Nyko power pak+

Battery pack powers up for pre-orders.

The Nintendo 3DS battery life has been one of it's main problems, with many potential customers being concerned that it is rather low especially when the 3D effects are fully utilised. Recently however, Nyko has announced that they have developed an extended 3DS Battery called the Power Pak+ and a 3DS Charge Base to go with it.

The 3DS Battery screws on to the back of the Nintendo 3DS for quick and easily installation, extending the battery life for up to double capacity. The 3DS Charge Base includes the dock itself which uses the standard 3DS Charging Cable that comes with the Nintendo 3DS console as well as the Power Pak+, so it has everything that you need for quick and easy charging of your Nintendo 3DS. These are not yet available in the UK, but GamingZap is now taking pre-orders for them and will have some at the end of the month from other sources. This product is the perfect travelling companion for your Nintendo 3DS as well as a larger 3DS Case to accomodate for the battery pack. With no official release date for the UK, now is the chance to acquire some of these extended battery packs to keep you gaming on your Nintendo 3DS for longer!
