When you've got your Nintendo Switch in the dock and connected to the TV, your game time is perfect. You can grind your mats for hours without worrying about battery drain. But if you're playing in tablet mode, you've got to add some recharge time. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn't think about where the charging port is located when designing the Switch in tabletop mode.

If you want to be able to play while you're charging your Nintendo Switch, check out these excellent stands!

Note: We've removed the FastSnail and Nyko Portable docking kits because some docks are no longer compatible with the Switch as of firmware 5.0 and could cause serious damage to your Switch's software.

Lamicall Multi-Angle Stand

The Lamicall multi-angle stand for the Nintendo Switch is an incredible stand that is easily portable. With two movable areas and rubber cushions to keep your Switch in place, it's a way to keep your Switch in place. It's easy to charge your Switch, as well, with loads of room between the surface and your Switch.

For around $17, this stand is a great deal for this well-made product. This foldable, pocket size stand is great for when you want to play on the go or at a friends house.

Nyko Power Pak with stand

Tired of your Nintendo Switch running out of power? The Nyko Power Pak with stand can help you game longer and more comfortably!

The Nyko Power Pak with stand is a 5,000mAh battery pack that you clip onto the Switch, sort of like a battery case. It charges up your Switch when the power runs low, and you can turn the juice on and off as you please. There are LED indicator lights at the bottom to let you know your charging status. It also has a built-in kickstand, since the Power Pak actually covers the Switch's kickstand.

It costs around $40.

Moko Nintendo Switch Stand

If you're looking for a well-constructed and minimalist stand for your Nintendo Switch, the Moko Nintendo Switch Stand will likely appeal to you.

The brushed aluminum finish makes the stand look and feel like a well-constructed device. The hole in the back of the stand is perfect for holding cables out of the way so they don't get in the way of your screen, or get tangled up into a ball while you're playing.

You can get the Moko Nintendo Switch Stand in black, silver, or gold for about $17 and it has 210 degrees of movement, meaning you should be able to find the perfect viewing angle in tablet mode.

HORI Compact Nintendo Switch Stand

HORI has been making officially licensed Nintendo Switch accessories since the console launched, and the HORI Compact Nintendo Switch Stand is a perfect stand that you can take with you anywhere.

The HORI stand lets you set up your Nintendo Switch at three different viewing angles, and it also folds up entirely flat when it's not in use, making it perfect to store or travel with. Plus, it even has rubber grips on the bottom to prevent the stand from sliding around while you're playing.

It only comes in black and costs about $13
