I had a tough time deciding whether to buy one of these since there was quite a bit of polarization between the various reviews. One side says it's great and the other says it's a turd. I give it 5 stars and you can see my comparison/review of this product along with the CTA Digital Hand Grip.

I've had the Nyko Power Grip for several days now, and I couldn't be more impressed.

Some people really love the Vita and have no qualms on it's comfort level, but for me playing on the Vita is very uncomfortable. I could not find an appropriate way to grip it without cramping my hands or feeling strained. So off I went to find a good grip attachment.

In comes the Nyko Power Grip. I decided on this over anything else because of the addition of an internal power system in the grip itself. I didn't expect much of this feature, but I'm very glad I got it. It works as pictured & described. You lay the Vita into the grip then push in the power block attachment and put the switch in the lock position. If you want to charge the Vita, you don't have to take it out, simply insert the power cord directly into the Nyko Power Grip and it will charge both.

That's right, you can charge the Power Grip. I've fiddled around with it, and how the Power Grip works is after several "break in" charges, it will get a green light. Once that light is green, it means you've got a perfect back-up battery that will actually charge the Vita itself when attached. The Vita charging icon appears indicating as such. I let the Vita battery empty to about ~60% before attaching the Nyko Grip, and it indeed recharged the Vita battery to 100%.

The one downfall is that the grip is not 100% snug, meaning the Vita jostles around just a smidge. Very easy solution to this however, simply tear off two squares of paper and fold them, then place them on either side of the power grip, right under where you'd place the Vita. Just enough thickness so it remains snug, but doesn't put undue pressure forcing the Vita out.

My second purchase of the Nyko Power Grip and already only maybe a month a half later and this one messed up. But not for the reasons you would be thinking. Battery was working flawlessly on both of my purchases, first power grip lasted me about 7 months but both were met with the same fate, the proprietary female charging adapter port on the inside would just break from the board.

After the second time that this happened I decided to take it apart to see why it was doing this, and from what I can gather is that the adapter portion is not built to firm into the board. It almost seems like a metallic looking adhesive is holding it down, but it doesn't seem strong enough to keep it firm if you plan on playing your Vita with the grip while it is also connected to the charger. In the near future when I finally decide to purchase a 3rd power grip I plan on manually adding my own sauter to the edges on the side so it can sit firmly in place from all the tugging and pulling.

Overall I strongly recommend this product but learn from my mistakes and charge the grip when it's not going to be in use and do not have it connected to the charger while it's in use. I'm only docking a star because the female adapter portion could be stronger and that ended up as the downfall on both purchases.
Wonderful product, it adds some nice weight and if you have big hands like myself this grip makes playing games a dream compared to just using the Vita without the grip.

While it was working, it was a great product. Battery life was doubled, the grip is comfortable. It stopped taking a charge after a month however

If you're like me, you simply can't find a way to hold PS Vita (or PSP, for that matter) that's consistently comfortable for long-term play. These handhelds just aren't designed like that. I've longed for a portable PlayStation console shaped like an actual controller, and while the Nyko Power Grip doesn't quite reach the lofty standard of DualShock excellence, it's a huge step up from using the Vita by itself.

I primarily bought this grip for the increased comfort, not the extra battery life. It doesn't disappoint in either respect. For the former, the grip boasts a very comfortable rubber-matte finish that beats the cheap plastic you'll find on other grips. The backside of the handles have a couple indentations for your fingers to rest in two different formats: you can place your two middle fingers in each groove, resting your forefinger on the trigger, or place your forefinger and middle finger in the grooves and leave the triggers alone. The second method is more comfortable, but doesn't work particularly well for gaming with the increased distance between your thumbs and the Vita's buttons. The first method is still very comfortable--I don't have to support the Vita with my pinkies and greater separation lets me keep me thumbs straighter for everything from button-pressing to moving the analog sticks.

As for the battery function, it works, but there are some caveats. You'll need to do 3-5 complete discharges and recharges before the internal battery will truly "double" gameplay time, as advertised. The LED light system isn't super clear, either.
