As a console, the Nintendo Switch is tough to beat. It’s super cute, super portable, and it pulls double duty as a home console. As much as I love the PS5 and Xbox One X, they’re not exactly portable. Because the Switch is both a mobile and home console, you might want to check out some accessories that can let you play longer, download more games, and practice your swordplay in Link’s Awakening. A few of these are suitable for the Switch Lite as well, the Switch’s mobile-only sibling that cannot dock to a TV.

Updated March 2021: We’ve adjusted pricing, added some Switch Lite links to products where relevant, removed a couple items that were no longer in production, and added the HyperDrive 60W USB-C Power Hub and TV dock for Switch.
