    A good case, with slots to hold cartridges, cleaning cloth etc, and the Anker Switch Portable Charger if you wanna extend your battery life. If i remember correctly, Nintendo assisted in it's development to make it safe for the Switch

    In Soviet Russia you're the Location
    If you're going to play a lot in a portable mode, make a gift to your hands & buy a grip-case (I prefer Skull & Co.'s, but there're many more choices). Otherwise if you mostly prefer a stationary mode, get a Pro controller.

    A good powerbank, screen protector, pro controller, thumb grips, switch stand, and a good switch carry bag.

    Psa: Some switch case can be incompatible with the dock and comfort grips so check first when buying.

    If it’s a usb c to usb cable, make sure it has a 56k ohm resistor. Anker makes a nice 3 pack.

    The resistor is in place to regulate charging.

    #1) Buy a tempered glass screen protector
    #2) Don't buy a Pro Controller. Buy a 8bitdo Adapter or a Mayflash Magic-NS and use your PS4 Controller, Xbox One Controller or others.
    #3) Buy a case if you want to take it outside
    #4) Buy a large SD card and choose your CFW

    Glass screen protector, case(s) of your choice, pro controller, some sort of stand for tabletop mode, USB network adapter if your WiFi signal is questionable.

    Powerbanks: a standard 5V 2A powerbank of your choice in size will hold the battery relatively steady while playing and slowly charge. A USB C PD will actually charge it while playing and with a proper wall charger the powerbank can be charged in 4 hours. Anker and RavPower are the most popular with the 26800 models the largest that can still travel in an airplane cabin. The RavPower is cheaper than the Anker but does not include a wall charger. The RavPower can occasionally be found for ~$54 on Amazon Lightning Deals, set a camelcamelcamel alert. The Amazon Basics USB C to C cable is rated well and reasonably priced. This is the setup I went with, selecting a slightly more expensive wall charger for extra USB A ports while traveling.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LRQDAEI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I used this $18 Kmashi 15000mAh with the USB C-A pro controller cable before I bought the big RavPower.

    Here is a link to the more expensive Anker
    https://www.amazon.com/Anker-PowerC...1537459506&sr=8-1&keywords=anker+PD+powerbank

    This huge case is good if you need to travel with the dock, extra controllers and other accessories, but you should have a small $12 console only case for around town. (I have two kids and 3 Switches)

    How is that Nintendo boycott in your signature working out for you? :rofl2:

    1. Tempered glass (day 1 purchase) - https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Protector-amFilm-2017/dp/B01N3ASPNV/

    2. Case , I recommend the nyco thin case because is dockable, but maybe you prefer a hard case to avoid fall damage. I have the nyko case, a case is usefull to avoid the fingers to tear down the black color in the back because of the grease.

    https://www.amazon.com/Mumba-Nintendo-Switch-Rubberized-release/dp/B071ZRM6C1/

    3. Pro controller ( i just get one recently, great performance, but i bought it in order to not have to detach the joycons each time (i got lazy), and to play it in the bed.

    4. Travel case (I initialy have the official case, but now i need more room to travel with the charger and a pro controller) -> lots of options.

    Don't have this problem at all, maybe you have to be a bit precise to fit buttons exactly in their places?
