4 Must-Have Nintendo Switch Accessories and Extras

Shopomo brings you the essential Nintendo Switch accessories and extras you'll need to get the most out of the console

There are a number of Switch accessories that would benefit early adopters of Nintendo’s new console. The Nintendo Switch currently retails for £279.99 but doesn’t come with everything you need to get the most out of the console.

If you plan on using the Nintendo Switch while out and about, you could benefit from purchasing a high capacity power bank. If you’re on a long haul flight and wish to play your Switch, you’ll only get around 3 hours of playtime, especially with more graphically demanding games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

With that in mind, there are Nintendo Switch accessories that are a must-have for anyone thinking about getting one. From additional controllers to powerbanks, these peripherals will ensure you get the most out of the console.

    Price: £46.99

    An absolute essential. If you want to avoid the nightmare of running out of charge halfway through a flight, the Anker Powercore+ 20100 is your friend.

    Not only does the Powercore+ 20100 charge the Switch perfectly via its USB-C port, it also has two more normal USB ports for charging other gadgets such as the MacBook.

    Also when it came to read and write speeds the Lexar MicroSD performed well and won’t negatively impact the performance of your Switch either.
