    No because the official charger is 15V at 2.6A so u will just be trickle charging all the time

    not good to use with the dock(when the switch is docked) as that needs MORE power then just the switch

    dock has to get
    power for the charging the switch
    power for 3x usb ports
    power for HDMI


    i have a 5v - 2.1A external battery, it works fine (with just the switch)
    it might be a slow charge when playing, but it works

    Why not just buy another switch charger?
