Nyko Announces PS4 “Intercooler” and Other Console Customizations
Gaming accessory manufacturer Nyko has announced it’s upcoming product line that it will showcase at E3. It includes the company’s “Modular Line,” which are attachable accessories made to seamlessly cool, clean and power today’s current consoles.
Listed below are the products and the official descriptions that will be available for the PlayStation 4.
Intercooler for PlayStation®4
Intercooler for PS4 is designed to dramatically increase the rate at which hot air leaves the system, providing improved ambient temperature for the console. The device attaches seamlessly to the console, matching its décor, texture, and design. Utilizing Nyko’s patented Power Pass-Through technology, the Intercooler is powered by the console’s power cord, requiring no additional cables or plugs. This also ensures that the Intercooler will turn on and off automatically with the console.
Intercooler for PS4 will be available this summer for a MSRP of $24.99.
Modular Charge Kit for PS4
The Modular Charge Kit allows users to easily charge controllers and keep the system clean. Attaching flush to the console, the Modular Charge Kit for PS4 stores two retractable Micro USB cables in a hidden compartment for recharging the DUALSHOCK®4. The top of the unit also houses a detachable cleaning brush with a slide-out detailing edge; ideal for keeping dust, fingerprints and smudges from tarnishing the console’s appearance.
The Modular Charge Kit for PS4 will be available this holiday for a MSRP of $19.99.
Power Pak for PS4
The Power Pak for PS4 is a rechargeable battery pack that provides up to twice the standard battery life for the Dualshock 4 controller. The 1000mAh Lithium Ion battery is housed in a sleek casing, designed to keep the Dualshock’s ergonomics intact, while matching the look and texture of the controller. The Power Pak connects through the controller’s Micro USB port, recharging the Dualshock 4 while in use. The pass-through Micro USB port allows users to easily recharge both the controller and Power Pak through a standard Micro USB cable and is also fully compatible with Nyko’s Charge Base for PS4. The unit also has a dedicated power switch, enabling users to decide when they need extra juice.
The Power Pak is available now for a MSRP of $19.99.
I honestly don’t see a need for the Intercooler since my PS4 has never reached Xbox 360 levels of heat, but that Power Pak does sound handy — especially given how fast the DualShock 4′s batteries run out.
