|SanDisk 128GB microSDXC UHS-I card for Nintendo Switch - SDSQXAO-128G-GN6ZA||from $21.99||Buy on Amazon|
Few people know it, but the SanDisk itself in collaboration with Nintendo has thought of these MicroSD cards performing and suitable for gaming! Their peculiarity, as well as being very capacious (well 64GB or 128GB in this case) is that they are characterized by a high speed of reading/writing data that allows the Nintendo Switch to load/download quickly the game data, and then to give you a better experience!
Samsung Evo Plus 128GB
|Samsung 128GB EVO Plus Class 10 Micro SDXC with Adapter (MB-MC128GA)||$24.20||Buy on Amazon|
The Samsung Evo Plus 128GB microSD card is perfect for storing data on our console. Thanks to its large storage capacity. The 32GB of internal storage of the console run out quickly and we need a secondary memory card to store the data of the various games.
Nintendo Switch Stand
|HORI Compact Playstand for Nintendo Switch Officially Licensed by Nintendo||$12.30||Buy on Amazon|
The stands are objects that help us to play comfortably with our console. They are used to support the Switch, allowing us to play with the controller. The Hori stand is a product characterized by an excellent quality/price ratio. It can be adapted to various heights and angles and can be closed to be transported easily.
The external batteries, or called the PowerBank, are essentially Lithium batteries (very similar to the ones we installed in the smartphone) but extremely capacious and above all portable anywhere! Having one of these with you during a trip or otherwise while you are out is practically a must.
|AUKEY 20000mAh Power Bank, Portable Charger with 2 Inputs, 3.4A Dual-USB Output Battery Pack...||$33.99||Buy on Amazon|

|Tronsmart 20000mAh QC 3.0 Portable Charger with 6A Output,USB Type C External Battery for Samsung...||Currently not available||Buy on Amazon|
These are some of the PowerBank that we recommend you buy and that we have selected for their battery capacity (20,000mAh) and for their quality/price ratio.
Nintendo Switch Controller
They are the original controllers of the Nintendo Switch and we decided to insert them in case you had to buy one more (also because you can buy separately the right and the left) or if you want to buy other colors. There are really many available!
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
|Nintendo Switch Pro Controller - Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Edition||$114.00||Buy on Amazon|
We recommend the official Nintendo controller for your console with your eyes closed. Few third-party models manage to reach its quality. This model is perfect for those who prefer a controller of this type to the Joy-Con supplied with the console.
|TUTUO Wireless Controller for Nintendo Switch, Built-in 6-Gyro and Gravity Sensor, Bluetooth Gamepad...||$23.95||Buy on Amazon|
An economical alternative to the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is the Tutuo Bluetooth controller. It is equipped with an excellent quality/price ratio and a good build quality. Connection and combination with the console are quick and easy.
|PowerA Joy-Con Comfort Grips for Nintendo Switch - Red||$9.65||Buy on Amazon|
This object allows us to have more comfort while using the Joy-Con on the Nintendo Switch. The two Joy-Con are inserted into the Power A Grip in an easy and fast way. It will allow an excellent grip and the material quality is close to that of the original accessory.
Nintendo Joy-Con Charging Grip
Another interesting alternative is this charging grip. Basically, it is a normal Power A like the one seen previously (to which you will connect the two Joy-Con to play). Its peculiarity, however, lies in its Type-C input which allows it to be connected to a power source to recharge the Joy-Con while you are using them. Brilliant!
Tutuo Comfort Grip
|TUTUO Comfort Handle Grip with Indicator Lights for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con (Black)||$8.99||Buy on Amazon|
But if you are looking for something really cheap, then once again we recommend you to rely on Tutuo with its simple comfort Grip, but incredibly convenient and cheap! Very easy to use because you will not have to do is insert the Joy-Con and start playing! It also has LEDs to see the operating status.
Orzly Steering Wheel
|Orzly Nintendo Switch Steering Wheel, FOUR PACK, for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch, Mariokart...||$18.99||Buy on Amazon|
This is a Grip that allows us to play comfortably in racing games, like Super Mario Kart. In this package, there are four steering wheels of three different colors (two black, one blue and one red).
Nintendo Switch Dock Set
You know this accessory well because it is nothing more than the official Dock Set that you will receive in the pack with the Nintendo Switch to recharge it while you play or to connect it to the TV. If yours is broken and you are not covered by warranty or you want to buy a second for security, here you are served!
Hori Joy-Con Charge
|HORI Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charge Stand by HORI Officially Licensed by Nintendo||$28.55||Buy on Amazon|
This is a great Joy-Con charger. Up to four controllers can be recharged simultaneously. At the top, there are four LEDs that indicate the charge status of each individual controller.
