Battery Case For Nintendo Switch Needs To Happen

Sick of not being able to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for your entire road trip without finding a quick plug-in? You’re officially in luck!Battery Case For Nintendo Switch Needs To Happen

There’s a fairly sweet looking battery for the Nintendo Switch that acts as a cover and case. It’s called the SwitchCharge and it’s still in Kickstarter, but the makers have high hopes and ship-out goal of August 2017.

With this fancy case, thus far priced at a minimum of $75 for the SwitchCharge itself, you can take your game anywhere for up to 12 hours. It also has a proper kickstand, much improved on the one the Switch currently has.

But how does it all work? Aren’t most batteries like this a brick the same size as the Switch itself? According to SwitchCharge’s kickstarter page, it’s a “high capacity 12,000Ah battery” of lithium and is custom-made for the Switch only.

No further technical details are provided. I personally find this slightly irritating, as though the manufactures think I’m not interested in knowing.

It’s made of a “durable plastic” and features two handy game cartridge slots. Unlike most battery packs, the SwitchCharge functions as a case, where the top half slides up to fit the Switch inside and snaps into place.

Keep in mind, this a kickstarter and is not absolutely guaranteed to ship out at the date stated, especially since they are only 22% of the way to their goal with but a month to go.

What do you think of the SwitchCharge? Is it worth the cost? Let us know in the comments below!
