Samsung EVO+ 256GB microSD card
The LG G6 offers storage expansion up to 2TB via microSD. While a 2TB microSD card doesn't yet exist, it's good to know that this phone is virtually future-proof when it comes to storage.
For now, your best bet for expanding your phone's storage is Samsung's 256GB EVO+ microSD card. Featuring read speeds of up to 95MB/sec and write speeds up to 90MB/sec, this card is plenty fast enough to handle storing all the photos and videos you take with your G6, while also letting you load up all your favorite media so you have your favorite music and movies with you on the go.
At over $150, it might be too pricey for some, and that's ok. Check out our other MicroSD card recommendations for your Android phone.
Anker Micro-USB to USB-C adapter (2-pack)
If the LG G6 is your first Android phone that relies on USB-C charging cables, chances are you've got a stockpile of Micro-USB cables laying around that are about to become fairly obsolete. If you want to be able to use your old Micro-USB cables with the G6, you'll want to pick up this two-pack of Anker adapters. They're cheap and will get the job done, especially if you've got chargers or devices that have integrated cables you can't easily swap out. Get two adapters for just $7 on Amazon.
Anker PowerPort Qi 10 Wireless Charging Pad
The U.S. variant of the LG G6 is the only model that supports Qi wireless charging. If you want to take advantage of this exclusive feature, you'll need a wireless charging pad.
The Anker PowerPort Qi 10 wireless charging pad is your best bet. It's simple to use with a premium design that features breathing LEDs to indicate your devices' charging status. The non-slip pad keeps your phone secure while your phone takes advantage of Fast Charge Mode, which delivers 10W charging to your LG G6. All this comes with the advanced safety features you demand to ensure your phone doesn't overheat and is protected from short-circuits and electrical surges.
You will need to supply your own wall charger, (of course, Anker recommends their own for guaranteed compatibility) but if you've got a couple spares already kicking around they should work just fine. Best of all is the price — at only $20 it's a great value!
Dretal Desktop Charging Dock
Looking to incorporate your phone into your workspace set up while simultaneously keeping it fully charged when it's time to go? You need a desktop charging dock.
This charging dock from Dretal will keep your LG G6 topped up and propped up, helping to eliminate stray cables on your workspace and declutter your desk. The dock lets you watch videos or control your music while providing a good viewing angle for keeping tabs on any incoming calls or messages as you work. Also works great as a nightstand charger.
The design makes it incompatible with most cases, but it will work with slim cases like the Spigen Thin Fit. Simply pop it onto the USB-C connector at the base and you're good to go. It's available in five different color options, so you can pick one to match your phone or your desk color scheme for just $16.

Update August 2017: Updated product links and descriptions. These are still the best accessories for your LG G6!
How about that extra battery and travel charger pack that they had for their previous models? Oh wait....
Welcome to 2010, when devices don't have removable batteries anymore because it cheapens them.
Supcase makes great rugged, economical cases with convenient holsters for those who would rather not just shove their phone in their pocket, and then cry about scratched screens and bent bodies. Lol.
Best accessory...an S8?
WTF is sync-eu.exe.bid, and why is your site accessing it? Malwarebytes keeps warning me about it. I can block it by turning on ad blocking. If you don't like ad blocking, maybe you shouldn't be hosting ads that link to malware. Never mind, I found out it's a false positive fixed in the latest update to malwarebytes data. Sorry, but any attempt at anything with .exe in it sounds very suspicious to me, even if it's followed by .bid.
+1 for Spiegen Rugged Armor case and their tempered glass. For the memory card I went with a UHS-II card from Lexar with 250+ MB/s read/write.
Are cell phone holsters still a thing?
I still use one.
