Started playing some games and low and behold about 5-10 minutes in the gamepad red battery light came on.. As per a previous review, I had installed it by twisting the wires to the left. I removed it and twisted the wires in the opposite direction, immediately got 4 bars back. And played for about 5 hours and still had 2 bars of battery. So it seems to be working for now. It appears to be an issue with the spades within the connector aren't making a decent connection. If it gives me any more problems I'll try a dab of OxGard on the contacts and see if that helps. Otherwise I'll give Nyko a call. The battery itself seems solid, it's just a connection issue. I also took a close look at the connectors and with a sewing needle, I gently and very carefully nudged each individual connector together so that it may have a slightly tighter fit with the posts inside the gamepad.
You don't know how awesome it is to have the gamepad last more than a couple hours. Hopefully Nyko resolves these minor issues. I feel it just needs a better contact material within the connector.
I notice the price on these is bouncing around alot. Don't pay more than $25..
If you are considering this battery, do yourself a favor and do not buy this one right now; wait for Nyko to fix the problem or for Nintendo to release their larger capacity battery later. If you want/need more battery life look into the Uboost add-on for the gamepad; it isn't meant to replace the stock battery but will give you twice the playtime.
Hopefully Nyko will fix this soon.
Problem is the Nintendo one is only going to be 2500mAh and this Nyko one is 4000mAh. So I really would rather the Nyko one to work! Plus I was angry that Nintendo didn't just include the bigger battery from the beginning. How hard is it to get a battery that fits the socket it was designed for? They charged us a premium price for the Wii U and yet they can't spend a few extra cents to include the proper battery in our gamepads? They rather charge us an extra $25 on top of making us wait an entire year just to get it.
MY ISSUES WITH THE NYKO BATTERY
The NYKO battery charged for me and seems to last longer as advertised. So I don't have that issue like most people. Also people claiming the Nyko battery is the only one that needs to twist the wires really need to take a few seconds to look at the official battery.
The Nintendo battery twists the wires just the same, and if you even look at the diagram under the battery it tells you to twist the wires. So people need to observe a little before writing a review and blaming Nyko for things that aren't their fault.
The actual problem for me is while I'm playing the screen will just randomly shut off. I have to press the power button and it comes back on, and even returns to the screen I was last on.
I tried wiggling the power connector and it seems to stay on at the moment. Not sure if it will continue to work but I guess we'll see.
Because I knew others had problems installing it, I took extra care when installing it after viewing several videos on You Tube.
I used the triple twist method of installing it. I then fully charged it before using the Wii U. I turned on the Pad after it was fully charged and saw 3 out of 4 power bars lit up. I opened the back back up and with the pad still on, I jiggled the wires by poking them with the screwdriver that came with the battery. Wham, the battery bar showed all 4 bars lit up. I put the cover back on and then proceeded to get more than 10 hours of life out of the battery. It was not even fully discharged when I changed it again so who knows how long the thing will last, but as it stands, it is a hell of a lot better than the 2-3 hours I was getting from the original Nintendo Battery.
This is a great product and well worth it, just do a little research before you run and go to install it and wind up doing it wrong then state its defective.
I did take away 1 star because if I had not researched the proper way to install it, I may have made a mistake when doing it.
