Now, if you need some extra juice while you’re out, Anker has you covered with two new USB-C battery backs that have been specifically designed to quickly recharge Nintendo’s portable console.
Now, the Switch uses a standard USB-C port for charging, so pretty much any USB-C PD battery pack with a high enough power output will work in a pinch.
But Anker’s new packs claim to be different: both power banks have been calibrated specifically for fast-charging the Nintendo Switch.
Anker claims that players can fast-charge their consoles in less than three hours, even while still playing games.
There are two battery packs to choose from: the larger Anker PowerCore 21000 PD, which is an updated version of the Anker PowerCore 20000 PD, costs $89.99. Anker claims it can extend the Switch’s battery life by up to 15 extra hours (or roughly five full charges).
There’s also the Anker PowerCore 13400 PD, which costs $69.99. Anker claims is the “smallest Power Delivery power bank” that can fast-charge the Nintendo Switch.
The two battery packs will be available for preorder later in June from GameStop and Anker’s website. »
