    Hi guys, so i need a wall charger for my Switch cause the original Adapter is plugged into the dock.

    Because of my country i need one that is on amazon, other pages are kinda hard specially because shipping, it takes forever.

    Anyway, i want it mostly for my travels, i just ordered a Power bank, now i need a good wall charger.

    I have seen a couple that i like but i want to hear personal experience so i can confirm that they work.

    Give me a hand guys, i would really appreciate it.

    Any USB-C cable. You can just go to your local department store and pick one.

    Get a wall USB adapter that supports 2.1+amps and 20w+ so it charges faster then playing, 5w will be useless

    Thanks guys, but i would love if you just dont link some random adapter. I would like to know if you use them and if they work. For example in those pages some people said they are good but others said that it didnt work.

    The issue is that it's possible for something to be 100%. You can buy a 100$ charger but it can break on you the next day. Then, the next day, you buy a 10$ charger thinking it'll suffice for your next trip, but in reality, it lasts you 5 years. Trust me, this happens with everyone, with a myriad of things.

    Yeah that is true but with higher quality is likely to last longer.

    The one that i like the most is the Pleson one. I have never heard of that brand and that kinda makes me doubt.

    Do you use any other charger for your Switch besides the original adapter?

    I don't have a switch, sadly. I do have USB Type-C enabled devices. However, the best thing possible to obtain, which, I would use, the official USB Type C Adapter from Nintendo themselves. (Which I would use.) However, Amazon does not sell them. So, I am not sure what third party charger I would use. You'd need to ask someone else other than me. Sorry.

    Why not just do the easy thing and unplug the charger from the dock when you are out and about. It's pointless being away from home and having your dock and charger back at home take the charger and leave the dock behind its that easy lol.
