somebody know if there are any risks in using the Nintendo Switch High Speed Car Charger by HORI Officially Licensed by Nintendo with an android LG phone (LG G5) that has a usb c input?
Forgot to mention it in my reply but if you are looking for a car charger then I suggest the Hori one: [link]
I've only used it twice for about 8 hours total but both times it has worked perfectly. The cord is a nice length.
Hori Officially Licensed Car Charger Unfortunately it's out of stock at most reputable retailers. And the only one in stock on amazon is marked up a bit.
If you can find one. Alternate option would be a USB-A to USB-C cable that can run 3A with a suitable car adapter.
Although the cigarette lighter/power source in cars provide up to 12V, an adapter you plug into it won't supply 12V; the adapter will take in 12V but it'll only output whatever voltage the adapter will output.
Depending on the USB adapter you're using, you'll get different charge speeds. The officially licensed Hori Car Charger, for example, will charge your Switch just fine at 5V/3A.
You'll be fine with whatever you use but if you'd like the fastest possible charging option in the car, you'll want to find something that charges at 5V/3A.
My main thing is that I'd rather have two cords. I'd rather have one cord, and two abapters plus I want to get a six foot cord. A folding prong would be nice too though. I guess I can wait a while before I buy my chargers, but I was planning on building a custom carrying case so I wanted to get everything that will go in it first.
I'm pretty sure the power draw is less while undocked. Maybe just on the higher end of tablet requirments. I would be good to get some clearer information. The I would think the HORI car charger might be a better example of the portable requiremnets, and as far as I can tell that can only do 5V.
Please link me to a source that shows the AC Adapter outputs that amount to the Switch.
Also you fail to realise that as this adapter is designed to have sufficient power for the dock as well (and also to cover the ports etc on it), that what you have advised may be inaccurate.
I refer to [link]
5V 3A max draw, listed as a "Speed Charger", so should charge the Switch quickly.
The official car charger is rated 5V @ 3A which seems reasonable considering the size of the internal battery and the playtime on a charge. (Source: [link])
The point in the presentation where they mentioned external batteries: To me it sounded like Nintendo is planning to release their own or at least officially licensed batteries. If that's the case, their specs should be the reference.
I just replied to another guy on this thread who was being a jerk to me.
This is rated at 5V 3A, if you can get a 5V unit of 2.4A or higher (3A is usually using QuickCharge spec) then you should be fine
i believe probably a 5V 2A will be fine as well, but charge slowly. My calculations were worse case and also as you said many assumptions.
I also just saw that Hori's official car adapter is 5V 3Amp output
The official Hori Nintendo Switch car charger is $15.
Does anyone have experience with this Hori car charger? I have a 18 hour car ride coming up in a few weeks and I want some Mario Kart on the way.
Nintendo Switch High Speed Car Charger by Hori
Nekteck USB Type-C Car Charger 45W PD
This charger is the official Nintendo car charger and it works very well.
Go with the Nintendo Switch car charger. Fast charging and a long cable length. Has dropped a few times on amazon to $12-13 too.
Yes they make Switch DC adapters
But you could also use a USB-A to USB-C cable
For the price right now, you can't beat the official Nintendo Switch Car Charger. It's $12.88 at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZAUPD6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A1AWZK7BCK8DMB&psc=1
For future reference, check the power output on licensed Nintendo chargers. For instance, this one shows 5 volt / 3000mA (3 amps). Does that car charger output 5 volts / 3 amps?
we have a ton of usb chargers, lets provide a USB-C connector and rebrand it. it's a "charger", it "charges" no refunds haha. look at the chart here for PD 2.0:
based on this picture here:
if thats really the switch power adapter, then most likely in tablet mode it will draw 5V/1.5A like most other mobile devices, but when the same adapter is used while switch is on the dock, the dock probably will draw 15V/2.6A to ensure that both the dock and the switch has enough power. I bet if you check the power coming from the USB-C connector on the dock where the switch plugs into it will have changed it to 5V/1.5A or something similar.
the HORI car charger here:
is rated for 5V/3A most likely whats going on here is that the Switch can actually charge at 3A for a faster charge. i doubt HORI would make something that doesnt make sense since they are a very trusted 3rd party provider.
now you may be asking why not just make it the chargers 3A to begin with. if anything, it's going to make the device more hotter when charging faster.
For the car charger: [link]
There's another one from PDP on Amazon but apparently won't be released until June!
The Hori Car Charger licensed by Nintendo only delivers 5V 3A, so any powerbank with a USB Type-C port (which delivers 5V 3A) should also work.
The car charger for Nintendo switch Hori is 5V 3amp [link]
I would suggest you match that output in a power bank.... There are not that many that do output 5V 3.0Amp via usb c. Lower current output ones will charge, but do so slower.
I'd recommend looking at the Anker 20,000
Theres also an aukey one that's 30,000 mah, but its heavier and bigger also I'm not sure about how well it conforms to usb c spec.
I did some very rough estimate calculations based on Nintendo's estimates on battery life and charging in post if your interested.
I picked this one up for use in the car, otherwise I recommend using the one it comes with for best performance. A MacBook charger might also be sufficient.
My guess is at the very max 5V 3A
The car charger for Switch from HORI advertises that it does fast charge... so Switch should support it shouldn't it? Or am I reading this wrong?
