Wii U GamePad

Wii U GamePad’s battery lasts 3-to-5 hours

As detailed by Nintendo, the Wii U GamePad controller will have a battery life of three to five hours. A full charge of the unit takes two and a half hours, but you can still play games while that’s taking place.

Depending on how bright you have the screen will determine the battery’s life.

The official Nintendo details on the GamePad:

The Wii U GamePad controller removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. It incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio LCD touch screen, as well as traditional button controls and two analog sticks.

Inputs include a +Control Pad, L/R sticks, L/R stick buttons, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons, ZL/ZR buttons, Power button, HOME button, -/SELECT button, +/START button, and TV CONTROL button.

The GamePad also includes motion control (powered by an accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensor), a front-facing camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, rumble features, a sensor bar, an included stylus and support for Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality.

It is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and weighs approximately 1.1 pounds (500 g).
