1. Nintendo Switch Docks

To charge your Nintendo Switch, you will need to use the AC adapter that comes with the device. To begin charging, connect the AC adapter to the Nintendo Switch dock.

Once the adapter is connected to the dock, you can then insert the console into the dock to begin charging.

When you place the console in the dock, the TV output LED on the dock (shown in the image) will briefly turn on.

However, the light on the dock is not an indicator of the charging status of the console. It is only meant to show that there is video output being sent to a TV screen.

You can also use the adjustable charging stand which helps you to stand and charge the Nintendo Switch at a better angle.

It has been observed that charging the Nintendo Switch directly from the AC adapter can sometimes cause overheating issues in certain Nintendo Switch models.

3. Joy-Con charging Grip

To charge your Joy-Con controllers, you can attach them to a Joy-Con charging grip and connect the grip to a Nintendo Switch dock using a USB charging cable.

The charging grip comes with a USB charging cable, so you don’t need to purchase one separately. To use the charging grip, you will also need an AC adapter, which is included with the console. The AC adapter should be connected to the Nintendo Switch dock.

Alternatively, you can also use a separate Nintendo USB AC adapter to charge the Joy-Con controllers by connecting the adapter to a USB charging cable.


4 – Charge Joy-Cons Directly

To charge your Joy-Con controllers, attach them to a Joy-Con charging grip and then connect the AC adapter that came with your Nintendo Switch console to the charging grip.


We hope that the above-mentioned methods will help you charge your Nintendo Switch console with ease.
