A new Switch accessory is being released in Japan later this month, and it’s one that a few people have been hoping for. Even better is that it’s an official accessory, so it’s guaranteed to be compatible. This accessory is a USB AC adapter. It’s like the power bricks you get with a phone.
While it’s great that this accessory is coming, there’s a catch: it’s only for Switch accessories. This adapter has been designed to charge things like the Pro Controller and Joy-Con Charging Grip via a wall outlet. This means that it more than likely won’t provide sufficient wattage to charge the Switch console itself. If it does, it probably won’t do it at a very fast speed, especially if you choose to play the system while it’s charging.
If you’re still interested in picking one up, check out this Amazon Japan listing. The USB AC adapter is set to release on April 26 for 982 yen ($9.19 USD).
