For so many players video games are about kicking back, relaxing, and having a good time. When it comes to getting the most out of our games and consoles, it isn’t just about what we play—but also how we play. Take a look at this lineup of Insignia gaming accessories that can assist in helping to create the best gaming experiences.
Charge it up
In the age of wireless controllers and devices, one of the biggest issues following gamers around is battery life. It used to be that we could simply plug our controllers into our consoles and go. There were no worries about keeping our gamepads and peripherals juiced up and ready to perform.
Today we’ve largely lost the tether, entering the age of wireless gamepad freedom. That amenity comes at a cost however, and we must always be conscious of having batteries on hand or plugging in our controllers after use. Luckily there are a number of Insignia gaming accessories that are making this process much easier.
Nintendo Switch Power Cords and Chargers
First up we have my personal favourite among Insignia gaming accessories with the Insignia Charge Station for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, which I use on a daily basis. This charge station holds and charges up to four Joy-Con controllers simultaneously. It’s an absolutely indispensable solution for someone like myself who owns multiple pairs of Joy-Cons.
Not only does it ensure you always have a pair to play with, it becomes extremely useful for multiplayer situations as well. If you have a group of family or friends eager to play a party or racing title, having multiple Joy-Cons at the ready without having to scramble is fantastic. Not to mention its appealing and space-saving design.
If charging Joy-Cons isn’t enough however, this device has another trick up its sleeve. It also has an additional USB port for charging your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller as well—complete with a very handy USB-C cable!
Also available is the Insignia Power Pack for Switch. This accessory boasts a lengthy 6.5′ USB A to USB C cable, making it easy to play and charge. It also comes with a wall charge adapter as well as a car charge adapter. The latter is perfect for keeping your Nintendo Switch going on those long road trips.
Nintendo 3DS XL chargers
Keeping within the realm of Nintendo, we also have a handy solution for your handheld-only device among the family of Insignia gaming accessories. The Insignia Charging Station for 3DS XL has your favourite Nintendo handheld in mind. It’s compatible with both the original Nintendo 3DS XL and the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
This charger features a wall plug adapter along with a handy charging cradle. Rather than fuss with plugging the charger into the console, players simply rest the 3DS XL on the cradle in an upright position. It’s not only a quick and easy way to charge, it also puts your Nintendo 3DS on display. This is particularly great if you have a fancy or limited model that you want to show off.
Xbox One Chargers
There are also multiple options when it comes to Insignia gaming accessories for charging with Xbox One. Firstly the Insignia Battery Charging Station for Xbox One S offers an integrated charging solution specifically for that model. It features a perfectly-shaped USB hub that connects to the left side of the console.
Once connected, it opens up a USB port (accounting for the one it takes up in connecting) along with a dock containing two rechargable battery packs. These packs fit any standard Xbox One Wireless controller. So no more burning through AA batteries—this handy charging station will keep its battery packs ready when you aren’t playing.
Of course if you need a solution for any model of Xbox One, try the Insignia Charge & Play Kit for Xbox One. This option forgoes the dock and simply provides a rechargable battery pack along with USB charging cable. It provides the same AA-shedding benefits with the additional option of being able to play while charging, since the battery pack charges while in the controller.
PlayStation 4 charging cables
Not to be left out, Insignia covers PlayStation 4 gamers as well. The Insignia 3m Charge-and-Play USBA/ Micro USB Cable is a nice option for your DualShock 4 controllers. Coming in at a lengthy ten feet, this cable makes it easy to charge and play, even if your console is fairly far away from your seat.
Other Insignia gaming accessories
Many of Insignia’s products revolve around charging your gaming devices. However, they do have a few other handy accessories. Here are a couple options that Nintendo Switch owners may find particularly useful.
The Insignia Go Case for Switch is excellent for protecting your console in transit. It offers a moulded interior for a perfect fit, along with additional pockets for games and accessories. A great case such as this is a must-have accessory for Nintendo Switch players on the go.
Last but certainly not least is the Insignia Dock Kit for Nintendo Switch. Switch owners know that the console plays wonderfully on the big screen in docked mode. This dock kit can replaced a lost or damaged dock, or even give players the option of setting up their Nintendo Switch on an additional TV in their homes.
Some Switch gamers may even like owning an additional dock for travel. It’s handy to have one to pack along without having to disconnect your primary Switch dock. And of course it charges your console as well, even when playing.
Insignia gaming accessories keep the fun going
Insignia offers a vast array of options to keep your controllers and console charged and ready, along with a few other handy accessories as well. Getting the most out of your video games means never having to wait on a dead battery or lack of charging ports. With solutions like these, players can focus on what’s important—playing games!
