Got Nyko Switch dock (50$). Switch got stuck on logo after 5.0 update after being docked on it. “Repaired” (they sent another one) .. was working fine, till it touched that Nyko Switch dock and then same symptoms, have to send for repair again. Wouldn’t have bought 3rd party, but Nintendo accessories are ridiculously expensive (120$). Nyko apparently released an update for the dock firmware… but I doubt that I’ll test it (3 weeks waiting per repair).

Does this mean that I can’t charge my switch with a USB c cable?

Let’s all pay respects to my save files. Bricking sucks.

Brilliant video Gabe(SF). For peace of mind guys just stick with the official Nintendo accessories until further notice, keep your Switches safe. 4th Edge Out!!

The first party dock it self kind of kill the switch i couldnt on my switch for 3-4 days and had to let it cool also i found out that in that te period if i tried to charge the battery would get hot but the console itself wont on there is an easy fix going into maintainence mode

Had bought an Amazonbasic’s switch ac adapter. Haven’t even used it yet, but just sending it back and getting the official first party one to be safe. Don’t want to risk it with how big of a problem this has become.
