Venom Power Pack and Stand for Nintendo Switch delivers extra juice for serious gaming on the go

UK-based gaming accessory maker Venom has revealed its Power Pack and Stand for Nintendo Switch, a portable charger that not only comes installed with a large 10,000 mAh battery, but also a built-in kick-stand, too.

Unlike the standard Nintendo Switch dock, which does not feature an in-built battery, the Venom Power Pack and Stand securely locks in place around the console while also keeping all ports and buttons fully accessible, meaning that you can continue to play while the Switch’s battery is charged.

These cheap handhelds, sold as impulse buys at drug stores and Toys ‘R Us (RIP), are the latest thing to be collected and emulated in full by MAME and the Internet Archive.
