I heard people saying the Nintendo Switch Dock is completely unnecessary if you buy a USB Type-C HDMI + Charge adapter that looks like this:



From the amazon page it said:

Replaces your Nintendo Switch Dock with far more portability and ease of use. (Transfer Nintendo Switch game Max resolution: 4K/30fps).
Completely solved the overheating issues of the original dock. It needs a strong charger (like official Nintendo charger) to work.
Charging your devices and transfer data at the same time, save your time you can do more with it.
3 need ports to the Type-C version, HDMI,USB Type-C, USB3.0.
Ultra slim and small, one of the perfect gadgets to travel with, giving you more compatibility, no need to pack several adapters, free your bag and saving your time to find the right adapter.

This will work the same way as the dock, but way smaller and convenient.

I am going to get one and try it out.

It's probably the exact same thing as the Dock.

If someone tells me the one you posted for sure works like the dock, I am buying one! I want one for when I take the switch to someone's house but not wanting to unhook everything.

Yes I got the HDMI adapter and it works exactly what I expected, it completely replaced the Dock, and it's so small that it is perfect for travel, at home it takes much less space than the dock. I'd recommend getting it, it also gives you an extra USB slot, maybe the Switch will work with a wireless mouse or keyboard? I may give it a try later.
