Only a few dollars of savings, but a second charger is something a lot of new Switch owners are probably looking for and the official Nintendo one is likely to rarely be on sale.

I've tried at least 10 different usb-c chargers and ONLY the Nintendo and apple ones (even more expensive setup) charge it properly. all the other ones (anker/monoprice/etc) charge at less than half the rate, if they even work at all. Also, if your switch ever goes completely dead, most won't be able to charge it at all. Same with the pro controller.

This feels like a no-brainer, but can't you just use any USB Type-C adapter?

Yeah, for owning a Switch, a 2nd AC Adapter is a must. I found a seller on eBay that sold used switches still in packaging so I just grabbed one from him. May even grab another.

I just bought a switch. I'm wondering if I can use the usb-c cable with iPad charger or portable charger to charge my *NSYNC the go.

I've got a switch on order. I assume there's an included plug that will go into the TV dock thing. This is what I'd use to charge/play while not on the dock?

It can charge really slow on some usb-c's. If you aren't docked alot the A.C. adapter is nice because you can play plugged in and your switch won't die which was great for me and didn't happen with my usb. Also there have been some reports of people breaking their switches using certain usb c chargers not meant for Switch.

My phone uses usb-c. I brought my phone charger along with the switch dock on vacation, but not the charger that came with the switch.I could use the charger when switch was not docked, but couldn't while docked. Had to go buy an actual switch charger in order to play it on the tv

Don't see the reason for this when a usb c charger can be found for $10 or less elsewhere

This is a good adapter to have if you plan on buying a 2nd 3rd party dock or portable hub. You can use a USB-C cable, however it does not charge as fast.
