The Nintendo Switch is universally adored and admired, as evidenced by the large number of those who have attempted to replicate its enchantment. One such example is the Steam Deck, which attempts to bring the portability and versatility of the Nintendo Switch to PC gaming. Having said that, the Switch isn’t without flaws, and it doesn’t appear as though Nintendo is interested in releasing a new model that addresses some of its users’ gripes. Fortunately, ardent Switch enthusiasts at Plenbo have stepped in to provide an upgrade for the handheld console.
Nothing brings on sweaty palms and frantic button-mashing quite like thinking that you won’t have enough battery life left before the next save point in a video game. Of course, you might try to scramble for a power bank that is compatible with your device, but it would mean sacrificing a few precious seconds that could cost you the opportunity to claim your delicious triumph. At first glance, the G-Cover appears to be little more than a battery case for the Nintendo Switch, but that is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what this ingenious product can do to improve your gaming experience, whether you are on the road or at home.
This case is really composed of a number of modular components, with the main body functioning as both a battery dock and a kickstand. There are removable Joy-Con cases on either side of it, which can also be slotted together to form a single but larger controller, so you won’t have to lug along the official grip that comes with every Switch. Those handles also conceal card slots, allowing you to take your favorite games with you wherever you go. Then there are the batteries, which have a purpose other than simply extending the life of the Switch. Because the detachable batteries have their own USB-C socket, you can use it to power your other electronic devices as well.
The G-Case, on the other hand, is only one component of a larger ecosystem that Plenbo has built around the Nintendo Switch. The OneDock, which completely eliminates any and all friction when attempting to operate the Switch in TV mode, is also noteworthy. The space-saving block, which is about the size of a huge phone charger, links to the Switch and a TV through wires, while the OneDock itself can be plugged into any standard electrical outlet. The OneDock’s versatility doesn’t stop there, since it also serves as a charger and a computer hub, among other things.
This is not an accident: the way the G-components Case’s work together and independently may remind you of some futuristic armor or gear, and this is not by chance. Its largely white theme and red accents were especially chosen to pay homage to the popular enormous robots from the Gundam franchise, which are featured prominently in the Gundam franchise. Like those robots, the G-Case not only provides additional safety and comfort, but it also brings a strong modular system that promises to take your Switch game to a whole new level as well.
