    Simple, basic charger.

    While trying to find a backup charger for TV mode, I came across this charger. Being 5 bucks cheaper I decided to purchase and try it while traveling. Unfortunately, I connected it to my travel dock and I find that this charger does not support TV mode. Furthermore, if you play a heavy game like Zelda or Doom, the battery will still drain as the charger can't seen to charge fast enough.

    This package does charge in a car, and it does charge the handheld from an AC outlet, but it does not the console. Unfortunately, the outer packaging does not disclose this fact. One does not learn of the limitation until one opens the box and reads the fine print (by which point I had purchased the equipment). I would not recommend for persons who need extra charger for the console. Otherwise I would recommend.

    From the first time I used this charging cable, it would only work if it was held at the perfect angle on the wall charger. I think they sent it with a bad cable, because my USB-C charging cable that I used for my cell phone, worked with the car charger to charge my Switch.

    I like the length of the cord and that I can use the charger in the car or even in a home outlet. However, the charge is actually quite slow and I found that it didn't really keep up with how quickly the battery was dying when I was charging and playing. So that wasn't great.

    I liked the idea of being able to use this charger in the car or in the home. It worked for a month and then stopped charging. I returned it and bought the one from Nintendo instead.

    I bought this pack thinking the power cable would work with the Nintendo Switch dock...it doesn’t. It’s strictly a wall charger, you can’t use it to play on your tv.

    Very slow charging and does not work with base only console itself. So you won’t be able to charge while playing on your tv.
