You may not think a stand is necessary for Nintendo Switch Lite, but that's where you'd be wrong. Due to the Nintendo Lite being handheld, it's incompatible with the Nintendo Switch docking station that links your Switch to the TV. With that in mind, you'll need a stand for the Lite to play with friends, as well as for those intense sessions of Smash where you'll want to use a Pro Controller. Thankfully, we've got a fair selection of stands for you to choose from.
An official stand for your Lite
Why not try something official, like the HORI Lite stand? You can charge while playing (though the AC adapter is not included) and can even connect up to two devices.
The Nulaxy stand comes with an adjustable stand that allows you to re-adjust the height you can play your Lite. And it has rubber pads on the prongs to prevent marks and scratches.
One for each color
FYoung has done one better for you if you want a stand for their Nintendo Lite that matches the color of your device. It's also small, making it convenient enough to carry everywhere.
Both for Lite and Switch
This works for both the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Lite. All you need to do is balance your console on the collapsible stand and voilà!
Charge while you play
This charging stand will let you power up your Switch while you play. It works for both Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite, though it comes in colors that match the Switch Lite. It's fairly compact and solid, so you won't have to worry about accidentally breaking parts if you take it on the go — just toss it and your charging cable in a bag, and you're set!

If you're one of the many people who bought a Switch just to play Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can show off your love with this themed stand compatible with both the Switch and Switch Lite. It can be adjusted to three different angles and has storage space for game cartridges for when you've already checked in with all your villagers and have time to play something else.
This is a portable charger, and a Switch Lite stand all in one with a USB-C cable included so you can recharge your charger without using your console cable. The sturdy thick stand on the back is perfect for playing hands-free and, with the added battery life, worry-free!

You have to admit, all of these Switch Lite stands are pretty cool. Of course, a part of you may wonder why on Earth you'd want a stand for the Switch Lite when it's a handheld console. Despite it being handheld, that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to play multiplayer games with your friend. With that in mind, due to the Switch Lite being unable to connect to a TV, you'll want to invest in a stand that allows you and your friend to see the screen as you play together.
Every one of these stands is pretty great, but a few stick out, the first being the official Lite stand from HORI. With the HORI Lite stand, you'll be able to play seriously with friends while charging at the same time. If you have both a Nintendo Switch and a Nintendo Lite, the stand is compatible with both consoles.
We also have a soft spot for the FYOUNG Lite stands, mostly because they are pretty, and we want everything to match our Lite, no matter what. But aesthetics aside, the FYOUNG stands are very easy to carry around and are simple enough to set up that you'd be wrong not to consider purchasing one for your Nintendo Lite, along with maybe some other Switch Lite accessories.
