The best Nintendo Switch cases

Transport your Nintendo Switch in style with these nifty cases

The Nintendo Switch is unlike other current-generation consoles. With both docked and portable modes, it’s easy to play at home or on the move. Because of the platform’s unique design and high potential for damage, you will definitely want to get a case if you plan on taking it out and about frequently.

There are two distinct kinds of Switch cases: A smaller, sleeker version that protects the base console and allows you to easily play it on the go, and another case meant for more serious transportation that includes enough space to transport the console, your dock, and any other accessories you might have.

Small cases

Orzly Carry Case

The snug design and hard plastic exterior of the Orzly Carry Case make it an excellent option for protecting your Switch, one that will easily fit in your purse or backpack. But if stashing your console in the bottom of your bag isn’t your thing, this case also has a handle that allows you to carry it like a briefcase.

The Orzly Carry Case includes a cushioned flap that can store eight game cartridges and further protect your screen from harm, as well as a mesh pouch in the upper section of the case for your smaller but still essential Switch accessories. It doesn’t have space to accommodate larger accessories, but if you’re just looking to bring your Switch along for your commute or to a local coffee shop, this case will likely fit the bill. It currently comes in black, blue, pink, and red.

AmazonBasics Vault Case

Smaller Nintendo Switch cases don’t have to sacrifice protection. The AmazonBasics Vault Case for Nintendo Switch looks like it could take an explosive blast from the outside, and on the inside, you’ll find a compartment to store your system with the Joy-Con controllers attached, and a flap inside has enough room for eight game cartridges.

The case snaps shut to keep everything secure, and there are corresponding cutouts for the buttons and sticks on the Switch so that they aren’t damaged if it happens to get dropped or bumped. AmazonBasics includes a one-year warranty, as well, should anything happen to it.

S-Charge Charging Case

The S-Charge, previously called the SwitchCharge, doesn’t offer the same enclosed protection as some of the other cases on our list but its built-in battery makes it perfect for gaming on the go. With about 10 hours of battery life, a robust stand, and built-in game card slots, you’ll be able to play your Switch for hours longer than you could on the console’s small, built-in battery.

As an added, bonus, the case can charge your cell phone via a USB port on the side, and a $120 bundle also packs in a traditional zipper-style case that can fit your Switch and the S-Charge at the same time.

Mumba Rugged Clear Case

If you want the protection of a full-fledged carrying case but need to play your Switch at a moment’s notice, Mumba’s Rugged Clear Case has you covered. It’s made of shock-absorbent materials and polycarbonate, and it’s designed to keep your console safe from drops you might encounter while playing.

The back also has a slip-proof surface to keep it from falling off a table if you set it down in a precarious situation, and it has a one-piece design so you don’t have to worry about it coming apart. Perhaps the best part, however, is that it makes your Switch look tough without adding a substantial amount of size.
