    Hi everyone,

    My charging port on my Wii U gamepad has broke. I have been searching high and low for a replacement but everyone only seems to carry the bottom port that goes into the charging dock/cradle.

    That port works fine, but of course you really can't play while its charging that way. I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction in locating the jack please.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for the reply, those are the bottom port for the gamepad.

    A local phone/game repair shop could probably fix it for you in a day or two.
