I screwed up this Wii U GamePad's battery pack, it's starting to bulge. I left the thing plugged in for months, or maybe even a year, I dunno. I got extremely annoyed by the short duration that it lasts for on a full charge, always having the plug the damn thing in, being restricted by a wire connected to a power socket on the wall. Now it only lasts for 2 minutes max!
The good news is, I can still use the GamePad without the battery pack. One problem though, the only way to turn on the GamePad requires the battery pack to be connected first, then I can take it off afterwards, y'know, in case of an explosion...
Maybe the same thing can happen to Nintendo Switch's battery pack, I don't know. But to everyone who has one, take caution, don't leave it plugged in, charging for long periods of time. I know when I get a Switch, I'll be taking it in the car to avoid this happening again.
Damn you, Xenoblade Chronicles X! My gameplay time is now 385+ hours! So damn long, dood! And I still have more games to play! The homie Yosh, though.

$30.50 for a standard battery pack replacement, $64.40 for the high capacity one...
Nintendo, I love y'all, but this is just too expensive, dood. I'd rather just buy another game.
I think I'm about 392 hours in now. I've been grinding for affinity points for characters via support missions so I can complete their heart to heart conversations which completes segments on the FrontierNav so I can survey as much of Mira as I can.

oh, I misunderstood what I was seeing in the picture. That's the actual battery you're showing us. I thought you were saying the whole gamepad is bust, but just the battery. But seriously - 385 hours tho! That's over 16 days!! Nice job.

@captain The battery pack itself? No, it seem too dangerous, dood.
