About this deal

It’s harder to find non-compliant cables like this now, (though they were prolific back in late 2015). A lot of consumer confusion about what chargers can properly charge the Switch also comes from a lack of precision when testing a charger with the Switch. The Switch uses non-standard "USB-C" (I put it in quotes because being non-standard, it's not really USB-C). Combining this information with the charging measurements from the above section, and a picture begins to form about how the different charging setups (USB-A, USB-C, and USB-PC) distinguish themselves from one another. The reason is that all the big brands are putting their bet on Qualcomm Quick Charge standards which is not compatible with USB PD hence doesn't work on the Switch.

But much like the “calories in/out” formula, its deceptive simplicity obscures the complexity of what’s actually happening with charging. A well-cared item that has seen limited use but remains in great condition ideally with the original packaging. e., without the 56 kΩ pull-up resistor), you can also get the Switch to draw 2A from your typical 2. AC Adapter Power Supply Fast Travel Charging Kit for Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite Support TV Mode Product Details Support TV Mode - This nintendo switch charger supports handheld mode, also works for nintendo switch docking and playing on a TV.That 15v will be stepped down in the Switch and/or Dock to 5v where the track lengths are short and its easy to run extra tracks to different components. Nintendo fucked up the pin-out on the connector making it completely non-standard and incompatible to any other type-C charger released.

And finally, add on the final fact that the Nintendo Switch does not take all the power a charger might support.I also have a separate addendum article listing the various chargers I’ve measured/tested to reach my conclusions. But I know that the Moto G6 does support external display outputs and Ethernet connectivity - I just haven't found a device which allows those, yet. Efficiency is an argument, certainly, if you're living on solar cells and batteries you would not want to invert 12V up to 120V just to drop it back down again with a USB-C AC adapter :-) .
