Mobile Controllers are making a Comeback at CES 2020

Mobile gaming is a big as ever and there are some amazing titles out there too, not just PUBG and Fortnite. With that we saw quite a few different mobile controllers being launched at CES this year. The two that really caught our attention were the HyperX ChargePlay Clutch and Razeer’s Kishi.

HyperX ChargePlay Clutch

The HyperX ChargePlay Cluth is not so much of a controller, but more of a charging station that gives you a better grip for mobile gaming and extra juice for your mobile device.

On the back of the device there is actually a removable 3000mAh battery. This battery actually features Qi wireless charging and would work perfectly with HyperX’s ChargePlay Base wireless charger. Since the battery is removable you can use it to charge other devices when you aren’t gaming. It has a USB (Type-A) port for charging other devices and LED indicators to let you know how much battery is left. HyperX tells us that the HyperX ChargePlay Cluth will be available in Q2 for $59.99.

Razer Kishi

Razer is going to give you a full controller experience with their Kishi mobile controller. It has a typical console controller layout with two thumbsticks (right and left), a D-pad, ABXT buttons, and two triggers on each side.

The controller is made to fit both Android (USB-C) and iOS (Lighting) devices and since you have that direct connection you shouldn’t have any input lag. Also connecting directly to the controller means that it will not require extra batteries as it is powered by your device. Another really cool thing about the Kishi is that when you are done gaming the two sides of the controller lock together for easy transportation and storage. Razer says that the Kishi will be available in early 2020 and will be priced around $100.
