Nintendo Switch Hard Pouch – Black
One of the best things about the Switch is its portability. Take it to the park, on the plane, to the beach or just into the back garden to play games, which is a lot easier to do if you have a protective case. This one’s hard and durable, with room for ten game cards too.

Best Nintendo Switch memory cards
Best Nintendo Switch memory card for a little extra space
SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDXC Memory Card
Most Nintendo games available from the e-shop are under 1GB, and it’s rare that you’ll find many above 12GB – a 128GB card will give you plenty of room to download a lot of digital Switch games.
Best Nintendo Switch memory card for much more storage
SanDisk Ultra 400 GB microSDXC Memory Card
Leaving game cards behind and going all-digital? If you want to have more space – go for one larger than 256GB. Bigger titles on the Switch can be around 50GB, and if you want to store loads of them, the console supports cards up to 2TB.
Best Nintendo Switch chargers
A Joy-Con grip that charges too

While the Switch comes with a grip to transform the Joy-Cons into a traditional controller, you can’t charge them up from the grip. This accessory solves that problem and you can keep playing while they recharge too.

Anything Nintendo-licensed is a safe bet, and this is ideal if you need to charge up to four Joy-Cons at once.
