Nintendo Switch AC Adapter
Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough home video game console. It not only connects to a TV at home, but it also instantly transforms into an on-the-go handheld using its 6.2-inch screen. For the first time, players can enjoy a full home-console experience anytime, anywhere.
The screen includes capacitive multi-touch capabilities for compatible games. Battery life can last for more than six hours, but will vary depending on the software and usage conditions. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be played for roughly three hours on a single charge.
While away from home, Nintendo Switch can be charged by plugging the AC adapter into the console's USB Type-C connector.

It's not as small as some cell phone wall chargers but not too big. It's too wide to fit inside some of the switch carrying cases. It's smaller then a post it note. I found this official charger can charge the battery up while playing a game like zelda at the same time. Some 3rd party ones cannot. An extra is useful for portability so you don't have to unplug your original one from the dock.
I tried a set of 5-star reviewed cables and found my switch to be running out of batteries even while plugged in. Then I started reading about how many bad usb-c cables there are out there and I realized this adapter probably wasn't a bad impulse buy. So, I got it back out and started using it again. Sure it sucks I can't just plug a simple USB-C to USB-A cable into any usb-AC adapter and run my switch on that, or plug the same cable into my laptop while I'm on a plane. However, I don't want to damage my devices, so until I hear of updated standards, or something better, I'll stick with this.
This AC adapter has not failed once since I got the switch, and I've used it a lot. So, my experience coupled with the info that's out there compels me to stick to this adapter, despite inconveniences.
Another thing of note: if you aren't doing it already, you should start filtering amazon reviews with The Review Index. There's a plug-in for chrome, or you can paste in the url to the product on their site. This helps you to filter out unverified purchases, and to see if a high percentage of unverified purchase reviews are 5-star and written by review spammers: folks who have hundreds or thousands of reviews, are paid to write dozens of 5-star reviews DAILY and their accounts typically show an average review of 4.75 stars or greater. That's how I found out that most of the USB-C to USB-A cables on amazon are actually bad products, made to look good by hundred of fake 5-star reviews.
Amazon is awesome - still my favorite place to shop, but it's better with The Review Index.
My Switch is docked at the TV and my other adapter is as mobile as the switch. Makes everything just a little bit easier to go between mobile and tv while charging.
I recommend this and the Pro controller as my two must have accessories
Or maybe I want to have a charger at my place and one at work.
This is one answer! Works great for me, no real problems, except:
1) I would really prefer detachable cables. A wall-wart brick with a USB-C port and a USB-C to USB-C cable would be more flexible.
2) It's a little expensive for such a low-wattage power brick.
Works great, charges quick, doesn't over heat, and satisfaction all around.
the best price at market (best buy, waltmart, game planet, etc)
Fast ship even at international delivery.
It's a must have for nintendo switch if you want to play with the dock and don't want to plug/unplug the adapter.
