Joy-Con are the controllers that come with the Nintendo Switch and can be charged when connected to the Switch console on the dock or by a USB-C cable. However, with all of the color options available for additional Joy-Con, many players have taken to having multiple sets of these controllers. Some have taken to playing with the Pro Controller instead of the Joy-Con for a more familiar grip. With more than one controller, you'll want a charging station to keep them all efficiently charged and ready with one of the best Nintendo Switch controller chargers listed here.
