Gametech has launched a new Wii U accessory in Japan that allows users to charge the GamePad through the main console. 2 USB ports are required for it to function. You can find a few photos of the peripheral in the gallery above.

Thanks to Almunster for the tip.

That's pretty clever actually! If it makes it outside of Japan I might get one.

They should have done it that way in the first place. It's how PS3 controllers are charged. Plugged directly into the USB ports.
