Hi guys!
I'm looking to buy a Replacement Dock case for my switch.

I've read that they have much better airflow compared to the Original Dock since they are a lot smaller...

Which one do you guys recommend?
I've been searching and found this one; https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07V5L46MG
Do you know if it's any good??

I've also found another called BASSTOP, but I can't buy that since I don't live in the US, I live in Europe, so it's either amazon.co.uk or another website that ships to Europe without any taxes etc.
I can even buy one from AliExpress if that's the case :)

I was even thinking to buy JumpGate dock from this website: https://skullnco.com/collections/switch-gripcase/products/jumpgate-for-nintendo-switch
But I've read that third party docks might (high chance) brick you console :/

Which replacement dock case do you guys use? :)

I haven't bought one myself, but from what I've read, one thing to look out for is that some models have a power led (or space for the original one, I'm not sure), and some don't, so if that's something you want be sure to look out for it.

Any replacement shell is fine, but I would recommend basstop, as for third party dock if the dock supply the wrong voltage that the switch is asking for, you brick your switch. People been running into problems jump gate dock also.

Probably best to re-shell your existing dock. The Switch seems to use a proprietary power delivery standard and I've seen far too many reports of bricks caused by 3rd party docks.

    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release

    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will

    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy

    @SylverReZ I read that non-binary people identify as a blend of male and female. The point is i think i'm a blend of those and thus non binary
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Non-binary people are those who don't identify themselves exclusively as male or female.

    @SylverReZ, and thus that would make me non binary since i feel like a blend of both male and female
