Switch it up!

Switch Lite owners will find that certain accessories make their gaming sessions more convenient. Whenever you look to purchase an accessory, you'll want to make sure you're buying from a reliable seller and paying a fair price. Keep in mind that the Switch Lite doesn't have a built-in kickstand or detachable controllers. If you want to play a multiplayer game with friends, you'll need to purchase a stand and extra controllers. This Switch Lite isn't cheap so you'll want to invest in some protective accessories.

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.
