Welcome to a brand new feature highlighting some of the best and most interesting portable gaming gear on the market. We’ll be running this regularly from now on, and highlighting our fave products of the month. The very best will make it into our running accessory list.
We’re mostly about the games here on PG, but we recognise that in order to play those games you need to splash the cash on hardware. We already bring you recommendations on the best gaming smartphones at various price points, and we’ll always review any new handheld consoles as they appear.
But what about the other portion of the portable gaming hardware business? Those accessories and gadgets that enhance your experience? We’re talking about the cases, controllers, screen protectors, stands, styluses, and the like.
That’s what this piece is all about. If you’re after a cool new accessory for your iOS or Android device, Nintendo Switch, 3DS, or even Vita, watch this space for some ideas.
The Switch is great for the way you can take it out on the go, or hook it up to your TV via the dock. But what if you want to take it out with you and then hook it up to a TV somewhere else?
This adapter lets you do just that, providing all the necessary ports in a compact dongle format. As a bonus, there’s also an ethernet port on there for a physical internet connection.
Discrete smartphone gaming in public can be a bit of a bind from an audio perspective. iPhone users have got Apple’s super-discrete AirPods to turn to, but what about the Android crowd?
The Jabra Elite 65t is pretty much the best equivalent yet, with five hour battery life, easy connectivity, a pocketable charging case, and one-touch access to your voice assistant of choice.
