Nyko release the Modular Power Station for Xbox One

Xbox One

With a new console comes a whole host of new third party hardware to tempt us into cheaper controllers, charging stations or cooling systems. Nyko have jumped on the peripheral wagon and have released a rather funky looking docking system that bolts directly onto the left side of your Xbox One.

Taking design cues from the console itself, the ‘Modular Power Station’ is home to two battery packs that charge while the console is switched on. Two LED charge icons at the front of the docking station indicate the status of each battery while the compartment is easily accessed by ‘one touch’.

The Power Station is designed with marathon-session gamers in mind,” said Chris Arbogast, director of marketing at Nyko Technologies. “It allows players to hot-swap their controllers’ batteries without breaking momentum, so running out of power will never again force an undesired gaming break.

With less wires to contend with and a back up battery pack, is this something gamers would be interested in? Check out the image gallery and let us know what you think.
