I looked into that when I first got mine, but couldn't find a definitive answer.

First thing is that it needs to be USB-C. And the Switch apparently requires 15V/2.6A to charge.

Inconclusive info here:

I personally wouldn't risk it unless someone verifies a safe setup.


I use a portable charger, it works fine. It's the charging cable I was most worried about, which is why I bought it in-store rather than online (dodgy cables can do bad things I am told).

It's not as quick as charging from mains, but it does charge when the Switch is on sleep. When playing the battery still goes down, but slower than without the charger I believe.

So... Rocket League is blooming great, isn’t it?!?

Played five games :toot: .
0 goals and 0 assists :( .

Terrific stuff, though, and I’ll be back for more tonight.

I often plug my Switch in to either a normal phone charger or my laptop via a USB cable. It just charges more slowly than using the official kit. I also sometimes plug my phone into the Switch cable and it hasn't broken yet.

(Amusingly the battery will drain, albeit slowly, if you play it plugged in to a normal phone charger -- the power it's getting isn't quite enough I guess!)

Fun fact (that I personally verified) - if you plug a Switch into a macbook, it will actually charge the macbook rather than the Switch!

I've ended up with a spare copy of LA Noire that I can't return. £25 delivered? Sold.

Looks like WWE 2k18 is coming on the 21st. Less that a weeks notice. Already paid it off on shopto so it looks like I'm going to be swamped with switch games.

Edit: As at the end of August, the game was due “later this year”. Could it be *another* November game for Switch? The release schedule is now looking crazy!


It’s arriving in the eShop on 23 November at £19.99. Tempted... albeit the Switch release schedule has gone crazy. In a good way :toot: .

I'm looking forward to meeting up with Captain Viridian again on Friday. Plus, of course, the terrific tunes :toot: .

I can't play VVVVVV because it literally looks like a Teletext page.

Welcome, plastic... welcome to the mighty Switch Squad :toot: . What game(s) did you pick up, dude?

It is superb, Karl. The gameplay is ace and the soundtrack is sensational. It's one of my favourite games on 3DS :) .
