Moga Ace Power charges iPhone while playing

Moga appears set to release an iPhone-compatible game controller in the near future, as video and images of the device have popped up online. The Moga Ace Power showed up on the Twitter feed of @evleaks on Friday, and a YouTube video of the device has since emerged. The device shown off in both features a controller layout similar to that of Microsoft's Xbox, and it is also said to charge an iPhone while it is connected.

The Ace Power reportedly packs an 1800mAh battery pack inside its frame, which will likely enable lengthy gaming sessions without draining the battery of an iPhone. It appears to be compatible only with newer iPhones, including the 5, 5c, and 5s, as well as the fifth-generation iPod touch.

Apple added controller support to iOS devices with the release of iOS 7, and Moga is one among a few companies that are looking to capitalize on that addition. Logitech and ClamCase have also teased offerings, but no company has yet given specifics on pricing or availability.
