LOS ANGELES – November 8, 2017 – Inventive console accessories manufacturer Nyko Technologies today launched Charge Base and Thin Case, two new accessories for the Nintendo Switch™. Charge Base is a Type-C charging dock that stores and charges the Nintendo Switch and two Joy-Cons, serving as a secondary charging station. Thin Case protects the exterior of the Switch and Joy-Con without adding bulk, offering an ultra-portable, dockable solution with a tempered-glass screen protector to prevent blemishes and impact damage. Charge Base and Thin Case are now available at GameStop, Amazon and Nyko.com with an MRSP of $29.99 and $12.99, respectively.

“We continue to look for ways to offer added convenience and sleek protection for Switch owners, and Charge Base and Thin Case are must-haves for any Switch owner,” said Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “Charge Base allows gamers to play and charge in tabletop mode simultaneously, while Thin Case, unlike most protective cases, can remain attached while docking the Switch and includes a tempered glass screen protector.”
