Nintendo Switch gamers have noted that the charge case of the console may extend battery life up by 12 hours. It should also be noted that the hybrid console allows playing while charging. Furthermore, beta testing of the Nintendo Switch Charge revealed that gamers could go over 14 hours of gameplay on the device. In the meantime, Game Co. expects that the console would boost the company's earnings.

Play And Charge At The Same Time

The Nintendo Switch Charge has been touted as the first-ever charging case for the recently launched console. The charging case comes with an adjustable kickstand that may be repositioned at different angles. It also boasts a built-in 12,000mAh battery pack intended to increase game time by as much as 12 hours, Nintendo Insider reported. Additionally, the Nintendo Switch Charge boasts built-in card slots that may carry two additional games as well as a Slidelock for quick locking and unlocking on the console.

It has also been noted that the battery was specifically designed to allow Nintendo Switch gamers to play and charge at the same time. Beta testing has revealed that the battery may last up to 10 hours and 40 minutes while playing "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," 13 hours and 20 minutes on "Fast RMX," and 14 hours and 15 minutes on "Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove."

Not A Failure But A Huge Success

In other news, with the Nintendo Switch selling out across the globe, one Wall Street analyst noted a potentially big boost in earnings, Investopedia reported. Jeffries analyst Atul Goyal noted that the Nintendo Switch is impressive as the game system has been sold out nearly everywhere. Goyal has likened the recent launch to that of the Wii in 2006 noting that the new console shows rare signs of a potentially big success.

The Nintendo Switch announcement has prompted stock trading from 12 percent to 15 percent. However, Goyal noted that while the market concluded the console's failure, the opposite may be true. In the meantime, Goyal advises investors to wait for the Nintendo Switch sales to translate into earnings upside.
