The Nintendo Switch offers a rich selection of original and third-party accessories. From a new case to a spare set of Joy-Con controllers, we’ve rounded up over 25 of our favorite picks. Game on!
amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector
This screen protector is crystal clear, scratch-resistant, and affordable. During our tests, we found that the amFilm screen protector was easy to install, and we didn’t have to deal with any air bubbles, either. Fingerprints wipe right off, and it doesn’t cause a glare on your screen.
Best of all, you get two of them with your purchase! It even includes a handy guide and all the tools you need to apply it.
SteelSeries Arctis 3 Bluetooth
The Arctis 3 Bluetooth gaming headset is lightweight, comfortable, and relatively portable. Plus, it’s nice-looking and quite affordable. Better yet, it’s one of the few headsets that will physically connect to the Switch console while also pairing wirelessly over Bluetooth with a smartphone or tablet, so that you can run Nintendo’s voice-chatting app simultaneously.
PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controller
When you buy multiplayer-focused games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate you’ll definitely want an extra controller or two on hand for your friends. If not they’ll be stuck playing with the teensy tiny Joy-Con that comes with your Switch. We recommend this affordable wireless controller, if you don’t want to drop $70 for Nintendo’s own Pro Controller.
It may not feel as premium as the Pro Controller, but it still is comfortable and easy to pair. Our only complaint is that it isn’t rechargeable. It’s powered by two AA batteries, instead.
It’s worth noting that Hori makes a wireless rechargeable Switch controller, however, it costs $50. We think if you’re spending that much you might as well just spend a little bit more for the Pro controller.
Power A Nintendo Switch Hybrid Cover
If you don’t want to lug your Switch in a hard carrying case that takes up a ton of room in your backpack, consider this protective cover from Power A. It’s thin and not as bulky as most other carrying cases, but it still gives your console some protection from getting scuffed up in your backpack. It has a magnetic design, and it even comes with a screen protector.
HORI High Speed Car Charger
This officially licensed car charger is an absolute must if you plan to take your Nintendo Switch on a road trip. It has a lengthy 6-foot cable to plug in and play anywhere throughout your vehicle. The Switch only has a 3-hour battery life, and if you don’t want to lug around a portable battery, this cable will ensure you never get greeted by a low-battery warning.
If you want just a standard AC adapter, Nintendo sells one of those, too
FYOUNG Car Headrest Mount
Another convenient car accessory for the Switch is this headrest mount that clasps to the arms underneath your vehicle’s adjustable headrest. It keeps your Switch secure and easily in view during those long road trips. It even comes in black, red, or white to perfectly match your car’s interior. The stand will even work with your smartphone or small tablet. We were glad to see that it doesn’t block the Switch’s charging port, either.
AmazonBasics Travel and Storage Case
Even though the Switch has a built-in battery that allows you to use it anywhere, sometimes you’ll want to play on the big screen.
We recommend this carrying case for traveling with your Switch system and its dock. It’ll keep everything snug and protected, because it has specific compartments for your console, dock, power adapter, Joy-Con, and Pro Controller.
