Charge Station U

The GamePad cradle portion of the dock is also equipped with adjustable viewing angles making it perfect for watching video content while you recharge your controllers. The Charge Station U will be available in February for a MSRP of $34.99, in both white and black.


Pro Commander

Take command of your favorite Wii U games with the Pro Commander, a Pro Controller alternative featuring traditional analog stick placement.
