    Wii U Pro Controller Lasts 80 Hours On One Charge, Doesn’t Work With Any Wii Games

    According to GameStop, the Wii U Pro Controller can last up to 80 hours on a single charge, which is certainly a longer duration than the Wii U’s main controller, the Wii U GamePad, after one charge. For the sake of comparison, an Xbox 360 controller lasts about 25-30 hours with new batteries.
    Although Wii U is backward compatible with most Wii games, GameStop claims that the Wii U Pro Controller cannot be used with any Wii game; you cannot use any of Wii U’s controllers to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl, for example.

    The Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analog sticks and ergonomic button layout that you’ve come to expect, as well as a rechargeable battery that can last up to 80 hours on a single charge.​

    Hyrule most of the time
    Quick update to this. It WILL charge off a PC as it comes with a USB charger, but Windows does not recognize it (i.e. you will still need a Blue Tooth adapter like the Wii Remotes)
