Wow! Last time this was on a lightning deal it was £4.08

Sorry, meant to say, heat added. Great price in today's pricing

Even though I got this when it was a fiver on lightning deal, this is genuinely worth it at this price, really makes the Wii U more playable.

Where can you see the lightning deals for video games I cant seem to find them anymore.

Thanks for this!

Massive improvement on the original, woefully bad battery. The original battery is a small one that sits in a big slot on the back of the gamepad, which just happens to fit this bigger one perfectly! They obviously planned it all along, the swines!

I bought one at the previous lightening deal buzz! Not quite as good a reduction this time around!

One for the ebay warehouse. Thanks.

im on the list....

Got one thanks.

Wow just noticed I payed £25 for it back in 2014

Damnit Buzz since I replaced my flux capacitor in the Starship-BuzzDelorean, with a Duraband one, it needs more accurate times, I need date & time right down to the second. Ever since I added the spoiler, it doesnt require millisecond accuracy. Now you throw a spanner in my works for a must have accessory for 2017, when people realise it was a Wii U they wanted all along. After purchasing the Switch and realising, that they don't use it any where else but at home and could have had more value from a Wii U

They do show on desktop. Not very obvious though. On the homepage, under the search bar, is a few links. Hit "Todays deals". That takes you to the deals page, including lightning deals. You can then use the filters on the left, under "Deal Type" select "lightning deals".

So, that's Amazon's version of a user friendly deals section!

Still doesn't solve the problem of the Wii U Gamepad draining it's battery when turned off after a few days.

Be aware that the larger battery makes the Game Pad noticeably heavier.

Really?

​all batteries deplete after time, but you're 100% correct. the gamepad is constantly in a waiting state, ready to receive input from the base unit. it needs a manual power switch, not just a soft off
