MOGA first unveiled the Power Series controllers back in early-June. We then saw the controllers come available for pre-order later in the summer, however the shipping timeframe remained as a more open ended mid-October. Well, October has already drawn to a close, but we do have some news for those who may have been waiting for either the Hero Power or Pro Power controller.
In short, both of these controllers have exited the pre-order period and are available for purchase beginning today. Initially the availability will be limited to the MOGAanywhere.com website, however these controllers will be arriving at other retailers shortly. MOGA has said they will both land with retailers to include Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Verizon in “early” November. Basically, these should be available in retail stores fairly soon.
Anyway, as the ‘power’ in the names would imply, these controllers both have a built-in power supply to keep your phone charged while playing. The Hero Power has an 1800 mAh battery and the Pro Power has a 2200 mAh battery. While the battery sizes differ, these both share many of the same features.
For example, both the Hero Power and Pro Power have dual-clickable analog sticks, D-Pad and A, B, X and Y buttons as well as L1/R1 and L2/R2 shoulder buttons and an LED battery life indicator. The Hero Power is touted as having a slim and portable design while the Pro Power is said to have console-style comfort.
Both models also ship with two charging cables and also have support for multiplayer gaming. And as compared to earlier models of the MOGA controllers, both of these are said to have improved ergonomics and improved Bluetooth radios. Otherwise, the Pro Power also ships with a tablet stand. That all being said, the MOGA Hero Power is $59.99 and the Pro Power is $79.99.
