This isn’t a third party stand though, so I don’t get why it needed to be commented. This is essentially Nintendo’s own one because they’re always recommending this one and it’s the only one been sold from day one and on the Nintendo Store website.

Hori have a good reputation and their stuff is licensed by Nintendo.

And a licensed one at it!
I own this and if im honest I wish id waited and bought the metal Mario one for £15 that comes with a bag for itself too...

but heat for the price as it is worth 8 quid... you can get cheaper unlicensed ones.. but the quality usually isn't as good from my experience.

You can always sell it to CeX and get the other one

Different models and yeah I would never used wired myself either, especially since I have had two pro controllers since last year (the original one in April and second one was the Splatoon one I preordered- wouldn’t have got the first one if I had known about the second one! Ended up keeping both anyway )

Oh they look the same model to me but different skins - there was a deal at smyths for 17.99 for the Zelda and Mario one and even though id probably prefer Mario stuff I have a Zelda dock sock and Zelda leather screen case thing - so I went for the matching effect and I liked it was mostly black!

Different models apparently the new design ones were better as they were heavier and had better controls or something

Have said this before on here, I have the Hori stand and it sucks. Unusual too as always found Hori Nintendo stuff to be good. I don't like the design of their stand or how light it is.

There’s a metal one by PowerA which is super Mario which might interest you

I have a kind of opposite situation. I’ve never had anything Hori before but I found this good enough (albeit, a little confusing)

THis is a joke right. This is a piece of plastic. There's no connection to the switch whatsoever. You need some sort of mad witch craft for this to brick anything. In fact you've more chance an actual brick bricking your switch than this.
None of you get what's happening. It's the type of USB C cable that can brick your Switch. So in theory you can use what ever stand you want, if the cable you are using isn't complaint to the Switch USB C requirement it will most likely brick it. It's rediculous.
I've just ordered a switch (serious question) why would anyone need a stand when the switch comes with a kick stand built on for table top mode?

The stand is fairly weak, and if you want your switch to be a bit higher then this is what you need
