OtterBox Powers Up Xbox Wireless Controllers with New Designed for Xbox Swappable Battery

FORT COLLINS, Colo., June 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --  OtterBox unveiled today an industry-first power solution that will be featured at gaming expo E3. New to the OtterBox gaming portfolio, the Designed for Xbox Power Swap Controller Batteries offers players choice for wireless charging on Xbox Wireless Controllers.

It's inevitable; controllers always die at the worst possible time. OtterBox Power Swap Controller Batteries feature quick-release technology for one-handed install during gameplay. No pause needed. Compatible with standard Xbox Wireless Controllers, a reserve energy cell continues to power your game while you swap batteries to keep you in the game.

"The Power Swap Controller Batteries feature the industry's first on-the-fly hot-swap design," said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke. "Providing uninterrupted power is the natural evolution of our gaming portfolio that allows seamless, ongoing gameplay for console and cloud gamers alike."

Officially part of the Designed for Xbox program, the Power Swap Controller Batteries provide continuous power, which means no need to pause or resync. A reserve cell maintains power while a new battery is clicked into place on the mounting cage. A low-battery alert illuminates your hands, so you know when it's time to make a battery swap. The Power Swap Controller Batteries have been optimized for natural controller balance and feel and are compatible with the rest of the OtterBox gaming portfolio.

The award-winning OtterBox gaming portfolio is an integral element to the evolving gaming landscape. True to the OtterBox name, these products are built to stand the test of time and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
