    If you've ever wanted to play your Nintendo Switch in tabletop mode while it charges, but have been held back by the unwieldy charging cable, fear not, as Nintendo will be releasing an official charging dock for the Switch. Called the Adjustable Charging Stand, it'll do as the name suggests, and be a dock for the Switch that can be tilted to different angles, letting players use the Switch in tabletop mode while still connected to the charger. You can plug the USB-C Switch charging cord into the stand, and then place the Switch on top. It'll retail on Nintendo's official online store for $19.99 on July 13.

    Hope this can be plugged into laptop and power on and work. If the usb can't work on laptop or some charge bank like anker, then I'm kinda upset.

    Yes! No more 3rd party brick stands. Will definitely be picking one of these up.

    20 bucks for something that should have been included with the switch in the first place? ew.

    It's basically a paid hardware patch for that crappy little stand thing.
    $20 for stability thank you very much - Ninty

    The whole point of this is to charge it while in stand mode. You cant use that with the switch if its on its stand

    Looks like apple's way
    do a bad design choice
    sell dongles to compensate

    I love my switch
    but they could have put a second type C port on the top

    If your electronics is good it wouldn't do shit
    Even with bad electronics, L ion batteries take what they need
    so even both usb would be parallel
    so you are just increasing the amps
    not the tension

    Putting the charge port on the bottom was just so ridiculous considering the system even has a built in kickstand.

    Now it makes sense, though.

    I'd say no thank you to this one! I already have a cheaper & better stand, with no chargeport, but tiltable stand with airvents & plenty room for the legal charging cable & adapter! Besides, I'm actually bad with such kinds of docks & chargeports, I can already see myself breaking something or nocking it & dropping it.o.o

    I've to say that they're quite late with this. If it had hdmi too, I would've considered getting it, though.
