Play longer with Nyko's UBoost for the Wii U GamePad . The UBoost works in conjunction with the existing GamePad battery providing 2x the battery power for up to 10 hours of playtime. The extra playtime of the built-in battery is complemented by a built-in stand, perfect for watching streaming content such as movies or TV shows on the GamePad's screen. The UBoost easily clips on to the back of the GamePad with no need to remove the internal battery or back cover, making installation as easy as possible. Once you're done playing, the UBoost easily recharges through the standard GamePad AC adaptor or fits into the official GamePad charging dock.

No real down side. It gives you more play time.
When you add this lightweight battery pack to the gamepad and activate it when the gamepad starts to die, it charges it completely. The result is doubling your playtime without having to plug in the gamepad.
There is a minor heat dissipation from the battery pack when u activate it, but it isn't what I would call "hot.
The battery pack charges seemlessly on the cradle. It actually contacts the charging dock instead of the gamepad, but allows the charge to pass through so both battery pack, and gamepad charge simultaneously.
I have used this maybe a few times a week for the last several months to extend playing tim, and can't imagine giving it up. The stock gamepad battery is pretty pathetic, and this fixes that issue. I suppose if your really hardcore you could even buy 2 and swap the dead pack out for a fresh one while you keep playing ,thus giving the gamepad an infinite battery life.
Some people have said it's heavy, but I haven't found that to be much of an issue...I use the Uboost's built in stand to help stand it on my leg when I'm sitting down, with the Gamepad in my lap- works nicely.
Obviously pretty much everyone would have preferred that Nintendo included a decent battery in the Gamepad in the first place, but this is the next best thing (unless you want to pay nearly twice the price for Nintendo's upgraded battery), I have no complaints with the Uboost so far, and I'm someone who very rarely buys extra accessories.
