    I'll let the picture do the talking.
    Make: Onn (Walmart store brand)
    Model: ONA16TA004
    Description on packaging:. Universal Tablet Stand
    Cost: Roughly $8.00

    My thoughts: Well built and felt sturdy. The entire surface of the stand is covered with rubber touch material, and is matte is appearance. Folds compact and fits into the accessory pocket of my GameStop bought travel case for the Switch. Once unfolded, the part that holds the tablet/Switch is lined with thick cushioning rubber/silicone (not sure of exact material), holds the Switch firmly in place and stops right at the line where the glass surface meets the plastic casing of the Switch. It felt as if the thing itself is meant for the Switch. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

    The problem with that stand is that it doesn't angle the switch at all.

    In regards to angle, it does angle, though the angle is not adjustable. It's a good viewing angle for me, and by approximation, I would say it's about 60 degrees.

    That's cool, but it doesn't address charging while in tabletop mode.

    Since I'm at work right now, can't test on my idea of just drilling through the stand itself for a passthrough solution. As of right now, what I noticed is that if I slide the Switch so that the stand is gripping it on the left edge, it will hold just fine. The charging port is then open for it to be plugged in.

    I just use either of the Wii U gamepad stands (standard or the charging dock), that seems to work just great. I'd like to marge the charging dock (getting a second one first so I could still charge my Wii U gamepad in the charging stand), by removing the pass through port and snaking the USB-C cord through it. Seems simple enough, though I really question why such a thing doesn't already exist.

    But this is what it looks like:

    I don't own a Wii U, so didn't know about that option, but looks like it will work great too. I'm pretty sure they will sell better options in the days ahead, but as for me, it was something convenient and cheap. It sure beats the kickstand they included.

    It's a silicone grip from Wal-Mart as well, 7 bucks and it comes left and right cover and thumbsticks cover. It also adds some padded grip to the bottom of the joy-cons, which makes it more comfortable to grab.

    Like I said above, it's something I picked up while out shopping (convenience.) It was cheap and readily available. I will eventually get the Hori stand. Just making a post to add options for those looking.

    The kickstand does its job, I have no real issue with it. I only want a dock if it can be a charging dock. But since I have the Wii U gamepad docks, I'll use them anytime I want to use tabletop mode(which honestly isn't a mode I intend to use much anyway, unless I'm on a plane or something and the person I'm traveling with wants to play a video game with me. Otherwise I'll mostly be using the Console and Handheld modes.
