    Doesn't work as advertised

    Can you charge a Switch with these items? Yes. Can you do it well? No. First of all, if you wanted an AC adapter that you can use with your Switch Dock, keep walking. Second, if you wanted a Switch AC adapter that you could charge your Switch with as you play, keep walking. While you can technically use this to charge a switch, it's not powerful enough to charge while you actually play and straight up just doesn't work with the dock. Any modern USB Type C charger you buy will do a better job than this adapter, it's so weak. I returned it. I do, however, highly recommend the Insignia Switch Dock. It's built well and looks nice. The AC adapter that comes with it is actually powerful enough to charge while you play and it DOES support dock mode. In short, don't buy this. Save your money and buy a Type C cable for your multiplug car charger and literally any other Type C charger on the market.

    Returned. I was looking for something to charge the Switch while in the car while my son plays, but this is not it. It charges fine but not while playing. My son was playing Kirby and battery slowy drained even while plugged in. Got myself a dedicated usb-C to usb-C car plug and cable with higher watts (18w if u want better performance) and it now chargers alot quicker just like the dock charger. Be careful with usb A to usb C cables as they can damage the Switch, they need 56k ohm resister in them as stated by nintnedo, its not an issue with usb-C to usb-C cables.

    Did not work as advertised. Tried charging with every connection available (AC adapter and usb). After 3 hours the Switch is only at 42% and the charger itself is very hot. Look for an exact replacement rather than a different brand of charger. Will be returning tomorrow.

    Pretty cheap compared to the charger that came with the switch. Cable doesn't seem to plug into adapter or switch all the way and sometimes has to be adjusted perfectly to actually charge the switch when using wall adapter. I didn't try it out during the return period otherwise I would of returned it.

    Doesn't work with dock, at all. It advertised for at home or on the go (which suggests you can use it with the dock). Don't recommend at all, am going to return it.

    It charges the switch, but whenever you put the switch on the dock, it does not work. I can’t hook it up to the TV to play. Extremely disappointed. DO NOT BUY THIS! Spend a few extra dollars to buy the Nintendo switch name brand. I guarantee it’ll be worth it.

    This cable will not charge your system while docked in the cradle and connected to the tv. Doesnt say anything about it on the package until you buy it, open it up, and read the instructions.

    They should make it clear on the package that this charger won't let you use your switch with your TV. I bought it as a replacement for the included charger that I lost only to get home and find that it won't work.
