Can You Use USB C to HDMI Adapter For Nintendo Switch?

USB C to HDMI adapters work with the Nintendo Switch and connect to any HDMI TV. They are cheaper than the Switch dock, more portable, and also keeps your Switch charged whilst docked, they also work for laptops and other devices like televisions.

The switch dock needs a 15V power supply that can deliver 39W the Switch can only pull 2A at 7.5 W so it needs a lot of power whilst docked.

Whilst docked the Switch needs a 39W+USB-C power supply that can operate at 15V this is hard to find but the AC adapter included in the Switch(see it on Amazon) is your best option for powering the Switch whilst docked.

The switch charger has two modes it power the switch under, undocked mode, and docked mode. When the Switch is docked it ‘switches'(see what I did) to 1080p so it needs extra money and Switch runs it’s GPU and CPU at a higher mode.
