SIX Must-have Gaming Accessories for Mobile

As smartphones more and more indistinguishable from their specifications, a market of smartphone gaming has emerged. The mobile gaming industry hasn't been around for that long, but even within its short stay, we have seen it build a solid base standing on the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store. To support the popular games from these platforms, many manufacturers have made gaming-focused peripherals and accessories. These accessories promise a better gaming experience for these mobile gamers on the go and provide a competitive edge for the serious PUBG Mobile or Fortnite gamers. For the gamers who don't want to compromise, here are seven essential gaming accessories for the mobile gaming enthusiast out there.

IPEGA 9023 Telescopic Controller

Ever wanted a Nintendo Switch game controller but still, want the convenience of a phone? Well, there might be a solution for you. Telescopic game controllers are like cases that snap on to your smartphone and work as controllers. The IPEGA 9023 has two grips, two analog sticks, a D-Pad, and triggers. Quality with these controllers is hit-or-miss, but these are the best telescopic controllers in the market now. These are perfect for portable gaming sessions on the go. Price: Tk. 3,000/- appx.


Moga Pro Power Controller

Grip controllers feature the perfect crossover between functionality and portability. These are full-sized video game controllers which have a retractable grip in the middle which supports your phone. These controllers are a bit more expensive but the quality and convenience are worth the price bump. Moga Pro Power is the perfect controller for mobile gaming as it also has a 2200 mAh battery for charging up your smartphone. It also connects through Bluetooth, so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues with different Android smartphones. Price: Tk. 4,500/- appx.







VR Box Headset

For most people, VR seems like an inconvenience and luxury. But for serious VR gaming enthusiasts, the VR headset is indeed a great accessory to have. These headsets work as a vessel for your smartphone and rely on your smartphone's hardware for head-tracking and interactions. Plenty of games on the play store are compatible with VR. VR Box headsets are widely available in the market and offer great build quality within low-price. However, it only supports Cardboard VR ecosystem which should be enough to get anyone interested in mobile VR gaming. Price: Starting from Tk. 800/-


Bluedio T2s Bluetooth Headphone

No gaming setup is complete without a stylish set of headphones. Bluedio T2 is by far the best-looking headphone within its range. If your smartphone lacks a headphone jack, fret not. The Bluedio is a Bluetooth headphone, and also has a built-in mic for in-game voice chats. In case you run out of battery even with the massive 40-hour battery inside the headphone, you should still be able to use the headphones through the supplied 3.5mm cable. Price: Tk. 5,000/- appx.


Google Chromecast Ultra

The ultimate mobile gaming machine should be able to hook itself up with a television without any wires. The Switch has a dock to connect itself with a TV, but a Google Chromecast Ultra can stream games directly from your smartphone to a television. Only a handful of games support direct streaming through the Google Chromecast, but if you're okay with streaming your games to your TV at a lower resolution, the Chromecast Ultra also supports screen mirroring.  The cheaper basic model should work fine as well. Price: Tk. 6,500/- appx.


Aukey 20,000mAh Powerbank

The Achilles Heel for smartphone gaming is the battery. Flagship Android smartphones offer stellar performance and stunning visuals for games but their mediocre battery life holds them from being touted as the ultimate gaming device. Having a massive power bank with you should alleviate this issue, and Aukey's 20,000mAh power bank is the ultimate bang-for-buck Power bank. It also has a lightning port for charging Apple devices and a micro USB port for charging android smartphones. Price: Tk. 3,500/- appx.
