Back at GDC Nyko Announced the latest of its Power Pak series, dedicated to the PS4, but didn’t give a release date. Those interested in extending the battery life of their DualShock 4 controller will be happy to know that it’s now available for pre-order, and will be released on May 26th.
In addition to the Power Pak, Nyko is also releasing an Intercooler for Sony’s new console, and that has just been made available for pre-order at Gamestop as well for $24.99 (it doesn’t seem to be available on Amazon yet).
The PowerPak is basically a pretty lightweight auxiliary 1000 mAh auxiliary battery (like the original one of the DualShock 4) that will fit snugly to the back of your DualShock 4 controller without any dismantling required. Due to its small size and shape it’s compatible with Nyko’s own charging station and according to the manufacturer it’ll double the battery life of the controller.
The Intercooler clips to the back of the PS4 and turns on and off with it thanks to Nyko’s patented “Power Pass-through” tech. It can be used in both vertical and horizontal positions and promises to help keeping your PS4 cool by pushing hot air away from it.
If you’re one of those that don’t like to be tethered to the USB cable during long play sessions or you’re worried about heat, these may just be the accessories that will save you some worries.
