Playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate with others in tabletop mode can be quite a pain without a proper way to stand up your console. With the Playstand, you'll be able to keep your Nintendo Switch sitting upright and stable throughout every match. It's even adjustable, allowing you to find the best viewing angle possible in any situation.

You won't have to choose between playing or charging, as there's an opening where you'll be able to plug in your Nintendo Switch to a power source while it's sitting on the Playstand. It even offers helps your console stay well-ventilated to prevent overheating. Its lightweight design is collapsible to make packing it away for travel even easier, while non-skid rubber feet help to keep the stand in place while it's being used on a desk or a table. AmazonBasics also includes a one-year limited warranty with its purchase.
