Console wars between companies are one thing. But choosing which next-gen Xbox to get your hands on is another. And when it comes to perfecting your gaming set-up, getting your gaming accessories right can be just as difficult. So, in the spirit of empowering gamers, we’ve made it easy for you.

Whether you’re playing on the fastest, most powerful Xbox yet (Xbox Series X)or the smallest, sleekest one (Xbox Series S),we’ve made our gaming accessories compatible for both.

Before you team up with Master Chief to take on the Banished or start speeding through the streets of Mexico in Forza Horizon 5, you need to get your gaming accessories in gear. In our quick guide to Xbox Series X and S gaming accessories, we’ll tell you what they are and why you need them.

How do I keep my controllers charged?

Getting the easy one’s out the way first, we like it. You’ll want to pick up our drop and charge twin docking stations in black, blue, red, and white.

Gaming solo? How about our single Xbox docking stations in white and black, instead?

Why do I need a Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S docking station?

Unlike a pair of socks at Christmas, wireless controllers are the gaming gift that keeps on giving. You can game wherever you like in your room, and you don’t need to worry about pulling your console halfway across the room when you rage quit on FIFA.

Unfortunately, it means you’ll need to keep an eye on your controllers. With our docking stations, you’ll never have to worry about missing out. Simply drop in your controller and you’ll be back up and running in no time.

What features do Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S docking stations have?

We see our docking stations like we see unlockable content on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – the more you explore, the more rewards you get. Here’s the key features you need to know:

  • Fast efficient charging with x2 powerful 850mAh rechargeable battery packs        
  • Drop and go design removes the need to connect fiddly wires

Our Universal Gaming Storage Tower is the one-stop shop for all your gaming needs. You can store up to 4 controllers by hanging them on either side of the tower. And there’s even space for up to 10 games and 2 headsets. What more could you ask for? Well, maybe a sequel to Half-Life 2, but you can’t have everything you wish for.

Why do I need a universal gaming storage tower?

Us gamers get a bad rap from society sometimes. But in the age of streaming, style is everything. Our storage tower for Xbox Series X and Series S offers minimal mess and maximum cool, designed to slip into any space.

Not only does our universal gaming storage tower save space, but it’ll also keep your controllers off the floor and away from your pets.Nobody wants to play Call of Duty covered in cat hair, right?
