    It doesn't hold a charge very long.

    Let me clarify, the Wii U's pad never held a charge very long but now it shows the red light after about 24 hours.

    The average battery life of a Wii U gamepad is about 3-5 hours.

    There are replacement kits on the Nintendo store and on Amazon, they are pricey but are easily replaced.

    Yeah that's 3-5 hours of gameplay time, I'm talking 24 hours without using it and I have to recharge. See the difference? We don't have to charge them EVERY 3-5 hours do we?

    Perhap you should be clearer next time. How much gameplay time do you get out of it?

    No perhaps you should use a bit more common sense my first post said I'm having to charge it after 24 hours if you know the battery life is 3-5 hours why would you think I meant 24 hours of gameplay time? That makes no sense at all.

    Thanks for addressing the issue. So I can't just buy a certain kind of battery and take a screwdriver and replace it?

    Forgive me for a.) Trying to get you to be more specific, and b.) Trying to see if your battery replacement is even necessary. I was going to offer my experiences taking apart Wii U gamepads, but you obviously don't want them.

    Edit: And I didn't think you had a magical 24-hour Gamepad.
