Power Shell Case

Power Shell Case is a dual-purpose case for Nintendo Switch - it’s the perfect solution for storing the console and up to 12 games (or 11 games and two Micro-SD cards) when not in use, and includes a 6000 mAh battery pack for easy recharging of the console with the included integrated Type-C cable.

The stand features a cutout pass-through for the built-in charging cable, allowing the console to continue charging while in use.

The collapsible grips easily swivel into place or out of the way for easy storage.

"We are releasing a series of charging solutions designed to give gamers the convenience of multiple options to power their Wii U controllers so they are fully charged and ready to go at all times."
Nyko's Wii U lineup includes:

UBoost - Add 2x the battery life to the Wii U GamePad with this simple clip-on extended battery. The UBoost attaches to the back of the GamePad controller, with no tools or modification to the GamePad required, and works in conjunction with the internal battery to prolong playtime upwards of 10 hours. A built-in stand also allows for easy viewing of streaming content on the device with no dock required.

LED Indicator lights notify users when the charge cycle is complete while the collapsible design of the dock makes it easy for travel or storage when not in use.
