There are a ton of different stands that you can use with your Nintendo Switch, and which one you are using isn't even the most important part. Whether you want to build one out of LEGO pieces you have around the house or take the easy way and just buy one, the key here is trying one out.

The Nintendo Switch has a way of transforming your five-minute gaming session into one that lasts for hours, so why not ensure that you are comfortable while playing. Accessories like the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller give you an alternate way to experience the game, but there is nothing worse than reaching the hardest part of the level only to have your Switch slide to a flat position because it was just propped up against a book or something.

Long gaming sessions could lead to you needing to plug your Switch in so that you can keep playing. This is particularly annoying because the charging port is located on the bottom of the console, which makes it uncomfortable to hold. Just about any stand that will support the switch will have a cutout that will allow you to plug it in and keep it charging while you play.

Stand Options

You can find stands in all shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. Stands that are made to support tablets, like the iPad, will be able to easily support your Nintendo Switch. Let's take a look at some of the different options.

MoKo Multi-Angle Case

This one doubles as a case to protect your Switch's display when you are not using it, and a stand when you are. It has an integrated stand that can be used in three different positions and precise cutouts so that you don't have to remove it to charge or dock your JoyCons.

Lamicall Multi-Angle Stand

This option is designed for more than just your Switch. You can use it with a phone or tablet as well, and when you aren't using it, you can fold it up and keep it in your bag without it taking up much space. It comes in a variety of colors so you can pick the one you like the most and regularly sells for between $12 and $16.

Nyko Power Pak

You get two accessories for the price of one here. One may argue that its primary use would be to provide extra power to the Switch using its internal 5000mAh battery, but the fold-out stand on the back adds more functionality to it. You do pay a little extra for the double convenience, but at around $25 it's hard to pass up.
