Nyko doubles 3DS Battery
What you're seeing here is actually two products Nyko has lined up to support 3DS gamers when the system hits North America on March 27. The first is the Power Pak+, a high capacity battery that hooks onto the back of the 3DS, adding extra power at the cost of added bulk. They say the device will double the battery life of the 3DS, effectively transforming three to eight hours into up to 16 hours. Then there's the Charge Base. Arriving a week after launch and packed along with one of the Power Pak+ units, the charge base will allow players to drop their 3DS unit inside for a little juicing up while not in play. Considering the base and Power Pak+ combo is only $29.99, it might be worth waiting a week to get both.
