OtterBox Unveils Power Swap Controller Batteries
Earlier this year, industrial-strength smartphone case maker OtterBox expanded its solutions to include cases, mounts, and shells to incorporate game controllers for a stream of console-like mobile games.
Following on from their CES announcement and on the heels of E3 2021, OtterBox is back in the news with its new batteries of Power Swap controllers.
OtterBox Power Swap Controller Batteries work with its new line of mobile gaming hardware and allow gamers to quickly swap batteries in the middle of gaming sessions.
PSCs are specially designed to work with the OtterBox Xbox One / X Series / S Series Controllers for iPhone and allow gamers to flip a switch, eject a battery, and insert a new battery in under twenty seconds.
Speaking with a representative from OtterBox, we know there are plans to roll out its new game controllers, skins, cases and controller battery arrangements to more devices that include the Pixel line and select Samsung Galaxy devices, in the coming months.
As the PSC batteries are rechargeable, OtterBox also includes a charging station that can hold up to two batteries. Additionally, to simplify the trade-in process, OtterBox’s current mobile game controllers also acquire new features when combined with PSCs to help alert players to an impending trade-off.
When the batteries need to be replaced, an indicator light on the battery configuration will illuminate enough to alert players that they should begin the battery replacement process soon.
With Microsoft announcing a slew of new cloud streaming games coming to the platform as well as its games division publicly opening its xCloud in the coming weeks, hooking up this OtterBox mobile gaming platform could be just as critical, if not. easier, than getting a new generation console this year.
