 NINTENDO SWITCH NEWS - UPCOMING

You'll finally be able to charge your Switch in tabletop mode with Nintendo's new stand

Overdue, but necessary

Product: Nintendo Switch | Manufacturer: Nintendo
 
I know, I know. If you've been a Switch user for a while now you'll probably remember feeling utterly confused at the design choice for a certain charging port. However, it looks like Ninty's addressing and fixing the problem at last with a brand new stand. 

If you're more of a dock or handheld player, this probably won't have affected you at any point, but the Switch's kickstand design for tabletop play is - er - stupid. Aside from its unsteady build, it also makes it impossible to charge the device when playing since the port is at the bottom of the console. 

While there have been attempts at making something like this from third-party manufacturers, it's nice to see Ninty pushing out an official version. 

From the looks of things it won't be a replacement for your dock as it's only got the charging port and no HDMI output, but it may be a solution to more than just the charging issue. 

Call me crazy, but one of the major reasons I don't use tabletop mode is because I can never get the right angle unless I'm sitting on the floor. Since this is an adjustable stand, it's possible it may allow you the freedom to position it however you like. At least, that's what I'm hoping for. 

The stand'll be launching on July 13th for $19.99

What do you guys think? Is this happy news for you? Let us know in those comments below.
