The 1000mAh Lithium Ion battery connects through the controller’s USB port to charge it while it is in use, so you can game and charge at the same time! Chris Arbogast, Director of Marketing at Nyko Technologies, shared some words regarding the Pak’s design:

“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. It’s lightweight and does not impede gameplay or ergonomics, enabling users to extend their gaming sessions.”

Here are all the cool things you, THE CONSUMER, get when you obtain a Power Pak:

– Doubles the battery capacity of the standard DualShock 4 controller.
– Pass-through Micro USB port allows users to easily recharge both the controller and Power Pak through a standard Micro USB cable.
– Fully compatible with Nyko’s Charge Base for PS4.
– Dedicated power switch enables users to decide when they need extra juice.

The decision on whether I need extra juice is mine and mine alone, Nyko. You can purchase a Power Pack right now for $19.99 at GameStop, Amazon, and other video game accessory stores. Any of our PS4-owning readers looking for extra life to bequeath unto their controller?
