Hello,

Am just wondering if the Wii U power cable is the same as the Wii? Am getting a Wii U for Christmas. It will be sitting next to my Wii. How ever on Christmas day it is going to be hard for me to move my TV cabinet out so I can plug the Wii U power cable in then feed it through the cabinet to plug into the Wii U.

So am wondering could I simply just take the Wii power cable out of the Wii and plug it into the Wii U? Then a few days later I will get the Wii U power cable and plug it in when I get the time.

No. It's a bigger brick. The sensor bar is compatible though.

Also the plugs are mirror images of each other so you can't interchange them.

Dude, get an extra power brick now and hook it up so it's ready for Christmas. Or run an extension cord through there now so it's ready for Christmas.

The Wii U can play Wii games, so why not just transfer your Wii data over to the Wii U? You won't have to have to bother with anymore then 1 power cord this way. Besides playing Gamecube games or Gamecube controllers (unless you have the newer Wii's that doesn't support them), why else do you even need the Wii?

^^ He wasn't attempting to have the consoles side-by-side. He needs to move a large cabinet to access the electrical outlet, so he was wondering if he could just simply re-use the Wii's power brick.
