Noob question, is the switch only charged by the docking station? How do you charge it when out and about? Do people buy a separate charger?

It is a USB C charger which either plugs into the dock, or the switch itself.

Just use the adapter cable that is plugged in to the unit or can buy a USB cable cheap enough

I use a USB-A to USB-C cable to charge the switch when out. Or you could buy another Nintendo adapter to use. I would be cautious of just using any USB charger such as a MacBook as there are reports of Nintendo being non-standard.
Is this the one with the smaller battery?

Great thing about the charging port is it is a USB type C. If you have a charger plugged into your cigarettes lighter port in the car, just plug in a USB type c cable on the go. Also, having a good 20000 3.0 poweebank is Handy for the switch when taking other means of public transport.

Yep, title says V1 so will be the old original 2017 edition.

Poor price IMHO, should be down sub £200 on sale by this stage, especially since this one is not even the correct region (US)...

My thoughts exactly, if it had the bigger battery I would of snapped it up but with the smaller battery and trouble of having to use an adapter I'm gonna let this one slide (unless it was like 150 then I'd take it in a heartbeat)
FYI the battery is the same (exact same part number) the extra battery life comes from hardware optimisations to the CPU and GPU.

No one will be asking this question
Nope. This is the first gen switch that came out. Before the optimisations. The v2 actually has no difference in performance/ graphics, just more optimised to increase battery life

I'm thinking about getting a switch. Are they worth getting?

Personally, I think they are VERY expensive for the relatively weak specification compared to traditional consoles and you typically pay more for the games and accessories too (many term it Nintendo tax) than on the Xbox One/PS4.

To give it it's dues though the games library is VERY impressive indeed considering the console has only been on the market two and a half years. Obviously you get all the Nintendo first party stuff, but unlike many previous Nintendo consoles the third parties are also giving it full support, well except EA but the amount of garbage they put out these days I doubt anyone cares much about them.

Anyway, yes, if you can get a console at a good discount (debateably the hardest part), I'd say go for it, I don't think you would be dissapointed...

Absolutely in my opinion, especially if your a fan of all the Nintendo exclusive games such as Mario, Zelda, Smash Bros, Pokémon etc etc.

If you play mainly online games like shooters then no, it's online is poor. Also if you have no problems accessing a TV and never need the portable aspect then again, I'd probably recommend a different system as the games look better and are cheaper 9 times out of 10.

I have a Switch Lite as I have no need to play docked at a TV, if I'm going to take the effort to play at a screen, I'll play my PC, but as something to play on my break at work, or anytime your out and about, it's awesome!!

It supposedly has a better display too, regarding brightness etc. Main difference seems to be battery though.
