If you don't like the flimsy design of the Nintendo Switch kickstand, you might already own the perfect alternative.
I have a stand luckily!!! I'll try this out, thank you!
Yes, I do have this stand, and it never crossed my mind. I'll try this out.
I tried it the and it leans back too far but, it is stable.
I use it for Vita when i remote play. works well.
It has a perfectly good stand that puts it at the perfect angle...why would I want a worse one that leans it too far back?
It's too vertical if you are close and tall, the whole using the kickstand on an airplane is nearly impossible for a large portion of the population. That plus it's pretty flimsy for an expensive piece of electronics, a lot of people simply don't trust it.
Have you used it? Not at all. I do it at work like that sitting closer than on a plane all the time. Hasn't been an issue.
The angle isn't really perfect, though. The Switch needs to get a bit more inclined than what the default stand allows.
Yep, had mine still in my original Wii U box, still in the plastic. Never used it since I always used the charging cradle stand.
Just be careful not to block the air in-take vents at the back!
I'll have to give this a try have my wiiu stuff still. My only gripe about all kick stands on most this is for me everyone's sold now be like the Microsoft surface kick stand only one that fits all angles.
Maybe you can also use the stand that comes bundled with the Kid Icarus 3DS game? I got both stands but no Switch though.
Funny you say that. We've just updated the article with that very suggestion.
Well, if it gives that game exposure that's only a good thing.
Hell, yes, I do have that stand, and it sounds like an awesome idea! Shit, it's been years since I got that game, no idea where I left it... lol.
I kept my Wii-U stand when I traded that system in a while back. My cable provider has an app that lets me watch tv on my phone, so I use it for that occasionally. You definitely wouldn't have to worry about it falling with that.
Will have to try this. Thanks for the tip!
TLDR: Try using the Wii U Gamepad Stand.
Perfect. So much better than the kickstand.
Didn't even think about this....I'll try it out later.
Orrrrrr... you could just play zelda on your WiiU :)
