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.
