      An unnecessary purchase for most

      When it comes to a new system, you always want to make sure you have all the accessories you'll need and possibly even get some accessories that maybe aren't needed but improve the quality of life. The latter is where the Charging Grip fits. The Charging Grip isn't necessary but it has the potential to improve the overall experience. The problem with it though is is outside of letting you charge your Joycons, it doesn't do anything else special. To add to that, Switch comes with basic grip already and the Joycons last about 20 hours on a single charge. Furthermore, unless you're playing exclusively on the TV and don't own a Pro controller, have a second person who actively plays with you, and/or can't remember to attach the Joycons onto the system, it's usefulness goes down significantly. I personally use the Switch portable half the time, I have a Pro controller, and I keep the Joycons attached unless I have somebody else over that wants to play, so this has been a pretty useless purchase for me. Maybe down the road I'll get more use from it, but, so far, I can't recall charging my Joycons using this. A word to the wise would be stick with grip that comes with the system unless you have a second pair of Joycons.

      Useful for Multiple JoyCon Sets

      I am pleased with the controller grip due to its ease of use and clear plastic construction which is much more appealing to me than the solid black grip that comes standard with the Nintendo Switch console. I was worried that I would not have a USB-A to USB-C cable needed for charging the JoyCons in the grip as my other personal electronic devices are still back on USB-microB, but I was delighted to see that an A to C cable was included in the box (to both my and the BestBuy employees' surprise) even though the packaging does not indicate its inclusion AT ALL. If you like using the grip that comes with the Switch, and you want to be able to charge a second set of JoyCons in it, then you will like this product, like I do! I'm still not sure why the JoyCon grips come with a loop for attaching what I can only assume would be a wrist strap like the ones on the JoyCons since no strap is included with this grip or the one with the console, but it doesn't really make much difference to me.

      Good quality grip that allows you to charge

      This is a good quality grip that allows you to charge two joycons at once. The grip that comes with the switch doesn't allow you to charge them in the grip. I got this for an extra set of joycons, so I would have 4 joycons to play multiplayer games (either 2 with 2 joycons in this charge grip and the one grip that comes with the switch, or 4 players with each having a joycon). Well, I and my kids, don't find the individual joycons very useful playing multiplayer. So we have used the joycon grips most of the time, playing 2 player (each with a grip and two joycons). I recently got the pro controller and I wish I would have got it earlier instead of extra joycons and a charging grip. I played over 100 hours of Zelda with this grip and joycons, and I like the pro controller better. This said, this grip is nice if you play a lot on the TV as you don't have to keep taking off the joycons to charge them.

      You won't really need it, but hey, more stuff

      I've owned a Switch for a while now, and I can honestly say that I've never had my Joycons die on me. I thought that the Joycon's lifespan would be similar to the Switch's but that wasn't the case at all. So here I am with an extra Joycon holding controller that charges them if you so wish to do that. I mean, if you have a couple of lads or gals just coming over, maybe they bring their Switches as well, then you got an extra controller for someone who isn't too fond of the Joycons. And, it charges too! So really, if you have a lot of friends, this is a good pick-up. Also #joyconboyz

      Best choice for 2nd Grip (right now)

      Posted

      This is your best choice for a 2nd Grip right now, because the $15 Comfort Grip is NOT made by Nintendo and is not the same as that which came with the console. It has design issues and doesn't feel solid like you would hope. That said, this more-expensive Grip feels exactly the same as the console-included controller. Just to be clear, there is no built-in battery (for $15 more than the alternative, you would figure they might design it with extra battery life, but not the case). The only difference is it has a USB receiver (USB-C, I think, but could be wrong) that connects to the console STAND (not the actual console for on-the-go) via 3-foot-long cord for charging. Not the best design for charging, but it's a solid controller and I've never run out of battery during long play sessions (probably 6-hours tested).

      A must own for Nintendo Switch owners

      Posted

      The Nintendo Switch console comes with two controllers which are used simultaneously by one player. Reportedly, they have pretty decent battery life. The problem is, the controller grip that comes with the console does not charge the "joycon" controllers. So if you're playing on the TV with the switch unit docked and your controller batteries deplete, the only way to charge them would be to click them back in the unit and wait 3 to 4 hours or switch to portable (off-TV) gaming for several hours while they slowly recover. Your only other option would be to spend $80 on another set of joycon controllers and keep your spare pair clicked into the switch unit while you use the other pair, then swap accordingly to charge. Likely a design to get folks to spend more money on accessories, this particular accessory should have been included with the system which makes this item a MUST OWN for every Switch owner.

      Worth it for many reasons!!

      I was struggling to choose between the Joy-Con Charging Dock (as I have 2 sets of Joy-Con) vs getting this.. Ultimately, as I planned to get grip anyway, spending the extra $15 to get this one that charges is well worth the price... the Joy-Con already hold such a long charge and the initial set can just be charged when connected to the tablet. Instead of spending $45 (Charge Dock & Non-Charge Grip) do yourself a favor and just shell out $30 for this, whether you have 1 set of Joy-Con or even 2!! You really won't need the Dock and be 100% satisfied with this grip, even if you just use it for charging and nothing more. Can't recommend it enough. It also helps that this has the Nintendo Switch logo on it as opposed to the PDP grip which has no logo on it.

      A while ago now (way back when I first bought my Nintendo Switch console) I also purchased this fine item, the Nintendo Switch - Joy-Con Charging Grip (by Nintendo). I must say that I'm very happy with it. This item allows me to charge my Nintendo Switch Joy con controllers using an included USB charging cable, which I can easily plug in to the Nintendo Switch Dock. The item is really easy to use and I can even charge the controllers while I am using them to play games. This device really comes in handy if you buy extra joycon controllers.. because you can use it to charge them up.. while keeping the original two controllers attached to the switch itself to keep them charged. This is a very good product!
