In the market we find gel, resin, plastic or tempered glass protectors, the last two of which offer more options to choose from. Plastic is the simplest and most affordable resource to protect the screen from fingerprints, scratches, dust or friction.

Accessories for controls
The Joy-Con of the Nintendo Switch are small, a key feature for portability and lightness but sometimes can become somewhat uncomfortable, especially if you play for hours.
This is the reason why in the market there are accessories such as grips of different shapes, controls, strings and other accessories that facilitate the gaming experience and protect the Joy-Con.
The Nintendo games stand out because they promote the multiplayer lounge, allowing us to play with family and friends in the Wii style.

Although you can charge the Nintendo Switch and the Joy-Con at the same time through the USB-C port integrated into the base, there are different charging solutions on the market: car chargers, brackets for controls that allow us to have the controls ready for use or even supports for the console that make it possible to play through your screen and at the same time feed your battery.

Supports for Nintendo Switch
The Switch is a console that stands out for its mobility, which allows us to play in the lounge by projecting the content on a television or projector, or with its own screen. In the latter case we appreciate a support to tilt and have it at eye level at different heights and also be able to load at the same time, something that is not possible per se by the location of its cargo port.
In this section you will find accessories for both situations, as well as some storage solution to leave it in view and organized.

The battery of the Nintendo Switch can last from 3 to 6 hours depending on the game and the configuration, a time that may be insufficient for your expectations. As your battery is not removable, a good idea for more intensive users is to purchase an external battery.
Although this power bank purchase guide for smartphones is a good starting point to know how they work and what features to look for in external batteries, in this article of VidaExtra they explain in detail how a good power bank should be if we want it for Nintendo Switch.
As detailed, in these cases it is worth acquiring a power bank of 20,000 mAh capacity that allows us to reach 10-12 hours of play. It is essential that you have a fast charge (at least 5V / 2.1A, that is, 10.5W).
We will also pay attention to the ports they have, especially the compatibility with USB-PD or USB Power Delivery , a standard used by Nintendo that allows us to play while the console is being charged.
Although it is voluminous, this power bank of AUKEY of 20,000 mAh allows charging devices at 18W and has USB and USB-C ports to charge up to three devices at the same time. For 36.20 euros
Something more compact and light is this Omars external battery of 20,000 mAh capacity that also reaches 18W through the USB-C Power Delivery port. It has USB and USB-C to charge two devices. For 41.99 euros
Another power bank recommended for the Nintendo Switch is this Poweradd ( 55.99 euros ) of 26,800 mAh capacity. It is large and versatile, with two inputs and three outputs, managing to provide up to 45W. For 55.99 euros
Micro SD cards
Beyond the game cartridges, in the eShop we find very interesting games that we can store in the switch itself or in micro SD cards, since the Nintendo console is prepared for microSDHC cards up to 2 TB.
In the market we find a lot of memory cards microSD, microSDHC and microSDXC cards compatible with Switch and, as happened in the previous point, a good starting point can be a general SD card purchase guide.
However, as we want it for the Nintendo Switch, in Vidaextra we recommend betting on the Micro SDXC class 10 and at least U1 and I. In terms of capacity, it is best if they are 32 GB or higher.
64 GB MicroSDXC memory card Toshiba EXCERIA M302
A simple and affordable solution if you are going to continue betting fundamentally on physical games is this Toshiba alternative with a reading speed of up to 100 MB / s, Class 1 and UHS 1. For 16.85 euros .

The Poké Ball Plus ball is used to play Pokémon Let’s Go instead of Joy-Con, transforming the game experience into something more interactive by being able to emulate the launch of Poké Balls. It has movement controls, emits lights and vibrations. For 60.09 euros.
If you buy it, you can load it in the traditional way or with a load base like this one from Hori ( 34,99 euros ).
