Evecase 5.6 x 5.6 x 3.5 inch Camera Bag.
Chose this after trying too long to find a 3DS bag that didn't have horrible straps. $16 with Prime

Anker USB 3.0 4* USB tap.
Obviously, you need to have more than 1 USB port to do much, like using a mouse with a usb drive.
$9 with Prime.

Cable Matters Mini HDMI male to HDMI Female cable 2 pack.
Minor shaving required. Not tested extensively.
$10 with Prime.

Lexar USB 3.0 Micro SD Card Reader
If you want to use a ferry card or temporarily pop your card of choice into a computer, one of these is incredibly helpful. Plus it's tiny. You can probably get one cheaper if you don't want the 32GB card included.
$33 with Prime.

Standard XBOne Controller.
Works without any need to mess with dongles on Windows 10. It'll even work with headphones/sets.
$35-$50ish, depending on color and luck.

Venom Xbox One Rechargeable Battery Twin Pack.
I don't recommend these in particular, but a rechargeable pack is a must if you don't want to guzzle batteries.
$17 with Prime.

Logitech Wireless Mouse M185.
Pretty reliable, but only has the standard 2 mouse buttons plus tilting and clicking mousewheel. Receiver stores inside nicely.
$13 with Prime.

Kid Icarus Folding 3DS Stand That I Had In A Box.
Needs a little rubber bumper to help secure the Win properly.
$10 with Prime.

Perrix Asymetrical Folding Keyboard.
This one might be tough to find, but it works amazingly. The weird fold system pushes the main hinge off to the side, so it is less likely to fold the moment you put it on your lap. It also completely hides the hinge when the keyboard is unfolded. A bit cramped, but the keys are properly clicky laptop keys.
For image and model reference

Anker PowerCore 26800 Portable Charger*
While looking for my power pack, I found this one. Seems to be a flat upgrade. 26800mAh with 3
4.8A output USB ports. Also has 2 micro usb inputs for double the charge speed?
$59.99 with Prime.

Other possible pack-ins.

Bluetooth Numpads.
If you're primarily going to be gaming, you might want to drop the full keyboard in favor of a bit of space plus one of these. Works nicely with a mouse if you rebind with HIDMacros. Also more tiny airport/college desk friendly. Example unit is $30

Similarly, you might want to try a half controller + mouse option using a device like the
Nintendo Joy-Con's left unit. Drivers are still being worked on though, so only get this if you're up for beta troubles.
$50ish, but you can get lucky on eBay.

SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive.
The one in all the Win lists I've seen, but I figured I'd list it here for convenience.
$45 with Prime.

All this stuff takes a total of 3 AAA (2 for the keyboard, 1 for the numpad) and 1 AA battery that will need replacing eventually. I hesitate to recommend rechargeable ones, as I have yet to find a micro charger for them.

Inateck USB 3.0 Ethernet + 3 USB 3.0 port adapter.
You might want to replace the 4 port one with one like this if you plan to do network maintenance, secure data transfer, or just plain download things quickly.

$20 with Prime.

PS4 Controller.
Some people prefer this to the XBOne one. It's lighter in the hand (and bag), comes with a built in rechargeable battery with absurd life, and has a touchpad with 4 physical buttons underneath. Can do some pretty crazy things with the touchpad via Steam's controller customization, but has weaker compatibility with non-Steam applications. Also works with PS4 Remote Play.
Worth noting that, unlike the ps3 controller, this can charge directly from any micro usb power supply. Headset support seems to require the official receiver dongle, sold separately.
Controller Alone: $40-60 Depending on color. Silver's cheapest.
Adapter Alone: $66
Controller + Adapter Bundle: $66

Budget 1 Handed Controller**
Hey, if you want to try 1/2 Controller + Mouse, why start off pricey?

Phew, that's about all I have on hand.

u/jamiegandolf · 1 pointr/gpdwin

It's a great machine. Only problem I've had is the forced updates from Microsoft that have kind of broken my automatic controller functionality in a lot of games. I've seen other issues, though they all seem to be repairable/reversible issues. This specific issue has made it difficult for some of my games to easily see there's a controller available.

I have a 128 GB Samsung Ultra Fit USB flash drive that sits in the back. It's very low key and not noticeable. It does make it difficult to move the screen back completely but the position it is in is just fine with me. There is also a common issue with the USB 3.0 port that makes it sometimes not readable but it just takes a little move and the system recognizes its in there. Just seems to be a cheaply made port, is all. It works most times and has never randomly disconnected on me. This just usually becomes a problem when I remove it and put it back in. Currently there doesn't seem to be anything this small to allow for portability and ease of putting in your pocket, etc. that's above 128 GB. I paid like $30 for it at a local store. That has all of my games on it with Skyrim being the only game I have installed on the internal memory.

In addition to that, I have a 64 GB Micro SD card that is in there and I've just started using it for anything extra I have. 256 GB Micro SD cards are pretty pricey at $150+ for a decent one that will work with your gaming needs.

If you truly stick to emulators, I think that 128 GB USB flash drive will be suffice for you for everything while helping you save money and allowing you time to save up for a 256 GB Micro SD card like I'm doing.

The GPD Win is pretty pricey on its own but you can get lucky if you don't mind getting one used. I got one in superb condition for $300 off eBay (the number 1 key doesn't work, but that's okay) as they are about $439 brand new starting and they take longer to ship because they come from China. I've also read some people having issues where customs opened their box thinking it was drugs. There are also people on this sub selling theirs, one guy today posted one asking $250 and saying it's brand new in the packaging. Doing that may help you save money to put towards an expensive, good SD card too.

u/Parzival8910 · 2 pointsr/gpdwin
  1. I don't know about PS2, but Dolphin can emulate GC AND Wii, and it seems really good, and I've seen it running well on GPD Win 2

  2. You could easily do that on a $250 laptop lol, but yes, the GPD can EASILY do all those things, and it has 8 GB ram so good for having multiple things up at once, for word processing, yeah, you'l probably need a Bluetooth keyboard (Yes Win 2 has built-in BT) and the screen is a bit small to see the words, but it should be fine because it still has good resolution. And yeah, you might want that USB hub because it only has 1 USB on the back. This was one I was looking at that I think would work great with the Win/Win 2

    Hope this helps
u/razzix · 2 pointsr/gpdwin

As others have said you can do this with a relatively small setup. There is a LOT to consider - HOW portable, HOW efficient, etc etc. Help me out if the below suggestions don' t meet the need I can piece together just about any system for you :P


You could get by on a small sealed lead acid battery designed for uninterruptible power supplies. They range in size but average 9 amp hours. I say get yourself a little 35 amp hour and never worry about discharge rate if you are only powering the win2 even if the sun don't shine that day. For the solar - buy BIGGER than you need - learned this the hard way with my truck camper. Right sized is great until the season changes or its overcast etc.


Check out this little starter kit - it includes the solar panel and charge controller:


Down in the frequently bought together you should see a 35ah battery - will fully charge the win2 a few times and not even feel it:


12v car charger that I use with the win2 - works great:



Plenty portable depending on your needs. Its almost as easy as color coding to setup. You can power the win2 and multiple devices if you so choose. Expandable at a later time if you choose with panel and batts. Will fit in any trunk or backseat. Hell it will fit in a big backpack (panel is 21x26). Large enough charge current to top off your battery quick even in partial sun - big enough reserve to keep you going for a couple days easily. This is just an example of an 'easy' bundle if you wanna save some more money I can show places to get these items cheaper.



If you wanna talk more DIY and are not afraid of LI-ION 18650s you can build you a safe lighter and denser battery for pretty cheap. It would be piecing together a charge controller and panel but I would say stick to 50w range - affordable and covers your power needs even in less than ideal conditions. If you wanna go more expensive but more portable flexible/foldable panels are out there too.



u/cokefudge · 1 pointr/gpdwin

Congrats! I have, not that exact case but basically a clone of it. its a great case.

If you happen to want a power bank that fits in the top compartment and actually works for the win 2 (its kinda picky in terms of what it accepts. PD support, 12V@minimum 1.5A)

This one is an option. Maybe you dont want one but in case you do, cause I had to browse around and fiddle with measuring tape to find one that both supports win2 and fits in there. save you some tedium of repeating what I did.

Edit: link

u/Psilli · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I have that exact same bag and, like NinjaFlee said, it's definitely capable of housing the WIN plus a few accessories.

However, since my collection is slowly expanding, I've outgrown that and have migrated to this bag. Has great space and amazing protection. Also, here's the post that I saw this bag listed on. Good reference if you're thinking about pursuing more stuff for the WIN later on.

u/Baconstrip01 · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

I use this:

I played Dark Souls 2 for like 4 hours on a flight with it, and my WIN was still at about 80%. Heavily intensive games do still drain power on the charger, but I still could have gotten a whole lot of time out of it.

Battery is perfect (though kinda big).

The WIN does get pretty hot when plugged in to the charger + gaming, but I didn't have any problems :)

u/lskennedy · 2 pointsr/gpdwin


I actually loaded up with accessories right out the bat, and most were from amazon.

They are:

A usb 3.0 hub

Bluetooth Mini Keyboard

Bluetooth Mouse

Amazon Basics 11.6'' laptop bag

I did also order a mini HDMI to full size HDMI cable from Gearbest for like, $2, but it's pretty shit. I'd suggest getting one though.

Now, this was all calculated. I travel a lot, either for work or for leisure, and this device was just perfect for it.

I wanted to get a case that can hold everything, but take up a small footprint. The case is just wide enough to hold the keyboard, the middle pouch can hold the Splitter, the Mouse and either the GPD in their if you want, or with the keyboard.

It all fits very well, and the only thing I haven't tried is the hub, but I'm sure that'll work.

I plan to get a folding headset for the go as well, and have a usb splitter for Mic and Headset, so I can hopefully get some CSGO action using the hotel tv when I'm away!

That said, the mouse I got can go from incredibly responsive to having just a small delay. It's fine for using for the web and what not, but I'd probably suggest a different mouse, or just a wired one if using the hub. (for portable and not frequent use, the reviews for this one are very good!)

Hope that helped!

u/shinkamui · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I personally have been using this in my win since November last year. 456gigs total external storage (200sandisk + 256samsung). Sticks out approx 3mm further than the shoulder buttons. Smallest form factor option for max storage.

If you need max speed the lexar S45 or the samsung fit are the two recommended nano usb drives but max out at 128gig.

Hopefully that's useful and lets not speak of this ugliness again. :)

u/Logim123 · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I bought that:

It works surprisingly well. Installation was very easy, it covers 95% of the panel, it's clear, prevents smudges and fingerprints and looks sturdy enough to actually protect the screen. I'm happy.

u/idontspeakijustwatch · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I've been looking for a good USB hub that won't have trouble hanging off the back of a Win 2. I have four of those 128GB ultra fit flash drives. I did buy one of these but it heated up almost inhumanly quickly, burning my fingers after about one minute of being plugged in, so I just threw it out. If anyone finds a good USB hub that can hold 4 drives and hang off the back of the Win without issue, let me know.

u/zeagar · 2 pointsr/gpdwin

Lets add the first car charger to the list. PD 12v up to 3a by Nektek.

Tested today. Is able to charge while playing Hand of Fate 2, but only gained about 4% in 40 minutes.

Set power settings to best performance, backlight at 50%, turned of sleep mode, and charged on the desktop for an hour and it charged about 23%

Did not test charging while in sleep or turned off, but it should charge pretty quickly.

u/Tefitef · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I have this 128gb samsung 3.0

the curve of the stick fits PERFECTLY the GPD Win... just wish it would be black
here's a photo of my GPD Win with the samsung key

u/petsnsac · 1 pointr/gpdwin

i hope so i just purchased this;

and even though it is on the supported list of car adapters it does not work for the win 2. Im returning it to amazon in 2 hours.

u/HGwells628 · 2 pointsr/gpdwin

The Samsung Fit Drive doesn't get hot unless it's under heavy load, unlike the other options in the same form factor. Micro SD cards are another matter though. Like others have said, the one on the WIN reads slowly, and goes to sleep when it doesn't think it's being used, so you'll want to use a program that keeps it awake if you want to store games on it or something. It will decrease your card's lifetime a little though.

This is a great solution, especially because there are no tiny 256 GB USB drives yet, the only ones are pretty big. This way you can have 256GB in a small package.

That reader supports USB 3 so you'll be able to utilize the card's full speed (as opposed to the Win's internal reader).

u/the_importer007 · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

I bought this:

A bit too big for your pocket, but fits well in a backpack. I can put my GPD Win 2, the charger and cable, a tiny 4TB Ext HDD with USB 3 cables, a cleaning cloth. You could also have room for extra Micro SD cards that you could put into SD card adapters and then into the 3DS game card storage areas.

u/Fenrir1536 · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I picked up an ADATA 256 drive for like 85 bucks on amazon a few months ago and haven't had any problems with it. Its sold out now but if they come up again I would definitely recommend it.

u/quanzi1507 · 2 pointsr/gpdwin

You can get something like this and pair it with a 256GB microSD card. While it's not that low profile, it's still the closest thing to a "low-profile flash drive that's more than 128 GB". Has pretty good reviews too.

u/unixcorn · 1 pointr/gpdwin

thought i'd mention this if you're looking for a usb 3.0 "fit" style flash drive and haven't bought one yet, on nov 9 amazon will have the new pny elite-x fit 128 gb in stock. posted specs are better than both the samsung and the sandisk. may be worth the wait.

u/TheMrG · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I went with 128 GB Sandisk Card on amazon, and a really small 128 GB Samsung USB

What Mr.Kogashiwakai said about the case is very true. I got one for free with my Win, but it is so small. It fits all I need, but no more. Some of those DS cases have like 10 pockets so I'd check that out.

u/Pavon123 · 1 pointr/gpdwin

About 3-3 and a half hours, depending on the game and the screen brightness.

Get a 2.4A portable charger for long flights/commutes, it works surprisingly well, and even slowly charges while gaming.

I got this one, works really well:

u/ChrisTheCoolBean · 1 pointr/gpdwin

Actually, this one was recommended on that page:

Thoughts? Think it's worth it? It's cheaper with a low profile, but will it be good on the GPD?

u/LazyBunnyKiera · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I ordered an Adata 256GB from ebay (US seller).
Here's some on amazon though. This is the same model as what i ordered. It does have DRAM cache which was pretty important to me.

u/Jarlek · 5 pointsr/gpdwin

I did a bit of research on this. The two main competitors for the low profile USB 3.0 usb sticks are the Lexar S45:

And the SanDisk Ultra Fit:

They are similar in price (around 30 dollars). I went with the Lexar because it seemed to be slightly faster in head to head benchmarks and the profile of it is flat. The primary downside when I got it is that it has a VERY bright blue LED that flashes with activity. However, I simply put some electrical tape over it and it almost entirely blocks it.

For SDCards, it seems the fastest performers are the Samsung EVO Plus:

It has the fastest read speed at 80 MB/sec, which is still quite a bit slower than the USB which I usually benchmark at around 150 MB/Sec max, and the internal memory is faster than both, and much better read speed (so prioritize putting games etc that have longer loading times or require writing in the internal memory).

u/Spotted_Owl · 1 pointr/gpdwin

Never had an issue. I got a 128 SanDisk UltraFit (this one:

I also disabled letting Windows put my USBs to sleep in Device Manager.

Hit Start

Type in Device Manager

Go to Universal Serial Bus Controllers

Right click USB Mass Storage Device

Uncheck the box next to Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power

u/mrblinc22 · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I purchased USB Drive, Micro SD, Keyboard, Mouse, USB 3.0 HUB, and Case to fit everything into.

u/ColorblindMonk · 5 pointsr/gpdwin

Whatever you do, don't get the Ultra Fit drive from SanDisk. I've got a 128GB model, and even on idle, the thing gets hot. Like, stupid hot.

u/boodled · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I like my Samsung Fit, it's been reliable and fits well. When I tried this version of the Sandisk Ultrafit 128, I had trouble with it spontaneously unmounting itself. Possibly because it was physically running into the lid, or maybe I just received a bad drive. Maybe the newer plastic model is better though

u/BillyBruiser · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

My recommendation is to skip the sd card and use one of the high capacity tiny usb drives. The sd card is very slow. I have the 200 gb one and I took it out because it was just so painfully slow.

I use this one

The downside is having the little nub stick out the back, but it all fits in the zip up carrying case.
