Nyko UBoost extends the Wii U GamePad's battery life

Nyko's product line-up for the Wii U sounds surprisingly useful (well, some of it). The major accessory of the group, the UBoost ($19.99), clips on to the system's GamePad and can "prolong playtime upwards of 10 hours." It has a built-in st...   read
