Not all essential VR accessories are high tech. Having a couple gentle microfiber cloths around is key to keeping the headset lenses clear of dust and sweat. Buy in bulk and never be without one.

Samsung always does a good job of including expandable storage with its flagships. Some extra storage is great no matter which Samsung phone or Gear VR headset you're using. Samsung just happens to offer the best value for microSD.

Samsung recommends that you only use Samsung charging accessories with the Gear VR, so that's what we'll recommend. It's always good to have an extra5V/2A wall adapter handy and you can use the included cable here with the Gear VR's USB-C adapter, or supply your own USB-C cable.
