    From what I've noticed so far a few hours. Online says 3-5, and that seems to fit with my limited experience. The range is pretty good. I'd originally had it under my TV (which is on a piece of furniture that has a few shelves and a glass door), but I couldn't move much past my room without losing gamepad signal. After taking the Wii U out of there and putting it up a bit higher (and not inside anything) the gamepad can get a clear signal anywhere inside the house, so there are a bunch of games I can play anywhere in the house just on the gamepad, which is nice.

    And I have to go back in a couple of weeks and shell out another $200 bucks. They're making a mouthguard for me; apparently, I've been grinding my teeth---or tooth, to be specific. Just one molar, on one side, is getting ground down. So I need to nip that in bud before it does any real damage. So I got a cleaning, a scan for the mouthguard, x-rays, and two fillings replaced (been putting that off for some time, but now it's done).

    Major difference between the US and UK. I had major surgery on my teeth when I was a kid and it didn't cost my parents a thing. All parts of the NHS service.
    If it was the US, it would have been in the thousands I bet.

    Braces here in Australia are very pricey, this was back in 1984 and back then it cost my parents around $3000 for one set. I don't know if dentists still do them now or something else has come along but it's not cheap.

    Antibiotics and cold drinks for a rather painful strep throat.

    Thanks, guys. My second dose of antibiotics is in my system, as are some good meds.
