    Just took a look at the bottom of the dock and noticed something interesting. Power input is listed as 15V 2.6 A as expected but power output is listed as 15V 1.2A. I speculated on this before as the USB ports also need power.

    It depends on how many amps the Switch can actually draw but the dock may actually limit the charging speed of the Switch.

    can the screen be charged also outside of the dock yes?

    for instance, i can use the charger of my nexus 6p (it's USB type C) on the switch handheld yep?

    i only hope that the joy cons will last long (and if they are attached to the screen, it's constantly charging yes? and if so isn't this affecting the charge of the actual handheld?)
