The Dongii purports to combine 65W GaN charging with a Nintendo Switch dock
Better DiGi has released its new take on the Nintendo Switch dock onto Kickstarter. Unlike the official model, it is far more compact, looking much more like a typical wall-charger than the original. Its maker attributes this to the incorporation of gallium nitride (GaN), which can indeed make a power accessory particularly light and small.
The Dongii connects a Switch to a screen via its HDMI port, while also charging via its USB type A or C ports. It also apparently has a variant with an inbuilt Bluetooth adapter, which is required by the console to connect to any desired wireless audio products.
In addition, the device is divided into 2 parts, 1 of which has the GaN tech and ports. This can be detached and installed onto any other USB type C charger in order to "upgrade" it.
This new kind of gaming/charging solution starts at US$27 for the standalone dock on its crowdfunding platform. It has attracted approximately 60% of its $10000 goal thus far (correct at time of writing) with 29 days left to go.
