The MOGA XP7-X Plus, PowerA’s newest offering in the field of mobile gaming controllers, was just released. You probably now consider items like the Razer Kishi or Kishi V2 or the Backbone One when you think of mobile gamepads. That makes sense given that the Backbone One is among the most widely used game controllers for the iPhone. Additionally, there will soon be a model for Android. Additionally, one of the most well-known gaming brands is Razer.
However, PowerA started manufacturing Android controllers long before Razer and has a long history of producing gaming peripherals. The PowerA MOGA XP7-X Plus even has features that its rivals lack. This new controller is therefore at least worthwhile examining.
For long-haul gamers, features like the Boost Mode are designed. Even two of the controller’s buttons can be mapped. And those are merely a few of the noteworthy qualities.

A built-in 2,000mAh battery bank in the controller allows you to wirelessly charge your phone while you play. This is helpful even for phones with large batteries like the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. When your phone needs a little boost, simply flip a switch to turn this on. If you wish to save some of the power bank’s battery for later usage, turn it back off.
However, POWERA makes no mention of pass-through charging. Therefore, it’s possible that you won’t be able to recharge the battery bank when the controller is in use and Boost Mode is turned on. It’s also unclear whether the power bank uses the USB-C port to charge or whether it requires your phone to support wireless charging. Since the website uses the word “compatible,” we were led to believe that your phone had to enable wireless charging.
WORKS WITH CLOUD AND IS DEVELOPED FOR MOBILE
Here, PowerA is obviously targeting a particular kind of gamer with its marketing. This will undoubtedly be a fantastic addition to mobile games that are kept locally, but it was also made to operate with cloud gaming services. the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in particular.

It just involves sandwiching your phone between the two sides, like you would with the Backbone One and Kishi V2. But the attached play stand also enables a tabletop mode. Simply remove it, set your phone or tablet into the stand, and pair the Bluetooth controller.
The MOGA XP7-X Plus is being offered by PowerA for $99.99, making it competitive with the Kishi V2 and Backbone One. You may purchase it through Amazon or AA1.
