Using Third Party Chargers

QC 2.0 & 3.0 = Supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge. Useful if your phone supports Quick Charge, otherwise disregard. Switch does not support Quick Charge.

Travel Friendly = Small and light, removable cable, prongs fold in.

Check your laptop’s power requirements before buying a charger for both it and the Switch.

USB-IF certification comes from the USB Implementers Forum, the creators of USB specifications. It denotes a device fully meets their standards. Lack of certification does not mean a device is bad. See the Switch Chargers FAQ for more details.
