Tempted at that price!
Do these still scratch the screen of the switch?

Do these still scratch the screen of the switch?


It depends, it was unique to certain ones, not something that affected them on.
Either way, stick a glass protector on and your fine.
Def best price I've seen as been keeping my eye out for one, thanks op
Tempting but I'm more inclined to wait for the Nyko Portable Docking kit. Much more portable. Good deal though so have some heat
When the switch came out I saw numerous reviews raising questions over the dock design. Maybe Nintendo have altered the design since release. I'm a Switch owner (two months) and have nothing but good things to say. I've had a glass screen protector on since day one (even without it I'm almost certain no harm would come of the switch - looking inside the dock I see no sharp edges etc). I've also never had the switch unintentionally lose connection with the dock. Or found joy con straps that hard to remove, mine coming on and off frequently for Mario Kart which I feel are essential for joy con play with a friend.

Hopefully if the dock continues to drop in price it will be a nice route to getting a second official charger quite cheaply. Bonus with the dock being there for a second tv.

Any idea when it will be available? I'm interested, thanks.
The original is too big and bulky and with these smaller docks coming out these will have to go cheaper.

Just found this, it appears to be an alternate to the dock, not sure if any good though:

just so you are aware with the amazon one you need to use the original power adapter that came with the switch or purchase a 2nd so not really two docks just a smaller replacement for the original until bought another lead

Cheers.

I was just reading up on them. Apparently they aren't all that good. This Nyko one coming out looks the full package.
Will they sell the switch on its own
I know people accuse the dock of being bulky but for me the whole appeal of this is that easy slot it in dock setup for 2 rooms in the house, its original price was too much but £50 seems ok for official power adapter hdmi lead and a proper official dock.

Will have original in the study and this one in the lounge for easy swapping on the switch between both rooms

So far as I can tell so far it *might* be out at the end of next month in the US, haven't seen anyone offer it up for pre-order in the UK yet though =/

For the record those dockless adapters don't solve the problem of the switch's fan vents being on the back of the device, so you'd still have to carry a stand of some description or find a dubious way of propping it up.

Certainly an option but you'd have to prop up the Switch so you didn't block the vents on the back - not ideal sadly.

I contacted Nyko a couple of weeks ago asking if they had a date in mind for when it would be available in the UK and this was their reply:

Good effort, unfortunate that they're hesitating. If it's not released at the same time in the UK as the US I'll be importing one. Tempting to buy several and sell them on eBay >.>

I might get a friend to bring me one over... definitely looks like the best option
This is a great price for the official dock!! I purchased a Chinese portable adapter from Amazon and it is great I take it everywhere with me!

I would just use the Switch stand for the vents so as long as the device can output to TV then I wouldn't worry too much
Anyone got a despatch notice yet?

What, without the dock? No, that literally goes against the entire philosophy of the product.
