If I have the screen at full brightness about 3-4 hours. If I have it at the lowest brightness setting about 4-5 hours. At about the 3rd/4th hour the battery light comes on and I am too nervous about the gamepad dying mid-race so I plug it in.

 

Got it. I know all about getting nervous half-way and plugging it in :D

 

As for the battery life, that's not that great, but doable. Not much worse than the PS4 controller, i get like 5-6 hours. If your setup allows for easy connection in terms of distance from the charger/USB port, then it's OK. Maybe you should get the big one? Battery, i mean :rolleyes:

Sure, no more double entries. I mean entendres. Meanwhile answer the question - did you get the bigger battery for your vibrating input device? The gamepad, I mean :rolleyes: (that was the last one)

Hahaha i always wondered why they provided a cradle/stand and a cradle/charger. Not that it hurts, just seems redundant and wasteful.

I;ve been playing a lot of MK8 and the short battery life is starting to become much more apparent.

I just bought a wii u as well, however for MK8 I don't use the screen controls because its not sensitive enough for the turns. I use the wii classic controller and it lasts a while on battery.

Screen controls? You only have the horn there.

I thought the screen simply mirrored what was on the T.V.

 

If I am playing on the T.V. I drop the brightness of the gamepad to its lowest setting to conserve battery. It helps.

Just wondering, why would anyone need an additional sensor bar?

apparently the sensorbar on the Wii Gamepad is kind of limited.

I didn't know that pack existed, but I too recently got a Wii U, and just got one of these since I didn't have a Wiimote plus yet. :s 

 

I'm slowly picking up Wii games as well I didn't get to play yet.  For example, I still never tried Call of Duty games yet but I'm eyeing the Black Ops 2 for Wii U since it's going for $24 now.
