Nintendo Switch Can Make Use of the Third Party AmazonBasics Dual Voltage Switch AC Charger for USB Power Delivery Fast Charging

The Dual Voltage Switch AC Charger was sold by AmazonBasics as a third party USB Type-C AC adapter for the Nintendo Switch. The adapter supports USB Power Delivery based charging for either the Switch dock or console when connected to each respective USB Type-C charging port.  

The AmazonBasics Dual Voltage Switch AC Charger came bundled with a handy user manual. 

Similar to the Nintendo Switch AC Adapter and Insignia Switch Dock Kit's AC adapter, the AmazonBasics Dual Voltage Switch AC Charger also offers up to 39W charging when connected to the Switch dock's USB Type-C port for stationary gaming or the Switch console's USB Type-C port for mobile gaming. Here the charger claims to support 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), and 39 watts (15 volts @ 2.6 amps) power profiles.

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, we are able to verify that the following fixed PDO's of 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), and 39 watts (15 volts @ 2.6 amps) are supported by the AmazonBasics Dual Voltage Switch AC Charger for charging. Note some compliance failures were observed.
