I'm a huge Nintendo fan and have owned every Nintendo system since the NES. Over the years, I've learned that you can significantly increase your enjoyment of any given console with the proper accessories — and the Nintendo Switch Lite is no exception. I've taken some time and gathered together the best Switch Lite accessories for you to look over. See which items would make your gaming experience better.
Just in case
This case includes a carrying handle for easy transportation, has slots for 19 games, and features a hard shell to keep it safe from bumps and drops.
This charging stand is compact and allows you to keep your Switch Lite upright while you play. It's perfect for use at home or on trips.
This three-pack of glass screen protectors is perfect whether you have multiple Switch Lite systems in your home or want to have extras on hand.
Purchasing this screen protector and clear case duo will help prevent damage, scratches, and bumps. It could prolong the life of your Switch Lite.
Call me Slim
This is a super-compact case that still gives plenty of protection. It stores eight games and has a carrying handle for easy transportation.
Get a grip
The handles are textured to prevent the device from falling from your hands. This also doubles as a case and will protect your Switch Lite from damages.
On the road
It has slots for 14 game cartridges, a zipper pouch for accessories, a controller slot, and a pouch for additional storage. It's perfect for travel.
Gimme some space
If you plan on purchasing lots of digital games, you're going to want a microSD card. This particular one is Mario-themed and can hold up to 128GB.
There are several awesome designs, including Mario, Zelda, and Spyro themes. They're each powered by AA batteries and last up to 30 hours.
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has NFC capabilities, HD rumble, motion controls, and just feels good in your hands. The battery lasts long, and there's a battery life indicator.
These headphones come with a USB-C dongle that you plug into the bottom of your Switch Lite to make the wireless functionality possible.
This Genki Audio Lite is one of our favorite accessories for the Switch Lite. Seamlessly bring Bluetooth to your Switch Lite, and look great while doing it.
The silicone color matches your Switch Lite and works with the tempered glass to protect your handheld against dings and scratches.
Bring your game
This colorful case holds up to 24 Nintendo Switch games at a time, and it even comes with a removable microSD card holder that can store up to two cards.

Switch Lite owners will find that certain accessories make their gaming sessions more convenient. Of all of the accessories on this list, the one I recommend the most is the Butterfox Compact Carrying Case. The hard shell protects the system from dings and scratches when on the go.
I especially love that it has a handle making it easier to tote around. The inner storage area seals via zipper. So you won't open your case and find your random accessories have spilled all over your Switch Lite. Butterfox offers this case in a few different colors, so you can be sure to find a look you like best.
If you plan on purchasing a lot of digital games, you should invest in a microSD card. I suggest this SanDisk 128GB one as it will give you plenty of room for downloading games and taking screenshots. This card should last you a long time before getting full, and I love the look of it. You'll find that several Switch games are better to play if you have a separate controller in your hands.
If you're looking for something inexpensive, I highly recommend one of these PowerA Wireless ones. They come in several designs showcasing your favorite characters, and they feel great in your hands. One of the best parts about these controllers is that they last up to 30 hours on a pair of fully charged AA batteries. Plus, they're less expensive than some other wireless options out there.
