$28.10 at Walmart.com. Probably worth trying at this price.

This is only a charger. It doesn't allow you to dock it to a TV to play.

Remember, shitty USB C chargers have been notorious for damaging devices.And while Nintendo has been pretty lenient with fixing switches under warranty that were damaged by third party chargers, theres a good chance they won't be able to salaveg your saves

How would you even know that? Do you have any evidence to support your claim?

Well it's true that a small percentage of shoddily made USB type C chargers have caused critical failure in a range of devices, that's fairly well documented at this point. Though my limited understanding is that it's largely limited to USB A to C cables and not C to C. But any cable that fails to apply the standard correctly could cause problems.

As for whether Nintendo can salvage your saves or not if the emmc flash chip is damaged then your saves are gone. Wholesale. Even if the flash chip isn't specifically damaged the repair process could just be them sending you back a different refurbished console.

I do know that there was a NYKO dock that came out last year and they had to pull it from Amazon since it was killing people's Switch. Lots of info about it on Google. Bottom line is that unless a Switch charger or dock has thousands of good reviews, just buy the official one and be done with it.

Used a tronsmart C-C charger and cable that fried the charging port on my google pixel phone. I smelled burning plastic and the cable end was too hot to touch.

USB-C is still the wild west unfortunately.

Is this just a trickle charge device or will this actually get your charge up even while playing a game?
