If you’ve ever tried to take your Nintendo Switch with you on a road trip or an extended trip to the park, you likely know the struggle of trying to keep the thing charged for more than a hand full of hours. You could always bring along a USB cable, but you’ll still need somewhere to plug it in to avoid interrupting your gameplay. A portable power bank is a respectable option, but why by one separate when you could have one that’s built right into your carrying case? The team at Bionik certainly felt this way as they’ve just unveiled and launched a new Nintendo Switch case which also acts as a 10,000 mAH power bank. This case is described as water-resistant with a plush interior, multiple compartments, and a removable shoulder strap. Currently available through Bionik’s website, Amazon, and select retailers, the Bionik Power Commuter retails at an MSRP of $69.99 USD.
While your checking out that new Bionik product, you should also have a look at the BT Audio Sync adapter which will bring Bluetooth headphone compatibility to the Nintendo Switch. With an MSRP of $39.99 USD, the BT Audio Sync will plug directly into the bottom of any Nintendo Switch or its dock (using a USB cable). Once attached, users will be able to stream audio from the Switch to up to two pairs of Bluetooth headphones within a range of 32’. Bionik also made sure to include a pass-through charging feature, so you can charge your Switch and stream audio at the same time.
The Power Commuter is available starting today from any of the links included above. The BT Audio Sync has yet to release, but will be available starting August 5, 2019. You can current pre-order the peripheral on Bionik’s official website.
