Snakebyte have released a fair few pieces of kit for the Switch, and we’ve been putting these through their paces – here are our thoughts on what we’ve tested so far.
Snakebyte Dual Charge: Base S [On Snakebyte site here]
The Base S is the big accessory here – and we mean big. It’s a sizeable beast that allows you to charge your Pro Controller and two joy-cons. There’s also room for the Switch docking station itself alongside 10 Switch-play covers. It holds everything snugly and doesn’t feel cheap considering the price.
There’s no getting away from the fact that this isn’t the prettiest accessory that we’ve ever seen though. If you can (literally) look past that then this is a solid piece of kit.
Snakeybyte Arrow: Charge S [On Snakebyte site here]
Slightly smaller is the Arrow: Charge S, which looks to hold and charge just one pro controller and four joy-cons. It has 5 LED charge indicators coloured red and green, and we had no issues in setting it up.
Again it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing device, but it certainly beats having your spare joycons lying around and falling down the side of the sofa. For those who regularly play six-player games this is an accessory worth considering, especially at its reasonable price-point.
Snakebyte Ring: Kit S [On Snakebyte site here]
This is a replacement for the leg strap used in Ring Fit Adventure. Although it doesn’t feel quite as high quality as the real deal – at least in terms of the materials used – we encountered no issues with it after extensive use over a two week period.
It is perhaps a little pricey, but if your official strap has broken this is almost certainly your best option.
