Turn your iPhone into a gaming machine with the Logitech PowerShell

The gaming peripheral lets you level up your gameplay console-controller style and load up on battery life at the same time

Love the games that the iTunes store has to offer, but loathe the limited tactility of a touch screen? The Logitech PowerShell Controller and Battery is ready to change the way you game.

Mighty morphing

To transform your iThing into a gaming powerhouse, just click it into the controller and you’ll be all set to enter the zone. Equipped with the same D-pad, shoulder triggers and face buttons like the well-thumbed controller at home, it’s just like getting back on the bike again.

Moving the controls to the external shell space also means more screen estate without your thumb getting into the visual way of things. And given its slight size, this fits easily into your pocket for more gaming on the go.

Game apps can glug a fair bit of juice, so the PowerShell Controller comes prepared for the drinking party with an extra keg of 1500 mAh battery. For added convenience, both device and controller batteries can be recharged with your iThing still sitting snugly within the PowerShell Controller.

The Logitech PowerShell Controller and Battery is compatible with theiPhone 5s, iPhone 5, or iPod touch (5th generation) running iOS 7. It will be available end-December 2013 for S$129.
