The Best Nintendo Switch Accessories For 2021

From the Switch Lite to the Switch OLED, here are the best Switch accessories worth picking up, from cases and chargers to grips, screen protectors, and more.


The Nintendo Switch is a versatile console, with the ability to play it docked, handheld, or in tabletop mode, and with that level of versatility comes an absolute barrage of Nintendo Switch accessories designed to make the experience even better. The Switch is great on its own, especially for the relatively low price tag compared to other consoles on the market, but it has a number of shortcomings that players often complain about, including the lack of a traditional D-pad, the inability to connect Bluetooth headsets to it directly, and the generally uncomfortable experience of playing it handheld. That's where Switch accessories can make a huge difference, with brands like Orzly, PowerA, Hori, 8BitDo, and more offering a slew of products to meet Switch users' needs. From Switch carrying cases and screen protectors to Bluetooth adapters, controllers, and grips, there are some fantastic and affordable Switch accessories out there for practically every situation.

There are now three main Switch models: the standard Nintendo Switch, the Switch Lite, and the Switch OLED (releasing October 8). Some accessories, like screen protectors and cases, have separate Switch and Switch Lite versions available. Aside from screen protectors, the same accessories that work for the standard Switch should work for the Switch OLED as well.
