HyperX ChargePlay Clutch battery pack announced for Switch

HyperX ChargePlay Clutch Nintendo Switch external battery

The Nintendo Switch is great for a lot of things, but extended portable gaming sessions aren’t exactly one of them (on the original model, at least). The battery on Nintendo’s hybrid home console can only last so long when it’s undocked, and the battery life is improved but not eternal if you’re rocking one of the new V2 versions of the Nintendo Switch. Plugging in a portable battery to charge as you play is one option, but that still comes with its own series of headaches. Thankfully, HyperX has come along with an all-in-one solution to any battery-starved Nintendo Switch owners, thanks to their new HyperX ChargePlay Clutch.

The HyperX ChargePlay Clutch is a feature-rich charging case for the Nintendo Switch that offers more than just extended battery life. Besides a 6000mAh battery, there’s also a convenient LED indicator on the case that displays your current charge level, as well as a stable kickstand to use for tabletop gaming. Securing latches on the top and bottom of the HyperX ChargePlay Clutch keep your console firmly docked into the battery pack, and detachable Joy-Con grips even give you a way to seamlessly transition from handheld mode to tabletop mode.

The HyperX ChargePlay Clutch is available now for $59.99.
