If you never want to be interrupted by dead Joy-Cons again, this charging grip is your best option. The base charges with an included USB-C cable, then connects to your Joy-Cons for a comfortable grip. Charges Joy-Cons in about hours.
The included charging cable is only 2' long, so you'll need a longer cable to play while charging. More expensive than most charging stations.
This simple charging station is officially licensed by Nintendo and charges up to 4 Joy-Cons, which can slide into the base the same way they attach to the Switch. The station is powered by USB and can plug directly into the Switch dock.
Some customers experienced issues with the indicator lights.
Whether you want to charge 4 Joy-Cons, 2 pro controllers, your Switch, or any combination of these, this is the charger for you. A reliable charger that plugs into the Switch dock via USB.
The LED indicators are incredibly bright, even when the station isn't charging anything.
If you're just looking for a functional charger that holds up to four Joy-Cons, this is a great option. The acrylic lights change from red to green when the Joy-Cons are fully charged, which takes about 3 hours. Very few issues with charging.
Lights remain on even when this station isn't charging.
Despite the low price, this is a reliable charging station that works well if all you need to charge are Joy-Cons. The indicator lights aren't too bright, and the station plugs directly into the dock via USB.
Some customers reported that their station only partially charges their Joy-Cons.

Any Nintendo Switch owner with more than two Joy-Cons knows how frustrating it can be when several Joy-Cons run out of charge. A charging station is a great solution that usually won’t break the bank. Some stations charge Joy-Cons, while others can charge a combination of Joy-Cons, Pro controllers, and even the Switch itself. In most cases, the charging station plugs into the Switch dock via USB, meaning you’ll need a USB wall adapter to free up a port on the dock. For something that charges while you play, some docks come in the form of a handheld grip, typically for a higher price than a traditional charging station.
