Hi,

I have question since I wanna test Android and Linux builds on my Switch. I saw information on release notes of Linux/Android builds that they implemented PD drivers. So can I use one of mini docks with Switch?

All of those 3rd party docks work with non-modded Switch consoles so I would assume that the Switch doesn't know the difference.
I would recommend getting a brand 3rd party dock as there have been some power issues with cheap knock-offs.

That was my question. I know that Switch is non pure PD, but I found info in release notes of Android/Linux builds that they have PD driver.

False. All of those 3rd party docks do NOT work with the Switch, only some do. Also, Nintendo can release a firmware update at any time that breaks compatibility with 3rd party docks.
