Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charging Stand Review – Forever Charged

One of the main worries prior to the Nintendo Switch releasing was the fact that the Joy-Con Grip included with the console would not charge the Joy-Con. This was alleviated by the fact that the Nintendo Switch tablet kept the Joy-Con charged at given time, even when out of the dock. It’s also a non-issue due to the fact that the Joy-Con can retain charge for 15+ hours.

Well, if you’ve ran into the issue of your Joy-Con losing charge, or looking for a way to charge that second pair of Joy-Con, then there’s no better solution than the PowerA Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charging Stand.

Honestly, I’m always a little sceptical when using third-party accessories, but I’m really impressed with the quality of this product. You’d be fooled into believing that it is a Nintendo-made product. The weight of the product out of the box is really sturdy.


The product works exactly how you’d expect. You can slide in anywhere between 1-4 Nintendo Switch Joy-Con and you’ll get a red light if they’re charging and a green light once it’s fully charged.

Pulling the Joy-Con in and out of the dock is incredibly seamless. There’s no Nintendo Switch “click”¬†which you’ll be more than used to hearing.

Arguably the best thing about the Joy-Con Charging Station is the fact that it plugs straight into one of the Nintendo Switch USB ports, and continues to charge even when the tablet isn’t in the actual¬†dock. There’s also a wind up USB cord in the bottom which means you won’t have any access cord showing in your entertainment unit.


In the future, I can see the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charging Station being really useful. As games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms are released and your collection of Joy-Con grows, you’ll need somewhere to reliably charge your Joy-Con. There’s currently no better option than this product.

The Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Charging Stand is available on April 12th for $49.95
