So you've secured a sweet Legion Go gaming handheld for yourself or a loved one. This device is very impressive, but there are some things you can do to improve your experience with it. For one thing, you can ensure you have the very best Legion Go accessories to make gameplay more convenient. 

I've identified the best Legion Go peripherals currently available. Of course, considering this handheld doesn't have a long battery life, you might also want to check out my list of the best Legion Go power banks

Whether you like using your Legion Go at home on your couch, lying in bed, or while on a trip, the experience can be even better if you have the right accessories. You can't just go with anything you find, though. Any peripherals you want to buy need to match the Legion Go's dimensions, wattage needs, or other aspects. 

I was impressed by the Legion Go as you can see in my Legion Go review, but there are definitely ways to improve the playing experience if you get the best peripherals for it. The most important accessory of everything on this list is the dbrand screen protector. After all, what really sets the Legion Go apart from competitor gaming handhelds is its large, impressive screen. As such, you should take measures to protect it, and one of the very best options out there is the DBrand Legion Go Tempered Screen Protector. There are two screen protectors in each purchase and these are durable tempered glass to really shield your Legion Go's screen from damage. What's more a helpful squeegee is included to make it easier to remove bubbles until the glass looks absolutely perfect on your handheld. 

Another extremely useful accessory is the iVANKY Docking Station. Connecting your Legion Go to this dock allows it to display your favorite adventures on a monitor or TV while it receives a charge so you can play for a long time. It's worth noting that many docking stations' built-in USB-C cables aren't long enough to plug into the Legion Go, so getting the JSAUX 180 Degree USB-C adapters can help with this. 

Now, the Legion Go comes with either 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage built into it, depending on what version you buy. However, depending on how often you game, you can run out of space quickly. To prevent the tedious need for deleting, archiving, or otherwise rearranging saved data, you'll want to invest in a trusted microSD card. I recommend the SanDisk Extreme 512GB or 1TB cards, which are very fast and allow your games to run smoothly. 

Finally, it's unfortunate that the Legion Go doesn't have the best battery life. As such, you'll want to provide a compatible way of supplying power to it if you're away from an outlet. The power bank I trust the most is the Anker 747. It offers 87W output with a high 25,600 mAh capacity so that you can charge the device a few times.
