Get A Power Bank That Charges Your Nintendo Switch As You Play For $40 Off

Charging your Nintendo Switch on the go is possible, but you'll need a power bank like this to be able to play it at the same time.


If you play your Nintendo Switch on the go, you're likely familiar with the low-battery symbol. The Switch's battery life is not one of its greatest attributes, but if you get a portable charger with Power Delivery (PD) tech, you can charge and play at the same time. Amazon currently has an incredible deal on one of the best PD chargers as well: the Anker PowerCore+ power bank is only $90, down from $130.

In addition to the powerful USB-C port charging, the PowerCore+ comes with two 15W USB ports that are capable of charging phones and a variety of other devices. The package also features a USB-C wall charger if you're at home and want to save on the PowerCore+'s battery capacity.

There are a number of adapters that make it possible to use your favourite pair of headphones with the hybrid console. On top of that, see our choices for the best Nintendo Switch controller, which includes a number of excellent portable Joy-Con alternatives.
