SNES Controller External Battery: Super Famicharge

Last January, we checked out Columbus Circle’s external battery and microSD card reader that looks just like a Famicom controller, down to the clickable buttons. Turns out it’s called a Retcon Battery, meaning Retro Controller Battery. Naturally, the shop calls its new SNES controller battery the Super Retcon Battery.

The Super Retcon Battery doesn’t have a microSD card reader, but it makes up for it with a 10,400mAh battery and four USB charging ports, a vast improvement over the Retcon Battery’s 3600mAh battery and single charging port.

Amazon Japan is selling the battery for ~$42 (USD), but if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of importing you can get it from Play-Asia for $45.
