Nyko Power Pak+





Nyko Power Pak Plus 


Nyko continually comes up with fantastic ideas that help families out. The Nyko Power Pak+ is a battery for the Nintendo 3DS. Those of us who have been using the Nintendo 3DS for some months now know the battery life drains quickly. The Nyko Power Pak+ boasts it has two times the game play time. We will get to that in just a bit.

The first thing I noticed about the Nyko Power Pak+ is how sleek it looks. The second thing that hit me is it adds a thickness to the Nintendo 3DS. In fact it would barely fit in my pocket that I normally keep the 3DS in. This got me thinking about certain cases for the Nintendo 3DS. It is possible that using the Nyko Power Pak+ will exclude your case.

Nyko Power Pak+ requires some assembly. There is a tiny little screwdriver in the box along with some screws. A family member who is comfortable with unscrewing and removing the battery is required. Once that is done, the Nyko Power Pak+ easily fits in, and is screwed in. There are only a couple of steps in the process, and I found it pretty simple to perform.

The Nyko Power Pak+ does improve the battery life of the Nintendo 3DS. I did not find it to double the time though. It does last longer. In fact the Nyko Power Pak+ can help you get through more games in Madden, or that dungeon in Zelda 3D, or more tracks in Ridge Racer 3D. I was able to gain additional Athli in DualPenSports. The down side is the Nyko Power Pak+ takes a little longer to charge. There is a charge on the bottom, but the Nyko Charge Base is needed for that.

The price of the Nyko Power Pak+ is very reasonable. I was surprised to find it selling for a penny shy of twenty dollars. This can help on long flights, or road trips. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of the Nyko Power Pak+. Now that I know how well it works I can definitely recommend it.

It was a real pleasure for me to be able to review the Nyko Power Pak+. This little battery has a great feel to it. I am not too big on the added depth, but adapted to it. In fact that is the only real issue I can see with this battery. If Nyko could bring it down to the depth of the Nintendo 3DS it would be a slam dunk. I always smile at Nyko because they bring out some amazing things that improve the lives of gamers.
