Dock for the tableThis is essentially a mini dock that lets you have all the functionality of hooking your switch to a tv, except you are playing portable. You can add up to 4 wired controlers, and there is a plug for the nintendo power adapter. Even the wired LAN adapter can be used. I bought this because I only play in tabletop mode and prefer wired controlers. As a bonus, this usb stand also acts as a charging dock. Just drop it in, connect power and controler cables, and you're good to go. I usually end up charging the switch when it is in sleep mode, then playing on battery with a single wired controler. The battery still seems to last the average 2-3 hrs depending on the game, and recharging takes a similar amount of time as before. I would not recommend charging and playing at the same time (either with this playstand or not) because the switch does run much hotter when doing this unless it is fully charged already. Overall the build quality is decent and this stand is sturdy enough to hold the switch. The usb port moves back and forth and is a bit loose to prevent damage when docking and undocking. There are two vent cutouts to let the switch cool normally, and rubber tabs allow a small airspace between the switch backplate and stand for even better cooling. Having the switch docked all the time will save the usb port from wear and tear since you can just plug in the adapter to the wall to charge it from now on (and this also wakes the switch so you don't need to press the power button when using wired controlers). The fit and finish could be a bit better, and the huge sticker on the front that tells you to update the switch before using it left a stain on the plastic when removed. But otherwise this is a great investment if you like to use your switch exclusively in tabletop mode. One last thing, make sure you remove your joycons from the switch if using wired controlers, otherwise some of the buttons on the controler might not work. I had no problems with the powerA wired controler once both joycons were removed from the system. It even has the correct icon and designation when you look in the controller menu; it should say USB under the wired controlers you hook up to the stand.
