If you are picking up a shiny new Nintendo Switch Lite when they go into the wild on 20th September, you might be wondering what else you should be adding to your basket with it (other than games, of course). Thankfully the usual third party manufacturers such as HORI and PowerA have you covered with a whole smorgasbord of goodies to accessorise and adorn your brand new Switch Lite. Below you'll find a selection that we think look particularly useful...

Cases for your Switch Lite
With the Switch Lite being so lovely and extra portable, one of the first things you will likely want to get is a case to store it in when it's bouncing around in your backpack. These options will do the trick nicely.
Give your Switch Lite a protective shell
If the constant faff of a tough case feels a bit too fussy for your tastes, then you might want to consider a protective shell instead. HORI's Duraflexi Protector looks rather nice, but there are also silicone slip over shells which are available too when you can't be bothered undoing zips and clasps.
Protect your Switch Lite screen
As with any new mobile device, a range of companies are stepping up to offer tempered glass screen protectors to make sure your screen doesn't get scratched. These Switch Lite screen protectors will keep all 5.5-inches of your screen safe and sound.
'Dock' your Switch Lite
Well, sort of. Switch Lite does not dock to your TV, but it also doesn't come with a kickstand for handy tabletop play, either. However, there are options if you'd like the option of playing in tabletop mode (although you'll obviously need some extra wireless Joy-Con, too). Perhaps the ultimate solution to this is Hori's Switch Lite dual USB playstand which can also charge your device while you play in tabletop mode. A variety of cheaper alternatives are available, however.
Expand your Switch Lite storage
Switch Lite is all about portability and the last thing you want to do is be lugging around lots of pesky game carts with you it you're downsizing to travel lighter. So, if you plan on going digital with future game purchases, you're going to want to get a nice big micro SD card. SanDisk are our favourites for reliability and value. They come in a range of capacities in order to meet your budget.
These were our favourite picks to accessorise your Nintendo Switch Lite, but do drop us a comment below if there is anything else you've spotted which you consider essential and we'll take a look.
