MOGA Ace Power leaked, a controller fitted around your device instead of under it

MOGA Power Ace

MOGA controllers are awesome accessories that allow you to play games (like first person shooters) the way they were meant to be played: with a controller, not clunky touchscreen inputs. The MOGA Power series even charges your device with a built in battery, which makes it all the better. However, all of these accessories have one issue. When clamping the phone into the built in clip, the whole thing becomes top heavy.

Thanks to @evleaks, we can check out some leaked images of MOGA’s newest potential product, the MOGA Ace Power. We’ve seen this concept many times before, but this is the first time we’ve seen it done by a popular company. It’s a controller split in two, with each piece flanking your phone’s display. It’s an awesome product judging by looks alone, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

This controller is also part of the Power line of accessories, so it comes with a built in 1,800 mAh battery with a connector on one of the sides to charge your device.

Unfortunately, the product in these renders is made for the iPhone 5 and 5S, having a Lightning connector inside. This is why it’s so easy to make iPhone accessories: one accessory can fit multiple devices. However, we haven’t given up hope that PowerA will make a few versions for some popular Android devices, or maybe a universal one with no charging capabilities (which I would be fine with). But having this for a Galaxy Note 3, with that beautiful and massive 5.7-inch display, would be perfect.

If this was available for your favorite Android device, would you buy one? Do you think of these accessories as necessary? Or would you rather pick up an NVIDIA SHIELD? Leave a comment telling us your thoughts!

    Like the idea, let’s see how it works in the real world.

    Would love it for my nexus 4

    I would buy this in a heartbeat for my Galaxy Note 3 for playing old games through emulators. I’m throwing money at my screen right now and nothing is happening. :-(

    I *might* even be more apt to try out some of the more controller-oriented Android games if I had this.

    I’m thinking that with the battery it’ll probably sell for around $99? I don’t know what the current ones cost, but I’m guessing they’ll probably charge a premium for this new one, especially if it ends up being iPhone-only (iPhone users and their money are often easily parted).

    Awesome.

    Lets see how this idea works out. Looking good.

    Phonejoy already did this and its already available for both ios and android, changing enough in size to accompany up to the galaxy note 2 and 3.

    Not sure if moga decided to just rip off the design..

    I like that they copied the xbox controller. Its the best controller I’ve used.

  • Odie

    Aside from a few outliers, isn’t the micro-USB adapter the standard for Android powered phones? This looks like a really good controller otherwise, hope it’s price is reasonable and doesn’t require proprietary software.
