Amazon currently has tons of Nintendo Switch Prime Day deals going on right now. However, if you're looking for some third-party Joy-Con controllers the very best deal out there right now is the Tenvoonl Joy-Pad Controller (opens in new tab), which is currently 34% off for Prime Day.

These controller halves look a lot like the official thing and come in several different colors, including this beautiful white reminiscent of the Switch OLED Joy-Con. They're usually far cheaper than Nintendo's official controllers and right now they're even cheaper than usual. Grab some while they're still available and see why they're some of the best-selling Switch accessories this Prime Day.

These babies can run for up to 10 hours on one charge, offer motion controls, and also provide dual rumble. This particular color looks similar to the white Switch OLED controllers. They also come in red and blue, purple and orange, or yellow and green. Nab some while they're 34% off for Prime Day.

In addition to offering the same basic layout and design as the official Joy-Con the Tenvoonl Joy-Pad offers internal gyro for motion controls, dual vibration for immersive play, and can last up to 10 hours on one charge. As long as you juice them back up between sessions, you'll never run out of power while playing your favorite Switch games.

Just keep in mind that as with most third-party Joy-Con controllers, these ones do not offer NFC scanning, meaning they cannot work with amiibo. Still, amiibo scanning isn't something most games need, so if you want to pick up some extra Joy-Cons for game night, need to replace your drifting Joy-Con, or just want controllers that look more in line with the Switch OLED ones then these are a great choice.

Tenvoonl also offers this Joy-Pad in red and blue, purple and orange, or yellow and green if you want a different color choice. These controllers have already been really popular during Amazon Prime Day, so you'll want to jump on a pair before stock runs out.
