Planning on playing your Switch exclusively in handheld mode? You’ll definitely want to consider the Nintendo Switch Lite! At $200, it’s the more affordable Switch experience for sure, and the color options are fun and bright. Grab your Switch Lite from Best Buy, and you’ll also get a $20 gift card to use at the retailer.
If you compare the Nintendo Switch Lite with the standard Switch on paper, it doesn’t seem too great. However, having tried both, I can tell you that the Switch Lite provides a superior handheld experience. It feels a lot lighter, and when you’re holding up a console for what could be hours at a time, that’s a big advantage. While the Switch Lite’s battery life doesn’t quite beat out the new model of the standard Nintendo Switch, it still provides multiple hours of gameplay on a single battery charge, even with the more taxing games.
And let’s not forget about how nice they look! The bright colors are eye-catching, and it’s just a joy to look at. I love how the Coral one looks!
Of course, there haven’t been a ton of deals on the Nintendo Switch Lite in the US for the last year or so since there was a shortage. But, Best Buy has all four of the standard Switch Lite colors in stock, and when you grab one, you’ll get a $20 gift card for the retailer. Maybe you should spend that on a Nintendo Switch SD card!
