No more crossed wires just Drop and Charge!!

Gamers know there’s nothing more frustrating than having your wireless controller run out of power at those crucial gaming moments– whether you’re in the middle of losing those love-handles on Wii Fit, mowing-down your mates in Mario Kart Wii, or ridding the world of Russian rebels in Call of Duty 4 on your Xbox 360.

That’s why Exspect has launched its Drop‘N’ Charge Range, making it even easier to keep your Nintendo Wii controllers, Wii Fit board, and Xbox 360 controllers fully charged. Simply replace the standard batteries in the controller/board with an Exspect compatible battery pack and then place it on the charge pad. A quick 3-4 hours charge on Exspect’s Drop‘N’ Charge pad will give you enough playing time for a marathon gaming session*.

Using radio frequency (RF) waves that transmit electrical current from one point to another the Drop‘N’ Charge will charge up to two batteries per pad, either separately or simultaneously. Unlike typical charging stations, the Drop‘N’ Charge allows you to fully charge your remote without removing the silicone skin, Wii MotionPlus or having to dock the device. This is unique to the Exspect Drop‘N’ Charge range and allows charging across several games platforms using one Drop‘N’ Charge pad.

Only transmitting an electric current when a compatible battery pack is placed on the mat, the Drop‘N’ Charge offers gamers a completely safe way to charge their wireless gaming accessories. It is also a highly energy efficient system as the charge induction stops the moment the battery packs reach full capacity, so you can leave them on the pad for as long as you like, without wasting energy.

The Drop‘N’ Charge Range eliminates the need to buy and replace regular batteries, which can be costly in the long term– just plug-in a rechargeable Exspect battery pack and Drop‘N’ Charge. For those that want to know the minute their devices are fully charged, the pad comes with LED indicators to illustrate the charge status by either a red/green glow.

“Wireless controllers have really enhanced the gaming experience, so it comes as little surprise that gamers frequently find themselves running out of power,” said Mike Sanderson, Head of Development, Exspect.“With our Drop‘N’ Charge Range gamers can now quickly and easily re-charge their controllers, whilst reducing their energy consumption and saving money on batteries all at the same time.”

1 x Dual Charge Pad
