Previously shown at this year’s E3. Nyko Technologies announced the release of its Charge Block Pro and Charge Block for Nintendo Switch for today. The accessories offer solutions to charging the console’s controllers, and will retail at an MSRP of $19.99.
“Our line of Charge Blocks for Xbox One, PS4, and PSVR has been very popular, so expanding support to the Nintendo Switch was a very logical step for us,” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “With our two new Charge Blocks for Nintendo Switch, users with multiple consoles can easily keep their controllers charged without adding another mess of wires or additional chargers to their crowded entertainment center.”
Charge Block Pro utilizes Nyko’s patented dongle system that attaches to the USB Type-C™ port on the controller for easy drop and charge functionality, without changing the ergonomics and grip of the Pro Controller. It also features a pass-through window for the charge indicator on the Pro Controller to clearly notify users of the charging status. Charge Block for Nintendo Switch features a rail system that allows users to easily slide and charge up to four Joy-Con controllers at a time, as well as an LED light indicator that signals when charging is complete. Both Charge Block Pro and Charge Block for Nintendo Switch plug into a wall outlet or USB port for recharging, and their low-profile design allows them to easily fit into most entertainment centers for convenient storage.
The Nyko Charge Block and Charge Block Plus are available now on Nyko’s website as well as Gamestop, with a future release on Amazon. Check out the gallery for some screens of the accessories in action, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
