With the Nintendo Switch, the acclaimed game makers have successfully managed to blur the lines between console gaming and gaming-on-the-go. Aside from the quality graphics and individual controllers aka Joy-Cons, the best thing about the Nintendo Switch is perhaps its portability. You can just toss it in your bag and carry it to your local cafe. However, before you do that, it's best to wrap up the Switch in a sturdy case lest that awesome display ends up getting scratched.
In this post today, we will be exploring seven different Nintendo Switch cases. The best thing about these cases is that you can find them easily on Amazon.
The RLSOCO carry case lets you carry all your Switch accessories. It has various compartments to fit all the accessories such as Switch docks, Joy Con grips, cords, etc. The internal separators of this case can't be moved and your components will fit firmly inside. Also, the hard external shell ensures that everything inside stays in top-notch condition. RLSOCO also bundles a small case to pack your Switch console separately.
You can either carry this case as a suitcase or strap it across like a sling bag.
If you are looking for a bag which is a bit toned-down, the Hestia Goods Switch carrying case is your best option. It is rigid and small compared to the RLSOCO case. The makers have utilized the space very well. The case lets you carry most of your Switch essentials like the two Joy-Cons and cables along with the main tablet. It comes with velcro strips that strap the tablet to the lower bottom. And the zipped pocket can accommodate two extra Joy-Cons and a few cables. Also, the screen of the tablet is kept protected through the soft fabric of the cardholder.
In a nutshell, the Hestia Goods case is great for carrying your Switch when you just have to transport just the necessary accessories.
The UGREEN carrying case is the perfect middle ground between a full-fledged carrying case and a slim carrying case. The inner layer is fitted with foam cutouts to hold the Switch accessories. The thick foam borders give the tablet and all the other accessories an extra cushion while keeping them safe in transit. If you are a sucker for keeping everything organized, this case is your best bet.
The ButterFox case for the Nintendo Switch shares a similar design to the Hestia Goods case. It has the same two-compartment design where the bottom one is reserved for the tablet and the upper compartment houses the accessories. The zipped compartment is big enough to house extra Joy-Cons, travel charger and headphones. However, instead of zipper heads, this case has a unique metal ring to pull the zipper. So, you may want to be careful before stuffing the zipped compartment lest the ring scratches the controllers. Also, this controller can't fit Pro Controllers.
The only issue with the ButterFox case is its smell. As per a few users, the case smells of old tires which can be overwhelming. So if you are someone who's sensitive to strong smells, you may want to think twice before ordering this case.
Want a case that wraps around your console? The Tomtoc slim case is both slim and robust. Also, the top of the case carries the shape of the controller's (analog) stick. This case has just enough room for the tablet, Joy-Cons, and game cartridges. When it comes to the fitting, as per the folks at The Wirecutter, this case fits the Switch like a glove and doesn't appear to be bulky.
Orzly Carry Case is Amazon’s choice for the best Nintendo Switch carry case, with more than two thousand customer reviews. It's compact and functional. The case has a standard two compartment design, but the upper meshed compartment doesn't have a zip. The mesh pocket covers around 3/4th area of the top chamber. Though it accommodates most of the essential accessories, it can't fit the larger ones. As far as the build is concerned, the outer shell is hard, whereas the inner shell is soft.
Also, the cushioned flap is meant to protect the screen from scratches and it also doubles up as the game cartridges holder.
Note: The Mesh pocket isn't large enough to hold the standard Nintendo AC Adapter, so you may want to consider that before you invest in this case.
Looking at the design, you may think that the FYoung case is just like any other case. However, what makes it different from the rest is its unique 8000 mAh battery fitted inside, which makes it convenient to charge the Switch. It comes with two cables — a USB-C cable and a Micro USB cable. Besides that, this case can house up to 8 cards and comes with a zippered slot. Also, a strap holds the tablet in place.
