The Dongii is a new kind of charger with USB type A and C ports - as well as an HDMI port to connect a Nintendo Switch to the nearest TV. It is described as equipped with up-to-date GaN technology and capable of up to 65 watt (W) charging. It has been launched on Kickstarter, where it is available as a reward.
Deirdre O Donnell,

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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
