The Joy-Cons 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-Cons, many players have taken to having multiple sets of these controllers. Some have taken to playing with the Pro Controller instead of the Joy-Cons 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.

You have the power

Whether you play with the Joy-Cons and collect all the colors, or you prefer the traditional controller feel and have picked up a Pro Controller or two, or a combination of the two, there is a charging station for you. To get something officially licensed, if third party makes you hesitant, we recommend the PowerA Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charger and Joy-Con & Pro Controller Charging Dock options, depending on what kind of controllers you're looking to use. But for an affordable and compact alternative for charging your Pro Controllers, the YOOWA Pro Controller Charger is simple and holds two controllers.

From Joy-Cons only to Pro Controllers to everything in between, these are all great options sure to fit your wants and needs for the perfect charging station. No matter which one you choose, your controllers will be juiced up and ready to go in no time!
