Nintendo Switch third-party dock bricking explained by an engineer

There is a rather big market for third-party Nintendo Switch accessories but the one thing that continues to worry Switch owners is the charging dock.

The latter has largely been blamed on Nintendo's implementation of the USB-C Power Delivery feature which is believed to be non-compliant with the standard spec.
