JSAUX Advanced Dock and Protective Shell for the SteamDeck | Review

The SteamDeck might be my favorite electronic gadget, off-the-shelf device I have purchased, possibly ever. The newness has long worn off but the amount of use has maintained or perhaps expanded as it has moved into the home theater arena as well.

One drawback of being a fairly early adopter of the Steam Deck was the lack of accessories, things like docks and cases were not available so my SteamDeck largely stayed in its travel case if I was not immediately using it. I wanted to avoid any sort of tragic end to the delightful handheld machine.

A few months into owning it, a company called JSAUX offered some SteamDeck accessories, specifically a protective shell and their Dock Station, the upgraded variety with USB 3. Together they were a reasonable cost but the problem came when I could not set the SteamDeck in the docking slot whilst it donned the protective shell. It begged the question, “Can I have a protective case and a convenient docking at the same time.”

The answer to that question is, “yes” but it didn’t happen right away. I just received an improved case to work with the Upgraded Dock Station and I am very happy with the results. The following two accessories go well together and make for a great mobile and “home base” unit setup. I need a case because of my proclivity to carelessly dropping things and the dock station makes for a great place for the SteamDeck to return to that it can be used on a larger screen while charging.

This is not a sponsored blathering, this is my own sincere opinion. Good work should be praised and I absolutely give JSAUX a hardy pat on the back for a well design set of accessories.
