It’s been a minute (o.k., a few years) since we reviewed the HyperX ChargePlay Quad which allows you to easily keep up to four Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons charged and ready to go. This week, the company announced the ChargePlay Quad 2 with a new red and white colourway (Poké Ball anyone?) and improved charging time.

The original ChargePlay Quad was a winner here at Techaeris, with no real complaints. The new colourway does tie in more to the Nintendo ecosystem, and reducing the charge time to less than four hours is definitely a welcome addition.
“HyperX continues to enhance its range of console accessories to provide better gaming experiences for players across different platforms.
