HORI Multiport USB Playstand

best nintendo switch accessories horimultiportplugged

Want to take your Switch to a friend’s house and use it in tabletop mode? You can easily do so with the system’s internal stand or an inexpensive plastic accessory, but you won’t be able to use the USB ports on the Switch dock this way. With the HORI Multiport USB Playstand, you get a stand with an adjustable viewing angle and a small profile, as well as four USB ports. This allows you to plug in compatible controllers and use them like you would the standard dock, and it supports the official AC adapter, so you can keep it charged and running indefinitely.


Playing your Switch in tabletop mode is a great option for gaming when you’re out and about, but your battery can die quickly if you don’t have access to your charger and an outlet. With the S-Charge, previously called the SwitchCharge, you not only get a far superior stand than the one built into the Switch, but a 10,000 mAh battery that can keep your Switch fully charged for hours of extra time. The device comes with slots to store two game cartridges, and the included USB port gives you the ability to charge your phone from the battery while you play. Because it also features a USB-C port, you can charge the S-Charge with a standard Switch AC adapter or by plugging it into the dock.

iBolt Headrest Mount

The Switch is perfect for long car rides, and iBolt’s Switch Headrest Mount is a solid option if you want to play multiplayer games, or play with a pro controller. The mount attaches to the metal bar of your car’s headrest using an Allen key clamp, and it can be adjusted to position the console itself in the center of the back seat area. During our time with the unit we were sent, the mount didn’t budge, allowing us to play our games even as our car took sharp turns. The only downside is the bottom clamp for the Switch, which doesn’t provide access to the charging port, so you may need to take charging breaks.

Nyko Power Pak

Nyko’s Charge Base is a great option for using the Switch in your own house, but it’s a little too bulky to take on the go. Instead, you want to pick up the Power Pak. The device clips onto the back of your Switch and offers a bulkier kickstand, so you’ll still be able to prop it up wherever you go. The best part, however, is the 5,000 mAh battery, which is more substantial than the Switch’s own battery. This means you’ll be able to play games for about twice as long without ever having to find a power outlet.
