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.
