One of the main complaints about the new DualShock 4 controller for the PS4 is that the battery in it does not last very long. I don’t mind recharging it every other night, but for some, it’s a hassle. For those who want longer battery life without having to plug in, Nyko has a solution for you and it’s their new Power Pak for the DS4 controller. The Power Pak is an snap-on battery pack that doubles the standard battery capacity with a 1000mAh Lithium Ion battery.
The Power Pak for PS4 retails for $19.99 at GameStop, Amazon, and other video game accessory stores. For more information about the Power Pak, check out the official press release below.
