Hello guys! There is an ad that has been all over my Facebook page, which is a new dock for Nintendo switch... It's called Genki and here is it's Kickstarter page:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/humanthings/genki-covert-dock

We have seen many different docks where majority of them have bricked the console due to the charger etc. It looks really convenient since it's small.

But do you think this one will also brick the console?

I'm a bit skeptical towards this and any other third party dock. I know it's not right to take a condescending attitude towards these things but they hardly ever can be trusted, given all of the brick risks associated with them.

You're better off getting a dock replacement case wherein you put the original dock's components into a smaller case.

Do yourself a favor and buy a dock shell replacement. Any nintendo update could potentially end your switch. Its not worth even a small risk imo.

    Think this Nyko PowerPak+ in my OG 3DS is starting to expand ever so slightly 😨 what a shame, to have to go back to an OG size battery soon.
