1. Nintendo Switch Bluetooh Adapter under $50

GuliKit is a brand dedicated to build Nintendo Switch accessories and their Bluetooth adapter is one of their most popular ones. The idea is simple: You connect the adapter to the bottom of your Switch, where the USB Type-C port is located and it enables you to connect wireless headphones. Some of its features is that it supports both AptX and AptX LL, meaning that you will have very low latency.

4. amFilm Screen Protector

There isn’t much to explain on this one. Screen protectors are a must have for pretty much any device. What a lot of people forget is that screen protectors scratch and get blurry over time and heavy use, so replacing them is always welcomed.

5. AmazonBasics Charging Station Dock

We don’t often recommend AmazonBasic products but for the low price of this one and how practical it is, it’s hard not to recommend. This charging station supports 4 joy-cons to be charged at a time and can be plugged directly into the Switch Dock, making it a very convenient way to keep your controllers charged all the time.
