About this deal

This fast charger features a 15-volt output, which is much faster than the standard 5-volt charger that comes with the Switch console .

For the first time, consumers aren’t tied down to one-off Nintendo charging connectors (between the original Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DS Lite, and the Nintendo DSi… there were three different charging connectors across six years). For USB-C, the amount of current the Switch will pull is limited to 2A, despite that the vast majority (if not all) USB-C chargers are rated for 5V 3A. Then I see the car chargers are going to have 5 volts, so how is that suppose to charge a 15 volt system?

actually the deal with USB C power supplies on startup is considerably more complicated than that, and while they start at 5V the 900 mA is usually not the right current value.

And you can plug a power strip into the inverter's outlet to plug in more things at a time, just try to keep it under 175 Watts or you will blow the cigarette lighter fuse in your car. That said, there's no guarantee that the result of that negotiation will be that the device charges as fast as it's designed to. The console itself is quite flexible, accepting most USB-C or USB-A chargers that offer 10W or more. As mentioned in the introduction, one of the biggest sources of consumer confusion around charging the Switch is that it does not take all the power a charger might support.You wont find many car chargers which give you more than 36W USB PD output (12V/3A profile) out there. I want to reduce the number of chargers I travel with, and I'd love to not have to unplug the Nintendo one from the entertainment spaghetti every time. But as the power demands over USB rise with laptops and now game consoles adopting it for power, so goes the range of power/current consumption possibilities.

That 15v will be stepped down in the Switch and/or Dock to 5v where the track lengths are short and its easy to run extra tracks to different components. All USB-C chargers start out by supplying 5V with a 900mA current limit, then negotiate upward from there. FOR SWITCH LITE CHARGER】 Compatible with Switch Lite and Switch, A perfect replacement/backup to your OEM Switch lite charger. Best answer: The charger and the device will negotiate and (usually) pick the highest voltage/current that the device and the charger can handle.For the sake of transparency, I’ll include any odd exceptions or edge cases here, and update this section as we learn about more.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Evan Elm The reason they chose 15v is because its hard (and against USB specification) to push more than 2. Usually for chargers, voltage is assumed to be fixed and will be delivered regardless of what your device wants.The power usage of the Nintendo Switch helps determine how long you can play away from a wall outlet. How much power the Switch requires to operate varies by settings, game, and even your location in the game. For if you use it with a power supply that supports less than 2A (like a computer USB port or the Switch Dock’s USB port) you will risk an overcurrent situation which may damage your equipment. Also if the engine is not on you will be draining the battery like leaving your lights on so watch out. This long cable is also perfect for those who like to play their Switch in bed, or for anyone who wants to be able to play while their Switch is charging.
