I've seen these being sold on eBay for cheap. I like the idea of being able to do away with the charger AC brick, but does it take longer to recharge the Gamepad through a USB connection? (To one if the consoles back USB ports).
I sleep in a racing car, do you?

I've found that the usb cables require the same charge duration (possibly less) than the ac adapter.

I'm using a usb charge cable,a 10 foot usb 2.0 extension cable and I alternate between using the Wii U's usb and using a usb ac adapter.

I've been using this method since 11-23 and I've yet to encounter any drawbacks.
