If you own any of the Control+ Technic models released during the last few years you've probably found it a nuisance having to keep changing the batteries, which in most instances requires the hub to be removed from the model.
To solve the problem a rechargeable battery pack is needed, one which can be charged in-situ, and arguably LEGO should produce one itself.
That is unlikely to happen, however, so a couple of engineers and LEGO fans have come up with their own solution and have launched a project on Kickstarter: Phondly EnBo PU battery pack for LEGO Control+ HUB.
Early pledgers can secure a lithium-ion battery pack that directly replaces the battery holder of the Control+ hub -- both the tabbed and screw versions -- and can be charged via a USB-C port on the bottom, for €60.
Head on over to Kickstarter to find out more and to pledge.
