Nintendo Announces New Official Adjustable Switch Charging Stand

Don't brick your Switch -- buy official!


Nintendo has just announced an official adjustable charging stand for the Nintendo Switch, so you can stop buying those third-party cradles and chargers that are bricking your systems. 

Coming July 13, the charging stand will run you $19.99, but it'll make Tabletop mode a lot simpler since you can just keep your precious handheld charging even while you're powering through Super Mario Odyssey or getting down with a game of 1-2-Switch with your friends. There's an AC adapter port on the side of the stand, so you can keep it in Tabletop mode for simpler and longer charging sessions. 

If you're looking to pick one of these stands up, you'll have to seek one out when it hits retailers in-store or online soon -- it doesn't look like it's available anywhere just yet, as Nintendo continues its tradition of announcing things in the middle of the night on a weekday. It's definitely good news, though! I'll want to pick one up, for sure.
