If you're the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch then chances are you've already realised that the 32GB the system comes with is woefully inadequate if you're planning on downloading loads of lovely games from the eShop.
Thankfully it is easy to boost the storage by using Micro SD cards for Nintendo Switch. While the Nintendo Switch technically supports Micro SD cards as big as 2TB, these don't exist yet and would be far too expensive for the average consumer even if they did. Realistically at the moment you'll want to buy a 256GB card at the top end, and maybe consider a lower-capacity option if you don't want to hurt your bank balance too much.
We will update this guide as soon as 512GB Micro SD Cards for Nintendo Switch become available.
With that in mind here are the best Nintendo Switch Micro SD cards on the market right now. We've tried to include an option to suit all budgets, because we're nice like that.

Samsung 256GB EVO+ Micro SD
Let's get one of the most expensive cards out of the way first. The Samsung 256GB EVO+ isn't cheap, but it's reasonable when compared to the prices of other quality brands. If you're after a long term investment for your Nintendo Switch which you won't have to swap out after a year or two then this is a good place to start.
SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD
Did you even know that 200GB capacity Micro SD cards were a thing? Realistically this card is probably your best option - it'll give your Nintendo Switch a more than adequate boost storage, while not breaking the bank at the same time. SanDisk is one of the most reputable brands in the memory card business, so you can't go wrong here.
Lexar High-Performance 128GB Micro SD
If you're not planning to download many retail games then a 128GB Micro SD card will do just fine. These offer a great balance between cost and capacity. Heck, it might even be worth buying two 128GB cards and just swapping them over when needed. The UK version of this product also comes bundled with a nice looking Micro SD card USB reader which we're sure will come in handy.
SanDisk Ultra 128GB Micro SD
We've thrown in another 128GB micro SD into our guide as we think they are probably the best bang for your buck and the SanDisk branded cards are known for their high quality. You won't go too far wrong here.
Samsung EVO 128GB MicroSDXC
This 128GB option from Samsung should give you enough space for a fair few eShop purchases, and it won't break the bank, either.
Samsung EVO Select 64GB Micro SDXC
Here's an option for those who really don't plan on downloading too much on to their Nintendo Switch. This will still give a nice boost to the paltry 32GB onboard memory for basic functions like game patches and DLC, and you'll even still have room left over for some great indie games too. This could be a good option for you.
Toshiba Exceria 128GB Micro SD
Toshiba has two excellent value cards on the market at the moment, including this 128GB option which should be enough for most Switch owners.
Toshiba Exceria 64GB Micro SD
This is Toshiba's other offering. 64GB isn't much additional storage but these cards are quite cheap, making them ideal for those of you who plan to buy retail games mainly and don't want to spend too much money on expanding your Switch storage.
OV Pro 64GB Micro SDXC
We've never heard of this brand either, but the price is reasonable for 64GB of additional memory. If you're on a tight budget then don't let the lack of a brand name put you off - this is great value.
Whichever Micro SD card you pick, you're going to be increasing the potential of your beloved Nintendo Switch. If you plan on taking your Switch out with you on your travels, having a large capacity will be a great idea as you won't need to carry loads of pesky carts around with you.
