Found 6th Dec
Just ordered a console for Xmas and was looking for a case.

Came across this for only £8.99 @ argos.

C&C and available Online.

Great price for an official Nintendo item.

Cheapest around seems to be around £15 - £20.

Hope it helps someone out there.

Happy Christmas!!

it was,, it was my deal. Price did go up so I had to expire it. Seems its gone back down but not as cheap as my old offer

Got it for 7.5£ close to black friday.
Its a nice case but I only use it on my backpack. Its not solid and when you press on it you can hear the analogs clicking lol

What about the edges? Do you think it can handle a knock?

Edges are reinforced so it can take a lateral hit and survive. The pocket on the inside is also cushioned.
Definitely worth the money as a soft case.
I won't use it to toss into a travel bag tho.

Thanks I’ve got that massive gioteck case at the moment which is great for taking it on long trips but have been looking for a smaller case for more general day use to just throw in my work bag

Can anyone recommend a good hard case? I have ordered this one but would like something that can handle travel.

I have just ordered a standard clear crystal case for mine to give it some protection - but it looks like from the reviews it may not fit in the dock afterwards.

Depends how often you will put in the dock though?

I have mine in a clear case and then use a usb c extension to connect it to the dock. I'd rather do this then keep taking it out of the case.

I was also paranoid about the dock scratching the switch (front and back) so this way I don't have to worry.

Here is a pic.

Great idea thanks. Will order one a USB-C extension cable. Cheers.

There is only one case that will dock on the switch thats the Nyko Slim but even that one is causing problems with docking.
Believe me Ive looked everywhere.In the meantime if you want a great case for handheld mode I am using this and its great,they do one a bit slimmer as well but this is best for protection.Now looking for a case that this will fit into LOL

I cant find anything similar for the switch. Which is a shame - because its a great case!

I dont see how you have that working there.Ive tried it with a usb to usb-c connector lead from my pro controller and I cant power the dock on.I assume you have the white lead connected to the dock internal usb?#

Thanks OP. Had a £5 voucher so got it for £3.99. Can’t go wrong with it as long as it offers some protection to put it in a backpack

It's a usb c extension cable. It plugs into the connector inside the dock, where the switch would connect when docked. It's a bit fiddly but works fine once connected.

I used cable clips to keep it in place.

Here is the cable I use:

Good deal but if you can wait for shipping ordering cases from china is often cheaper.

last time got it for 7.50 anyway thanks for sharing.

Yes it was, because I bought 1

The only one I can find is cheap as chips at £99.99, shame it’s home delivery only :-(

Game has a large premium case for a tenner until the end of the week. Available online too. I bought it and it's quite sturdy - also has space for games and accessories (except the pro controller). I posted a deal here several days back
