Nyko Power Pak and Dock Bands available now for Switch.

More On: Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is a versatile little piece of tech but isn't perfect; the battery life frankly sucks, and according to sporadic reports the official Switch dock can actually scratch the console's screen. Nyko Technologies is here with some products to plug Nintendo's engineering blind spots, as they often have in the past.

First up is the Power Pak, which retails for $39.99. It's a surprisingly slim 5000 mAh power bank that slots right onto the back of your Switch. You can power it up when  the Switch's meager internal battery runs low, giving you hours of additional playtime depending on the game you're playing, brightness and other factors. Nyko doesn't give a specific ballpark of how much extra playtime you can get from the Power Pak, but considering the Switch's internal battery is 4310 mAh, I wouldn't be surprised if the Power Pak at least double's the console's portable life.

But what if you're worried about the dock scratching the screen? Well Nyko has an inexpensive, low-tech but effective solution with the Dock Bands. these are basically sturdy rubber bumpers that slot between the Joy-Cons and the console, to provide some cushion for the Switch to fit more snugly into the dock, without the screen rubbing against the internal plastic rails. The Dock Bands will run you $4.99.

Both of these products are available now. Check out the videos for a closer look.

“A portable power solution is a critical addition to any Nintendo Switch setup in order to enjoy the on-the-go gaming experience the console is designed for,” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “By providing up to double the battery life of the console, Power Pak helps keeps gamers powered while on the move for uninterrupted gameplay.”
With a 5,000 mAh battery and upgraded kickstand, Power Pak is the perfect on-the-go solution for gamers that want to extend their play time while away from a power source. Power Pak clips directly onto the back of the console, and is turned on via a simple button when extra power is needed. The battery pack is easily charged with an included Type-C cable, and features light on the back that indicate charge status. Power Pak also features a reinforced, collapsible kickstand that supports both the Switch and the added weight of the battery to easily enable tabletop mode. 
Dock Bands for Nintendo Switch attach to both sides of the console and add a protective barrier to help prevent scratches or damage while docking the console. They feature a low-profile design that allows them to remain on the console when in use, and players can also attach Joy-Cons™ to the console without removing the Dock Bands. The textured feel of the Dock Bands provides additional grip and prevents the console from slipping out of players’ hands.
