The name Otterbox is synonymous with protective phone cases meant to be durable and last. Most notably for their rugged and heavy-duty protection, as well as screen protectors. But recently they’ve been reaching out more into the gaming space with accessories for gamers. Most notably they’ve made several for Xbox with a controller shell to protect it from drops, a mobile gaming clip, and a carrying case. But today Otterbox debuts hot-swap rechargeable battery pack for Xbox controllers.
Introducing the “Power Swap Controller Battery” a rechargeable battery pack different than anything on the market. Stated as “Providing uninterrupted power is the natural evolution of our gaming portfolio that allows seamless, ongoing gameplay for console and cloud gamers alike.” it features a specially made Battery cage that holds the batteries. Providing gamers with a visible light indicator it is able to hold a low power charge on the battery cage; while the player is able to hot-swap batteries without the controller ever turning off.
It is no doubt a unique design that is trying to help prevent those moments of critical need to ensure your controller doesn’t cut off at the worst time. This was developed in part of the Designed for Xbox program, so you can trust it as officially approved.
The OtterBox Power Swap Batteries will be available for purchase on Otterbox.com for $59.95 starting June 15th. Included are two battery units, a charging dock, and mounting cages for Xbox controllers.
