    I know there's an official battery larger then the 1500 th at comes with the console, I also know there is a Nyko larger battery but has reports of issues and I know there is Chinese knock offs that I'm not trusting.. What I don't know and hope someone does is what are they gray and white wires on the battery, obviously black is ground and red is positive..

    Probably i2c clock and data if the battery has a builtin smart regulator, or detection and temperature outputs if the logic is in the tablet itself, or something completely made up given the brand of these products...

    I assume it would not be easy to connect a different lipo battey since the wii u gamepad need those?

    I have that nyko battery extender. it's basically the same effect as the stock wii u pad battery. the thing drains when not in use. ninty...what a disappointment

    Well you could probably rip the electronics from an original battery and replace the cells with your pre-balanced 18650s in parallel, at least this works fine on 3DS (which actually has a charging time limit so you may need to unplug the charger at some points once you get over 3-4x the stock capacity lol)
