One of the best things about the Nintendo Switch is that you can take it anywhere. The popular portable gaming console is sleek and seems like a giant leap forward for Nintendo. On the other hand, the Nintendo Switch dock feels clunky and isn’t nearly as flexible as the console it supports.

Luckily, you can replace the Switch dock with a more modern take that expands how easily you can game on the go. This 3-in-1 Nintendo Switch Docking Station can connect all your Switch’s cables to one hub that extends what screens you can game on. Plus, it only costs $19.99 (regularly $24) for a limited time.

Some of the best gaming accessories aren’t made by the console manufacturers themselves. For example, the original Nintendo Game Boy had a tiny screen that was practically invisible in low lighting. So STD Entertainment made the Handy Boy, a Game Boy accessory that added a magnifying glass, speakers and extra light.

Plus, people have been making new skins and shells for portable consoles for years. So, if you want to customize your Switch to suit your needs a bit better, the 3-in-1 Switch Docking Station is a great way to do it.

Why ditch the official Nintendo Switch dock?

Since the moment the Switch came out, gamers have been trying to ditch the dock. This lightweight replacement offers a simple design — and does the job masterfully.

On one end is a USB-C output. On the other you get HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB-C ports. Instead of carrying around your Switch’s clunky dock, just bring this handy accessory. Plug it into your Switch, and suddenly, you can play on virtually any screen. This dock is compatible with most HDTVs, monitors and other devices with HDMI ports. The dock supports video resolutions up to 4K, so you can still play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in HD.

And when you need a break from gaming, there’s still more you can do. Connect to your iPhone for an easy HDMI adapter. Alternatively, connect it to your iPad if you want to use a wireless keyboard with a dongle.
