Use with your Nintendo Switch to enable output on your TV via HDMI. Also works with MacBook, Samsung S8 Plus, Google Pixel etc.

Supports Power Delivery and a USB 3.1 port so you can power your device at the same time and connect other peripherals. All 5 star reviews.

Max 1080p resolution so those needing 4K support should look elsewhere.

Yes. This is an alternative to the dock, but, it still needs an AC adapter and the Switch only works in docked mode with the genuine Nintendo one at the moment (due to it having odd voltage/current output that others done match) so if, like me, you want a dock alternative for a 2nd TV, you need to also buy another official charger at £25, making the official dock with charger for 50 quid posted the other day look like a more sensible option.
If you think the dock is stupid and would rather sit the Switch on a flat surface and plug into the USB C port rather than just slot it in, this is for you.

Those looking for a 4K USB-C to HDMI that is cheaper but not Switch compatible should look here.

I've seen most of these around the 15£ mark.
Need to pick one of these up, the switch dock is one of the worst things Nintendo has ever designed bar the virtual boy.

£16 something off eBay. Should do the trick.

Any word yet if this is damaging switches like the nyko dock? Mind you this is an adapter rather than a dock so hopefully it should not.

I thought the Nintendo dock had extra cooling in it to stop the switch from overheating in docked mode?

Apart from the fact this one is being sold and shipped from Hong Kong. Paying £5 more for having the peace of mind using Amazon and their excellent returns service may be well worth it

Not true.

The switch can be charged from a Samsung adaptive charger while in this dock above. It doesn't charge it fast, but it can hold a stable charge and slowly fill the battery while you play.

The genuine charger is a lot better over using a lower amp tablet charger.
apart from the adaptor, does it come with any other cables ? e.g: usb-c cable for the power source and hdmi cable etc

That'll take upto a month. I would cancel and pay the extra £3 from the seller I picked and you'll get it start of January, maybe end of December.

Does it enable this to upscale I.e. to run the Switch in docked mode too?

Any USB C will charge the Switch...

That seller is based in Hong Kong, check the seller information.

They change the item location to Jersey, London etc so that when people search and choose the option for UK only items, the stuff they are selling still come up.
Seen it plenty times.

Runs on the TV if that's what you mean. I do not own the official dock. Tablet screen goes black and the display is on the Tele.

(Didn't notice at first it was the same seller I had bought my unit from).

This is the same seller I bought from, they have UK storage. Like a lot of Chinese sellers do.

My unit took less than a week to turn up.

I think the question, is whether in this TV mode, the Switch is getting 100% power - i.e. as the official dock does. I think there is a belief that some of these adaptors still pump "handheld mode" into the TV, so games don't get full resolution etc.

I've not tried an adaptor yet, but I will be interested to see what proper testing yields compared to the official dock.

Just tested it for you.

32901421.jpg32901421.jpg
Mk8 looks 1080p or higher to me.(4k TV could be causing upscale).


Edit
Would help if I was on my TV game setting without the sharpness turned up high. (Was on standard in top 2 photos).

There is nothing special to the dock, it's literally just a tiny circuit board that deals with USB, power and HDMI to the TV.
Does it support 60fps?

Bought it without a dock when Mario Odyssey came out. Some guy had it for sale, said he sold it to his sister as her boy damaged it some how.

Didn't care, as wanted it for portable mode. But bought this adapter for mk8 4 player

It doesn't have any cooling at all. It doesn't need cooled.
I get the impression the official dock doesn’t have any cooling, thanks all!
I have read the thread but am still not understanding this at all for Switch usage, or getting what the point of it is, or why it is needed. If anyone wants to explain it in laymans terms I will be grateful

Could this be used to plug your switch into another TV in your home? Or at another house?
All without taking your dock from your main TV..?
Was tempted to get one, but if you read reviews for these devices they have a few users complaining their switch wouldn’t charge after using these devices.

too much of a risk for a £270 quid console

This isn't true. With these small 3rd party dongles you don't require the genuine Nintendo dock. I use just a standard usb wall charger, even a battery pack while this is plugged in and it works fine. It does however slowly drain when playing intensive games (Zelda, Mario, etc) but you'll still get a few hours out of it at least.

So, while I wouldn't get this if you're going to use it as a permanent / 2nd dock for the switch at home and would get an additional dock as mentioned above, it's a great dock alternative when travelling and also works with any Android phone to mirror the screen, again making it great for travelling for Netflix, etc.

Note: Doesn't work with Dex on Samsung Galaxy phones, just screen mirroring.

I'm late but not entire picture here! The official sick helps ensure unobstructed airflow into the Switches built in cooking system, which really kicks in in docked mode do to the extra power being used. People buying these adapters and placing their switches backface down on a surface - blocking the intake vents - are idiots and asking for trouble down the road
