The Best Mobile Gaming Accessories
Gaming Accessories For Smartphones
Smartphones have come a long way since they were first introduced by Apple over ten years ago. In that time, we’ve seen them grow into powerful devices that are fit to rival most mid-tier computer systems in some cases. This is especially true when it comes to mobile gaming, which has seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years.
Gaming accessories are not always necessary to enjoy a game on a smartphone, but they can drastically increase the amount of fun that can be had, and they’re often interesting to use and provide countless hours of entertainment. For the gamer on the go, these are the best mobile gaming accessories on the market right now.
- Moga Pro Power
This controller is designed for a range of phones, including all those within the spectrum of Android and iPhone. The grip on the controller means that it’s easy to handle, and provides the same feel as a conventional controller that would normally be found with a console. The controller comes with integrated Bluetooth, meaning that there doesn’t have to be any unnecessary cables between the controller and the phone. Additionally, it’s a light device, weighing in at 160 grams in total, making it extremely portable, and due to the fact that the phone itself is held above the controller, cooling is maximised.
- VR Box Headset
While VR is still trying to break into a larger market, there are some headsets that are worth looking into, especially for those gamers who are looking for a more portable option that will work with most modern smartphones. The VR Box Headset is the best option for that category, and is aimed at those serious about mobile VR gaming. Having a modern, powerful smartphone is recommended, as the headset will rely entirely on the software and hardware of the phone, meaning that smartphones with lacking specs may battle to keep up with the supported games, as well as the head-tracking and interaction that comes with most VR games.
- Google Chromecast Ultra
Part of Google’s range of mobile and home devices, the Chromecast Ultra is the ultimate tool when it comes to broadcasting a game directly on to the TV at home. The Chromecast can automatically sync with all the Google devices within the vicinity, providing high-quality streaming capabilities. The device can project everything from 3D games to eSports betting NZ apps. The device also supports screen mirroring, and while the list of games it can support is growing, it’s currently fairly limited.
- Aukey Powerbank
The biggest problem with gaming on smartphones right now is the limited battery life. The average smartphone can burn through its battery storage within a couple of hours when it comes to 3D gaming, meaning that those on the move will need an external power source to keep their device running. The Aukey 20000mAH Powerbank is the ultimate resource of portable power, and offers around three or four charges for most modern devices.
