Nintendo Switch Accessories

This page details the accessories available to the Nintendo Switch. From third party Docks, to travel cases, memory cards, decals, adapters and more. You will find a short description of the accessory, its characteristics and the company that sells them. Click on the name of each accessory or its picture to go to their offsite store page.

Please note that this page is for console add-ons only. If you want to check out accessories available for the controllers, click here.

Docks
 

The Dock is the main hub of the classic Switch (the Lite doesn't have it). It allows the console to connect to the TV and recharge. Without one, it would be pretty hard to use your Switch for any significant period of time, but it can be done (check out this article here to find out how). 

There are a couple of different alternatives for the official Dock, but most aren´t really "docks" themselves, they are multiport adapters that can be used as a Dock when connected to the Switch.

 

If you want a more portable Dock than the one Nintendo offers, feel free to check the alternatives ( do note that each of the unofficial alternatives requires an additional power cable to work).

Switch Skins
 

Of course, if you are already interested in dressing up your Dock, with not go the full mile? There are a variety of skins that can make your Switch (and in most cases, the Joy-Con too) look however you want: 

Travel Cases
 

For people who travel a lot or have a long commute and feel uncomfortable just tossing the Switch in their suitcases, there exists another option.

 

These travel cases allow you to put the Switch, and some accessories (depending on the model), in a neatly packed container. The case makes carrying your console much easier and it protects it against impact, allowing you to take your Switch without worries.

 

They come in a variety of sizes. Some allow you to only carry the Switch, while others have the capacity to carry the Dock, a pair of extra controllers and more. Check out the characteristics to see how much each case can hold:

SD Cards
 

The Nintendo Switch comes with 32 Gb of internal memory, which is enough if you only use it to store save data, screen captures and a couple of games. 

 

But what if you want to more? Super Smash Ultimate, for example, takes almost 14 Gbs, practically half the memory. If you wanted to download Smash Ultimate, Mario Oddysey, and Breath of the Wild, you will not have enough memory.

 

In that case, what you need is a micro SD card. Micro SD cards are storage devices compatible not only with the Switch, but with smartphones, cameras, and even drones. You simply insert the card into the back of your Switch and it will automatically be ready to use (after getting formatted). We already wrote about which are compatible with the Switch over here

 

If you are going to download games, you should only consider getting your hands on a card that has more than 64 Gb of memory (please note that if your Switch hasn´t been updated since early 2018, you will need to do so in order for the memory card to work). Here are the cards:

Miscellaneous Accessories

There are a variety of other accessories for the Switch that don´t fit the previous molds. Power banks to recharge the batteries on the go. Protective cases and glass, to make sure your Switch, and its screen, are in mint condition. Car stands and chargers to play on long road trips. A charging cable and AC adapter in case you lost the original ones that came with the console. A LAN adapter so you can connect to the internet without using Wi-fi and more.

Conclusion

There are a variety of accessories to complement your Nintendo Switch. Either if you want to customize it looks with a skin, or if you want something more practical, like a LAN adapter or protective case. Hopefully, you have been able to find something that will enrich your gaming experience.

That said, these are accessories for the console. If you want to look at addons for the controllers, like say, a wheel for the Joy-Con or a Pro Controller charging Station, we have the accessories for the controllers on this page here.
