About this deal

Definitely an improvement over the bad old days of weird-sized barrel connectors of dubious polarity, though. That said, there's no guarantee that the result of that negotiation will be that the device charges as fast as it's designed to. Oh, and the Switch’s implementation of USB-PD means that it also can accept 9V and 12V USB-PD chargers just fine (previous assumptions that chargers needed to support the 15V of the Nintendo charger are incorrect).

The Switch adapter will happily charge my phone, tablet, eReader, etc and I have used it as my only charger on trips where I don't bring a laptop. In conclusion, this replacement charger for is an excellent choice for gamers who are looking for a quick, efficient, and reliable way to charge their gaming console.

Well i finally found the car charger for it and yes you were corect they do make a car charger for it. It is the only listed change between the original model Switch and the newer model released in August 2019.

Usually for chargers, voltage is assumed to be fixed and will be delivered regardless of what your device wants. I’ve had a little more experience with the USB-C and USB-PD ecosystem, having already gone through a year and a half of accessory growing pains with owning the Google Nexus 6P and Pixel XL. My current thought is that USB C has all this charging intelligence, so the Switch should be able to tell the brick what it wants and the brick will supply. However if you do want to find a charger that will charge while playing, Nintendo probably has the best solution since most car ports are only 1-2. Besides power usage how well the Switch draws power is also a factor in how long it takes to charge.It shouldn't matter what PD or fast charging protocol Nintendo or OnePlus would use, they should all be backwards compatible to legacy slow-charging and trickle charge from any type-C charger ever made, which is a lifesaver in an emergency and is why the type-C connector is a godsend.
