Accessories Update: SmaAcc Power Bank for DualShock 4 and Hori’s Zelda Mario Kart 8 Wheel

MCV takes a look at the best accessories heading to UK retail. This week, PS4 pads can bank on SmaAcc for power and Hori has a golden delight for Zelda fans

SmaAcc Power Bank for DualShock 4 Controller

No player likes it when their controller runs out of battery mid-game, so accessories brand SmaAcc has come up with a remedy for power-related problems.

The SmaAcc 2600mAh Power Bank for DualShock 4 serves as a portable charging station for the PlayStation 4’s pad, allowing users to pump more juice into the peripheral when its built-in battery is running low.

Built around a high-capacity 2600mAh battery, the Power Bank holds enough energy to recharge a DualShock 4 controller more than one and a half times.

Designed with the PS4 pad in mind, the Power Bank fits neatly into the controller’s shape without affecting players’ ability to use the L1, L2, R1 and R2 buttons.

It also boasts an ergonomic design, which means that gamers will remain comfortable during long play sessions and avoid hand cramping.

The Power Bank will automatically turn off when in standby mode, meaning no charge is wasted.

When in standby, the Bank also detects how much power is left in the controller and displays the remaining charge status via four integrated LED lights.

RRP: 49.99

Release Date: Out Now

Distributor: SmaTree


Hori Mario Kart 8 Wheel – Link (Zelda)

This officially-licensed controller cradle is the ideal partner for the similarly golden Wii Remote released by Nintendo alongside The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in 2011.

Designed to be used with Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U – the DLC for which stars the hero of the Zelda series, Link – the wheel is equipped with a trigger button on the underside to make hitting the B button easier.

The wheel also features the iconic Hyrulian crest on its reverse.

All players need to do is pop a Wii Remote into the peripheral, providing extra grip and control while using Mario Kart 8’s motion controls.

RRP: 11.99

Release Date: Out Now

Distributor: Hori
