Read in Browser

June 14, 2022

Maybe you’ve heard of NAS devices, the small boxes that connect hard drives with your router. People often think that NAS devices are just glorified hard drives—that’s only somewhat true.

STUFF WE LIKE This Joy-Con Charging Station Connects Directly to Your Switch Dock
This Joy-Con Charging Station Connects Directly to Your Switch Dock

If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances already picked up spare Joy-Cons so everyone can play. But charging all those Joy-Cons is a pain. Sure, you could buy any old charging dock, but that’s extra room and another plug for your crowded outlets.

That’s why we like this ipega four-port charging. It connects to your Switch dock’s USB port and wraps around the front. Slap in your Joy-Cons and a handy LED indicator lets you know the controller is charging. No need for additional plugs, and it takes minimal space. Best of all, it’s not that expensive. Just what the Doctor Mario ordered.
