Pro controller expensive sia. I bought the 8bitdo SN30pro+ for like 55 bucks. It's a 3rd party controller but it's got a lot of positive reviews and is generally considered the best 3rd party controller. I have been using it and it's really solid and has extra functions like being able to remap buttons and turbo and more. You can check it out if you want

3rd party knockoff Nintendo controllers can be gotten for ard $30.

Same shape and size, but without HD rumble and wake from sleep capability. The buttons seem lower quality but it's so much better than using the joycons ergonomically tbh.

I personally purchased the Pro controller. Wanted it for the full experience of HD rumble plus convenience of sleep to wake. Is it worth the extra $50? Maybe not

I also bought mine recently at GameXtreme with CapitalMall vouchers, in the end only paid $64.

Nothing beats the Pro Controller for Switch. Not only have HD rumble and wake features, the batt life is also around 40hrs, though a full charge could take up to 6hrs. Most 3rd party ones usually do not have that kind of batt life.

I don't think I'm able to share the links here as some people will report and it's infractable I think, even though I'm not affiliated with the seller.
I PMed you the seller I usually buy from.

The price usually varies but now it's 62 sgd for $50 credits. You can use singtel dash on mondays to get 5 off 50 to make it $57.

I'm using that Anker 20100 mAh Switch powerbank and usage wise is good. Only problem I have is that the powerbank does not hold charge as long as others. I can fully charge it and after a week or so of inactivity, it drains to low or even completely drained out.

I brought it to Anker and left it there for a few days but weirdly they told me no issue (not sure if they do not want to honour an exchange) so I just left it as it is. Overall still a very good powerbank and the PD is awesome.

It's because now I mainly play on my TV, that's why I bought it. Previously using the Joy-Con controller grip but a dedicated controller is much better to use.
