What's an OTG cable? It's a male USB-C, micro USB, or lightning to female USB adapter or something similar (i.e. HDMI, ethernet, etc). Essentially a USB drive reader for your phone with many other uses.

Can I plug my OTG into a Switch Lite bypassing the Switch dock and allowing it to output to TV?
I have tested this using a Switch original model and it works, given an external power supply is present for the OTG.

I would like to buy a Lite because it is cheaper, however I need to get around the docked mode and non-detachable joy-con problems.

You need a regular model (V1 or V2) or an OLED switch if you want to dock output to a TV. Switch lite no dock output.

You can't trick the system into outputting through the dock if it was never manufactured to do so.

    If the store has a no gun policy and they don't leave I think it's an arrestable offensive police sadly never show the full story

    that indiana guy who shot the mall shooter apparently was not committing any crimes - he had the gun concealed and so of course no one asked him to leave

    an offense is only committed once they verbalize that you need to go after seeing your gun

    I'm not sure what that has to do with anything, florida (where this took place) is 100x more known for keeping it in the family
