advertised. So if there are multiple or new models make sure to read up on them. Where the official nintendo ones fit like a glove.

Well, it is because I got the replacement too, and as I said it works fine. To everyone else asking how to recognize it: it's easy. The connector on the first batch needed to be 'twisted' in order to fit into the port (the wires, I mean). The new one has the connector the right way, no twisting needed.


It's the internet, and I typically (and sometimes unfairly) dismiss it when seeing a one-off source claiming something. To make things worse, my Googling sucked and I had overlooked other reports confirming you. My apologies, I will no longer doubt posts by andrea987!

lol, no worries pal, no need to apologize.
I'm very happy uk will get the official extended battery soon, anyhow. That will probably be the best solution.
