Doesn't look like it's anything too special. It's 3.0 amps, but plenty other alternatives can be found in this range.

These are going for $19.99 everywhere else and are reported to reliably charge Pixel 2 smartphones. Seems to be a cheap alternative to separate USB C chargers and cables.

I don't have any evidence to back this up but, when you fast charge anything, doesn't it kill the battery? (Shorten life)

Nm, it does but it doesn't really matter. https://lifehacker.com/5986878/ra...snt-matter

What is your suggested powerbank for the Switch? I only had it for maybe 20minutes, but I was already concerned about the USB port placement at the bottom and whether or not it would quickly wear out with constant plugging/unplugging.

One of the Q&A commenters said the charger supports USB-C Power Delivery which would quick charge Pixel phones.

I'd go with Anker? Anything 10400mAh and up seems like overkill, unless it's a really long flight without a power source.

Slickdeals (God bless this site) always has a powerbank on sale somewhere, even in unlikely places like Lowes. I bought two of these when this deal came out: https://slickdeals.net/f/11042559-mylowe-s-members-anker-powercore-10400mah-power-bank-12-75-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

(Sigh) and now, I have 4 power banks lying around. 2 in my backpack, 1 in the car, and 1 from that Lowe's deal still in the package. Upside is, i'm always Johnny on the spot with power at Disneyland.

I wouldn't worry about wearing out the connection, just as long as you don't yank the cord or force it in. Take care of your equipment, and your equipment will take care of you.

I guess go with my option if you want the Lambo of Switch car chargers? http://techpointgaming.com/portab...r-charger/

For chargers, here is a good reddit thread discussion on them

5 volt, 3 amp car charger, which provides fast charging for USB-C devices, unlike any other USB car charger.

Also great if you have a USB-C phone. Price is comparable to other USB-C car chargers on AMZN.

some chargers reportedly fail to charge the switch at all and in some cases damaged or completely destroy the switch. there is a google spreadsheet floating around that shows which chargers are good for the switch and which aren't.

personally, i use my macbook charger for the switch when travel, and my car has a 120V outlet, so i wouldn't bother with this. also, earlier this month best buy was selling insignia branded dock and AC charger for $30. it's back up to $40 now.
