SwitchCharge IndieGoGo Project Brings Longer Battery Life to the Nintendo Switch

SwitchCharge IndieGoGo Campaign Seeks Crowdfunding for Nintendo Switch Charging Cradle That Promises at Least 12 Hours of Battery Life

While the Nintendo Switch itself is an awesome console, its 2.5-6 hours of potential battery life is certainly a disheartening obstacle to overcome. But deep down in our hearts, we all knew it wouldn’t be long before hardcore Nintendo fans and dedicated gamers alike would come up with their own solutions to the staggering battery life issue. The SwitchCharge IndieGoGo campaign offers their hardware to the public through crowdsourcing their Nintendo Switch charging cradle that promises a full 12 hours of battery life (at least), so road trips with your Nintendo Switch will be much more enjoyable now that you know your battery won’t die around 3 hours later.

Although the Campaign is seeking a whopping $80k for funding, their tiers are offering the SwitchCharge at discounted prices of $75, $85, or $95 while slots on these tiers last, and the game times you’ll be getting out of the charging cradle are phenomenal. Check out the average battery life times recorded from the SwitchCharge Beta Tests:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 10hrs 40mins
  • 1-2-Switch: 12hrs 55mins
  • Fast RMX: 13hrs 20mins
  • Snipperclips: 13hrs 30mins
  • Shovel Knight: 14hrs 15mins

While some games get a bit under 12 hours, some get fairly more time, which we can see by comparing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gameplay battery life to Shovel Knight‘s.

You can check out the full IndieGoGo campaign for the SwitchCharge on the preview that’s currently listed here!
