Good price per mAh.
I've been looking for another one like the Sony 10000mAh for $16.

Is this safe for a Nintendo Switch Lite? I'm asking because I heard not all power banks work as intended with Switches.

TLDR - I don't own a switch, but no I don't think so.

I don't own a switch, but my understanding is that when looking for a powerbank you want to make sure the voltage provided by the powerbank is within the limits of what the switch will accept. From what I can tell, that means 5V or less, which this powerbank does provide.

As with any electronic, the amps will determine charge speed, based on other switch branded powerbanks, it looks like most provide 5V at 3A, this unit provides 5V at 2.4A maximum, when one USB is used, which means it will charge slower than a switch branded powerbank, and slower still if you have two items plugged in.

There is generally no harm to the battery for charging at a lower amperage, although charging at an amperage higher than what the battery is generally rated for will cause earlier deterioration and result in shorter battery life.

Never mind, they are really in different categories. The OP is more portable, the one I linked it just for more capacity.
