So I'm not a fan of the dock. I'm not really having any of the problems many people are having like scratching (well, I took steps to ensure it would never happen) but I really hate dealing with that dock. The solution seems fairly obvious: open it up and take out the components. What I'd like to have is something where I just plug a cable into the bottom of the Switch which I can then just lay flat on a table. The tricky part is mostly that USB connector. From the images I've seen it's on a pretty flimsy ribbon cable I think. In particular, I'm wondering just what the USB connector needs. I have an old USB type C cable I bought for a 2-in-1 that turned out to be unable to charge from USB type C (yeah, the irony of even having that sort of connector then is palpable. It does mean there's one more USB host port I can use via a type C host connector, but there's zero benefit of it being type C instead of MicroUSB like the other that I can tell.) However, it likely doesn't officially support some of the latest stuff. What I'd really like to do is to minimally modify things here. I originally had an idea of taking the components out and sticking them in a simple project enclosure (this thing seems to be smaller than a Raspberry Pi actually, so that part should be easy) but then I had an even better idea: just having a USB cable running out through a small hole in the original dock. Right now I'm just not sure if I'm brave enough to do this yet. I'd hope third party docks will show up eventually, but initial ones are likely to be spotty and unsafe. Buying a first party dock right now is basically impossible. I think I saw one locally, but the price was off the scale ridiculous given that it's mostly just a USB hub and HDMI output. I'm not even seeing them available on Amazon and the like (the closes thing I found was a ridiculously overpriced metal bracket that snaps around the dock to screw it into the wall so you can mount the system up on a wall. There are surely better ways to do this at that price and it's not a dock, just the metal bracket.) So I'll admit modifying mine makes me a bit leery. I'd definitely like to know just how much it would take to actually do it before I even thought of messing with it.
