FAQs Nintendo Switch Dock Set

Is it acceptable to always have the Switch docked?

The battery won’t be harmed if you leave the console on the dock overnight or hooked directly into the AC adapter once the battery is fully charged.

Is it important which way you dock the Switch?

Insert the console into the dock with the screen of the console facing the same direction as the front panel of the dock. The console screen will turn off while it is docked.

For how long can the Switch be docked?

Nintendo claims that the Switch can operate for up to 6 hours without a docking station, albeit the length of time depends on the game you’re playing.

How does the Switch dock operate?

The user can watch the Nintendo Switch gameplay on television via the Nintendo Switch dock. This device adds a second dock so that the Nintendo Switch may be moved between different televisions with ease. For a complete setup, an AC adapter and HDMI cable are required.

Can switches operate independently of a docking station?

A USB-C to HDMI converter is required if you wish to connect your Switch to your TV without utilizing the dock. Fortunately, purchasing one of these will cost much less than paying for an authorized replacement dock.

Can the Switch be charged when docked?

The Nintendo Switch dock that comes with the consoles [HEG-001/HAC-001] can be used to charge either one.

Can I get my Switch two docks?

You can, indeed. To play in TV Mode on any of your televisions if you have more than one, simply move your console between the docks by connecting a Nintendo Switch dock to each one.

How can I tell if my Switch dock is charging?

The charge indication is it visible? Look for the charging icon in the top-right corner of the screen when your console is on. The light on the dock does not indicate charging. (It turns on when a TV screen receives video output.)

What is the battery life of the Switch?

The battery life ranges from 4.5 to 9 hours for the Nintendo Switch, model number: HAC-001(-01) [product serial number starts with “XKW”]. The battery life of the Nintendo Switch Lite, HDH-001 model, ranges from 3 to 7 hours.

How can I tell if the Switch dock is defective?

You can borrow a dock from a friend and try plugging your Switch and TV in it to confirm whether you have a bad dock or not. Remember Solution 2 in case your friend’s Dock also has trouble connecting to your Switch or TV. If this happens, there may be a problem with the settings.
