I have one of these, a similar brand in black and it works great for phones and tablets. Super handy when you want to watch something on your phone or tablet while sitting at a table or doing dishes. I often find that Ipad cases that have a stand never have a right angle for viewing and this allow you to adjust your viewing angle, there is a tipping point but you figure out how much you can angle it etc pretty quickly.

It should be able to handle an iPad mini
Yes it should be able to! I have one(different brand, same product) and I use it with my full size iPad, you just cant angle it too forward or it'll fall but it works great for most viewing angles

I bought one, thanks OP!

PowerA makes really good solid products. I own 3 game cases from them as well and they're extremely well made & durable.

Agree it's a good stand but the only thing I would add is that even though the joints are quite sturdy, it depending on that friction in the joints to hold your switch up. So if you bump it it can cause the stand to fold possibly dumping your switch. Not a big deal as it's still sturdy just something to consider.
I'm not exactly sure where you're getting your misinformation.

I purchased this same metal Mario stand a year ago, and it is currently as sturdy as the day I bought it. I have had no issues with loose joints, and absolutely no concerns about this product "dumping" my $300 switch.

Even if you are speaking generally about stands with joints, most metal stands don't have joints that will cause a device dump.

Even the Amazon reviews for this product disagree with your comment, and the only MILD complaint is that the base for this stand is HEAVIER than most portable stands. However, this metal stand was designed to hold a $300 gaming device, most people would prefer the heavier base. The heavier base also resolves your dumping concern.

Again, since the reviews do not mention this product "dumping" switches, and because I have had nothing but a great experience, I'm unsure exactly where your concern is coming from.

I see that you are asking about using a vita slim with this stand. However,
I own the classic launch model Playstation Vita (not a slim) as well as this very same Red Metal Mario Stand... so I tried it out:

Basically, I do NOT recommend using this stand to hold a launch model Vita since the space between the bottom and the back of the origial Vita is thick and rounded.

The launch model Vita's thickness and curved bottom makes it so that the Vita sits on top of the "hooks" for this stand (instead of within the stand's grasp).

As a result, the launch model Vita is not at all secure when used with this stand and can easily fall forward.

Again, I know you need info regarding you slim with this stand, but I decided to test this for anyone that may be curious about the othe model since I don't have a slim.

This isn't a deal. This item was under $10 for the last 2 years. It's pretty generic to start with unless you consider the silk screened logo. I have a white one that's almost exactly the same. It works fine for a phone and it's handy because you can snake a bale to charge it in place, but I wouldn't trust it with anything larger. It becomes too easy to topple even with something as light as a Kindle.

Amazon Basics also makes a similar product, though it is black plastic rather than metal. Combined with the WELCOME10 deal, it may work out better.

EDIT: Black Amazon Basics model for $5.95 (before tax) with WELCOME10. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasi...B071LQD2Y7

I have 2 of these from previous deals and use them at my desks (home and office) to primarily hold my phone. I have a Galaxy S20 Ultra so holding it by hand for an extended length tends to get a bit cumbersome. I use it daily, especially when I'm taking video calls from my phone. I rarely use it with my switch but I think it's still definitely worth having.

Have a black Nintendo one from previous deal and it's excellent. I play with the pro controller on desktop most of the time and this stand is perfect for it. I did pay around $6(?) for the black one so hard to say how good of a deal this is but I can recommend it for the quality and utility.

Why are you so defensive? Do you work for PowerA or something? He was just describing his experience with the product.

I have the black version of this. It's great. Solid metal. We also use it as a phone stand for facetime/zoom when not using it for the switch.

Well, they just rebrand those cheap gadgets, they didn't reinvented that, then charging double or triple by throwing in a picture to trademark it.
