Anker is getting a little more into smartphone gaming.
Reported by AppleInsider, Anker has launched the PowerCore Play 6700, a portable battery bank designed for gaming on smartphones. The battery pack is also a grip, allowing iPhone gamers a more comfortable experience when playing their favorite titles.
The Play 6700 packs a 6,700mAh battery, so you'll be able to play for at least two whole iPhone charges before needing to plug back into an outlet. It comes with both a 15W USB-A and USB-C port for more compatibility between smartphones.
The battery pack has a built-in fan to ensure your phone does not run into heat issues during extended play. It also has a kickstand if you want to set everything down and play with an external controller.
Anker does note that the cable you get with the Play 6700 is USB-A to USB-C, so you'll need to use your own Lightning cable when you game with your iPhone.
The PowerCore Play 6700 is available now for $35.99 on Amazon (opens in new tab).
