Hyperkin, the people who provide peripherals like the Hyperkin Xbox 360 Keypad, has today announced that they're launching a whole new brand called the "Repair Box." Repair Box will offer replacement parts for video game consoles that you've either smashed in rage, dropped down a toilet or, you know, just accidentally damaged.

Hyperkin has also announced the first product that Repair Box will be pushing out; the SNES PowerJack. Those that still own and play their SNES will probably know of a common problem where the plastic around the AC jack decides that it wants to break. Replacement parts for these aren't very common nowadays, and obviously shipping your whole console to a place to get it fixed is going to cost you quite a bit so Repair Box's PowerJack just contains parts to replace the housing itself.

The PowerJack comes complete with a 6-month warranty and a pre-assembled plastic housing. No release date has been given but it's been priced at $12.99
