If you’re planning a trip this summer and you own the Nintendo Switch, then do we have the perfect product for you.

Anker on Thursday announced a new partnership with Nintendo that will see the company release officially-licensed portable power banks for the Nintendo Switch. Each new battery pack promises to add hours of entertainment to Nintendo’s popular portable console.

According to Anker, the company worked closely with Nintendo to optimize the new battery banks for the Switch. Through Anker’s USB-C Power Delivery technology, the battery banks can deliver fast charging to the Nintendo Switch even during gameplay.

Anker is promising its new battery banks will be able to charge the Switch from 0 percent to 100 percent in under 3 hours. The PowerCore 20100 ($89.99) will add up to 15 hours of additional playtime, while the PowerCore 13400 ($69.99) will add up to 9 hours.

Both battery packs are also capable of powering your other devices that support USB-C, such as a laptop or smartphone.

“We are excited to partner with Nintendo to bring Anker power delivery technology to the Nintendo Switch,” said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations. “We believe our new power banks will be this year’s ‘must-have’ accessory for all Nintendo Switch gamers.”

With so many exciting titles set to hit the Nintendo Switch this summer, plus an online service in a few months, keeping the console charged will be paramount. Anker’s new battery banks are a perfect fit for Switch owners on the go.

You’ll be able to get your hands on Anker’s officially-licensed Nintendo Switch battery packs at the end of this month through and GameStop.
