Game accessory manufacturer Nyko Technologies has announced the Power Pak for PlayStation 4, which is an attachable rechargeable battery pack that doubles the battery capacity of the DualShock 4, is now available in retail stores.
The Power Pak is a 1000mAh Lithium Ion battery that connects through the DualShock 4’s Micro USB port to recharge to controller while it is being used. The Power Pak accessory will also be fully compatible with Nyko’s PlayStation 4 Charge Base and comes with a dedicated power switch, allowing players to choose if they need the extra battery life.
“Our goal was to create a device that not only increases the DualShock 4’s battery life, but also matches the controller in comfort and appearance,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies.“It’s lightweight and does not impede gameplay or ergonomics, enabling users to extend their gaming sessions.”
The Power Pak will retail at $19.99 at Gamestop, Amazon and other video game related outlets.
