    I tried searching for a post that covers this but I got tired of that fast so I will post this anyway.

    my problem was I have too many devices/consoles around my tv and the switch dock was another annoying shaped thing so I used a usb-c female to male cable to hide the dock behind the tv and just have a usb cable under the front to connect the switch to the tv.

    the cable cost less than $5 and solved the problem and now I don't have to worry about scratching the switch console sliding it into the dock and if you are worried about heat you could put the switch on a laptop cooler.

    if this has been posted before... cool, if not I hope this helps someone else with the space issue I had.
    the same cable also works on the galaxy s8 dex dock, that thing is a pain because you cant dock the phone with the case on it so this type of cable solved that issue for me too ;)

    This has been well known since just a few days after the console released

    This has been known for ages and I do plan on getting this cable myself but just never feel like it.

    If you don't want the screen to get scratched at all then you'll need to apply a tempered screen glass protector if you haven't already.

    well the half meter one i ordered from UK ebay came and it works, its pretty lose in the dock so if you wiggle the cable it gets ejected by the spring loaded part inside. I would opt for the full 1 meter at least if anyone else is going down this route.
