Wii U Pro controller has 80 hours worth of battery life

Almost three times as much as the Xbox 360's Play and Charge kit.

Posted By | On 16th, Oct. 2012

Descriptions on Amazon and GameStop (via Nintendo Life) say that the Wii U Pro controller has an incredible battery life that lasts up to 80 freaking hours. That’s almost three times as much as the Xbox 360 Play & Charge kit, which lasts about 25-30 hours, and way more than the Wii U’s tab controller, which only lasts 5 hours.

“Your games, your way,” the official blurb states. “However you think of your gaming style – hardcore, old school, or purely nostalgic – the Wii U Pro Controller puts you in the game. Designed for accessibility and extended gameplay comfort, the Wii U Pro Controller features the dual analogue sticks and ergonomic button layout that you’ve come to expect, as well as a rechargeable battery that can last up to 80 hours on a single charge.

“The Wii U Pro Controller can be used for playing a variety of games – from packaged games at retail to downloadable games from the Nintendo eShop. Look on the back of Wii U game packaging to see which games use the Wii U Pro Controller. Not compatible with the Wii system or games.”

The Pro controller comes out when the Wii U releases at the end of next month. Stay tuned for more updates.
