What Charger To Get

I sort USB-C chargers by how fast they’ll charge the Nintendo Switch. But faster is not always better. Also consider price, size/weight, includes a USB-C cable, and what your actual needs are. An Excellent charger works as well as a Dock Supporting charger in handheld mode. A Fair charger is usually cheaper, but doesn’t include a cable.
