The MOGA Hero Power and MOGA Pro Power are both now available either direct from the MOGA website (Pro, Hero) or from Amazon (Pro, Hero) for about $60 and $80 respectively. These devices are the sequel to last year’s MOGA Pocket and MOGA Pro, both of which are now offered at a discounted price on the MOGA Website (Pocket, Pro) and Amazon (Pocket, Pro) for about $30 and $50 respectively.
Built by Power A, the new controllers bring with them a plethora of added features. The more pocketable Hero Power has an 1800mAh battery and the larger Pro Power has a 2200mAh, both of which are capable of charging your Android device via the included MOGA Boost charging cable. Both devices include “S.M.R.T Lock” technology, which is what Power A is calling their improved smartphone grip that can hold devices up to 3.2 inches or 82mm in width.
Both devices are HID-enabled, meaning that you can connect them to your device just like any other Bluetooth controller. Or, if you would prefer, both devices are compatible with the free-to-download Moga Pivot App which steps you through connecting the controller and works as a central hub for your Pivot-compatible games. The Pro Power comes with a tablet stand, and both controllers feature much improved ergonomics — the Hero Power even has a d-pad now, whereas its predecessor, the Pocket, did not.
