Thanks

Really disappointed with the official pro controller. We've had it about 18 months, (and it's been connected to the Wii on charge all the time), unplugged it last week for the first time in 9 months to use it and it had no charge and was dead. He's only used it 5 or 6 times in total..

That'll be your problem. You're not meant to leave them on charge constantly.

The official Wii U Pro Controller battery lasts for ages. I've been using the Gioteck GC-2 controller and I've yet to charge it. Battery of some controllers are exceptionally long and well worth it.

Any reports on how good these are? some of the aftermarket controllers i have bought over the years have been really terrible.

will this work with a laptop?

OOS

The Official Pro Controller and battery life.

I am very impressed with the battery on these things Charged it once and used for a month and that was pretty common usage like every second day or more for a few hours at a time and more at the weekends.

Any battery you leave on charge for a month or and never actually use as a battery will kill any battery month by month.

I am not sure about the after market but the Nintendo pro controller is Sweet. Probably OK for the occasional friend use but would not use it as a main controller.

It's worthwhile mentioning that all official Wii U accessories inc. the Pro Controller and Gamepad are always on in a very low powered state. So charge if you them up and then go to use them 6 months later for the first time to find that they are out of charge, it isn't an issue with the battery which is likely working as intended.
