No an official one but just as good, mine had last me about 2 years and still Last longer than the original one third party battery
And a fraction on the price
Got this from banggood and it literally doesn't keep it's charge more than a day when left idle and goes to two notches on the battery meter after turning on the console even if you've left it on charge all night. Maybe my one is a dud. Don't know.
This post is not for a high capacity wii u gamepad so why does the title say that?
I've had my official Wii U High Capacity battery in for a good year. I got it from an Amazon France deal posted on here. It's been great. It makes the Gamepad noticeably heavier to begin with, which does take some getting used to.

Banggood? It'll likely be a fake.
Bought one the same way as curly did and definitely a big difference in usage time with this battery...
I just keep my game pad plugged in to the console, anyone experienced any issues with this?

Wouldn't trust a knockoff on a £70 product.

That's the thing with knockoffs. They don't last for long.

I bought an official High Capacity Battery months ago from Amazon France for £16 or £18 and it was well worth it! It lasts up to 8hrs so that's more than enough for its use. WUPC is up to 80hrs so far better and it's light-weight.

As long as it's an official branded Nintendo battery there's no issues, at least that's my experience with it.

And what is the difference in usage time?
I've never actually managed to wear the High Capacity Battery out. The standard battery was about 3 to 4 hours and I wore it out a couple of times. I've just cut and pasted this off a forum discussion. It seems pretty realistic to me:

1500mAh's life = 3 hours 30 minutes (brightness 4 out of 5, power saving off, rumble off, burn-in reduce disabled)
2550mAh's life = 6 hours 5 minutes (brightness 4 out of 5, power saving off, rumble off, burn-in reduce disabled)
2550mAh's life = 7 hours 30 minutes (brightness 3 out of 5, power saving on, rumble off, burn-in reduce disabled)
How much heavier does this make the controller feel? Is it still comfortable to hold?
