Gamepad 2550mAh battery, available in North America?

Looking to upgrade, but I didn't want to have to resort to 3rd party accessories. The quality seems to be very hit or miss.

I guess I could do that. There wouldnt be any reason it couldn't work with an NTSC gamepad, right?

I'm from Europe and imported it from PlayAsia, it works fine - no problems at all.

What's the expected battery life? And how much battery life do you guys get right now? I'm interested...

Why wouldn't Nintendo sell it in North America anyway? That's just dumb.

Maybe they think the average North American is too dumb to unscrew a gamepad and switch the battery? Japan always seems to get a lot.more add ons and accessories that we do here in NA or even in Europe.
