HyperX at CES 2020: ChargePlay Clutch for Switch, Cloud Flight S, In-house Switches

HyperX made a splash at CES 2020 with several innovations. The star-attraction was the ChargePlay Clutch, an innovative Nintendo Switch battery dock that lets you extend your gaming session by augmenting a hot-swappable battery-pack. This battery pack has a Qi certified wireless charging receptacle, and the separately-purchasable ChargePlay Qi dock lets you charge up to two battery packs in one go. You can also split the contraption into two, such that the head unit sits on a table with a kick-stand, while the two JoyCons get grips of their own.

The HyperX Cloud Flight S is another innovative gaming peripheral for those on the move. It is an around-the-ear headset with a conventional mic stock. One of the two cans has a Qi wireless charging receptacle so you can charge it on any Qi-compatible charging surface. The internal batteries provide up to 30 hours of use on a full charge. The internal DAC provides a virtual 7.1 surround sound, while the NGenuity software lets you control its RGB illuminated HyperX logos.
HyperX is also moving toward designing more of their own mechanical switches for keyboards under its main brand. They had only display an addition to their HyperX Alloy Origins keyboard, which was shown with their pudding-style PBT/doubleshot keycaps, and underneath is the new HyperX Aqua switch, a switch designed for high tactile feedback (possibly similar to Cherry MX Brown). On our way out, we also spotted some already launched products such as the Pulsefire Raid mouse, and Fury Ultra RGB illuminated mousepad.
