The Nintendo Switch is a console that begs for accessories to be used with it. Among the most essential of these would have to be a wireless controller and a carrying case for travel. Luckily, the fine people at Ematic have just these accessories ready to go for any avid Switch user. The Ematic Nintendo Switch Carrying Case comes is simple and efficient and comes with enough space to store your console and up to eight different games. The Wireless Controller that Ematic makes a great addition to the Switch console with a price point that anyone can access easily. For just under $30 you can grab both of these accessories. Now, I won’t grade these on a traditional number scale, but I will go over the ups and downs of each accessory and then recommend them to use based on my personal use.
First off, let’s talk about the Ematic Carrying Case for the Nintendo Switch. A carrying case typically isn’t anything special, it did ship with a screen protector for the Switch, which was nice. Inside the case there is room enough for the console, probably some Joy-Con straps and then eight additional games. The sleeves that are for the games hold them tightly enough that after being knocked around in a car for hours, they stayed in place. Unfortunately this case wasn’t big enough to hold a typical charger. If you just wanted to carry is USB-C cord around it would fit though. The Switch itself fits snug in the case with two straps that hold it in place. This allows the player to play the Switch while it is in the case if they wanted to. The straps were a little inconvenient when trying to get the Switch out of the case though. Overall, after taking the Switch on a week-long vacation to Missouri, the case kept everything in order and even protected the Switch from any damages.
Having a wireless controller for the Nintendo Switch is a smart move as it gives you a break from having to use the Joy-Con controllers, which can get uncomfortable if you have large hands. The Ematic wireless controller is your typical third party controller, which means there aren’t many stand out benefits from the controller. If I had to call out a couple things, I would say that the lightweight frame is nice but at the same time it feels like it could break easily if it was dropped (and yes I know, so can a lot of things). The controller only runs about $19.99 so it is an extremely easy way for someone who doesn’t have $70 to shell out for a first party controller to start building their accessories up for the system. As far as connectivity, I did experience some lag between inputs and responses on the screen. Games I tested with the controller include, Tetris 99, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and Super Mario Odyssey. The battery life was solid, considering I’ve only had to charge it a few times. Of course this will depend on your usage but still a positive.
All in all I can say that whether you get one or both of these accessories, you will be happy with the outcome. They are both relatively inexpensive and quality products for what you are paying for. The case fits the system comfortably while holding up to eight extra games. The case offers some solid protection in case you are traveling with your Nintendo Switch. The Ematic Wireless Switch Controller isn’t anything to write home about, but I was satisfied with what I was able to do with it. It will definitely save you if you absolutely need an extra controller with which to play either by yourself or with your friends. I highly recommend you check these products out for yourself if you’re looking to bolster your Nintendo Switch accessory count.
