Nintendo is bringing out an official adjustable charging stand for the Nintendo Switch. As any owner of a Switch will tell you, when you use the system in tabletop mode with the kickstand, the charging port for the Switch is inaccessible. While third parties have already released stands to fix this problem, Nintendo is getting into the mix with its own solution.
The new stand has a USB-C prong that fits into the Switch’s power slot. Users can then hook up the AC Adapter to a port on the side and keep the Switch charging while playing. This will especially come in handy when playing on a plane with the tray down or even while putting together some of the Nintendo Labo projects. The stand will retail for $19.99 and comes out on July 13.
Launching on July 13 at a suggested retail price of $19.99, a new adjustable charging stand for the Nintendo Switch system makes playing in Tabletop mode easier than ever. With a handy port for an AC adapter on the side, the adjustable charging stand allows the Nintendo Switch system to be charging while in Tabletop mode, enabling longer play sessions.
The angle of the stand can also be adjusted to create the best viewing angle for different environments.
Nintendo Switch can be played in three modes: TV mode, Handheld mode and Tabletop mode. Tabletop mode lets players set up the Nintendo Switch system to play games on the go without the need for a TV. The compact and sturdy stand will work with any flat surface, like a tray table on an airplane or a dorm room desk. While not required, the adjustable charging stand makes playing in Tabletop mode more convenient.
