Anyone got any good options for a second dock? The official one is so expensive and I basically want a second one for a guest room we have a TV in that is a much better space to do Ring Fit in.

Cheaper the better but not so cheap it will blow up my Switch....

I solved that problem by buying my girlfriend a Switch then moving in with her

...this may not be the cheapest approach

I can confirm it is not.

Does the things you slot in still taste foul when you lick them?

It's not much cheaper, but the Genki Covert Dock is brill. It's basically a big power brick with a USB-C, USB-A and HDMI port on it, so you can play/charge the Switch on a TV without actually docking it. It has a swappable pinout too, so you can travel abroad with it.

Unless you're just after a proper dock, in which case I'm out of ideas.

I picked up a used official dock off ebay in the end for about £35. Was still a bit paranoid about the "third party docks brick Switches" stories but I don't think there's been many cases like that recently

Id probably be happy with £35 even second hand. Will give eBay a check
