Kevin Kenson reviews Covert Dock

A portable console deserves a portable dock.

We developed Covert Dock to play on any screen, anytime, anywhere.

All-in-one design replaces both the original dock and charger.

10X smaller than the original dock

By replacing Silicon with cutting-edge Gallium Nitride technology from Navitas we’re able to provide 3x higher power density in a compact form factor.

Worried about bricking? Read why our dock is different here.

if you're looking for a portable way to play Nintendo Switch games on a big screen, a new kickstarter project from accessory maker Human Things, creators of a Switch Blutooth audio dongle, might be just what you need.

None of them promises as much functionality as Human Things' new Genki CovertDock in Such a compact package.

A Great Buy to Travel With

I like the compact design of this little dock. It works well. It outputs the same video and audio quality as the official dock. I notice no difference in resolution, frame rate, or input lag.

While this is to the Covert Dock's benefit, it also doesn't help it stand out as, perhaps, an option with an upscaled output. I don't really care that much, myself, but it may be noted. This design can be circumvented with a USB hub, but again, it's another noticeable change.

All in all, I'm glad I bought this. It's easy to travel with and works perfectly well. But it has no bonuses, and it does have a slight downgrade, considering the single USB 2 port. However, the benefit of taking it anywhere easily outweighs these little complaints. Anyone who buys this, I trust you'll enjoy it!

Also, the Covert Dock only has one USB 2 slot. This is a downgrade from the official dock, which has three total, but it's understandable, given the compact size of Genki's product.

Wonderful & ingenious product!

Loved how compact the Covert Dock is and how much easier it is to travel with it instead of the stock Switch dock that comes from Nintendo.

Combined with the Genki Shadowcast makes playing the switch anywhere & anytime even easier to achieve!

Exactly what I needed

Works as well as advertised. Having this for travel or moving the Switch between rooms will be very helpful. Kind of can't believe it, it was worth the wait.

This would be perfect if it included ethernet

For what it is, this dock is great. However, with Ethernet it would be amazing.

More questions? We’ve got them covered.
Can I use the Covert Dock as just a Nintendo Switch charger and play in handheld mode?

Yes, the Covert Dock acts like a normal fast charger when it doesn’t detect a TV connected to the HDMI port. So you can continue to play in handheld mode charged.

Does this support the Gamecube controller hub for Smash Bros?

Yes, it works with the Gamecube controller hub, however you can only use one of the two USB plugs hat is built-in which sacrifices the rumble feature. We went to several Smash tournaments and we found that competitive players generally turned off the rumble feature but if desired can be used with a USB hub.

Will this work in my country?

We designed the Covert Dock to be international, first and foremost with global certs and 100-240V supporting 50Hz and 60Hz. Our global ops kit is the best solution supporting 150+ countries and more compact than the mechanism found in popular Apple chargers.

Will this work with ethernet adapters?

Yes, it works with Switch compatible ethernet adapters.

Can I use this with a capture card for streaming?

Yes, it would work just like the normal dock. Simply plug in the HDMI from the Covert Dock to your capture card and use it as you normally would.

Will this work with the Switch Lite?

It works as an even more portable charger fast charger that also connects an additional USB accessory. Since the Switch Lite does not have displayport capabilities the Covert Dock cannot stream gameplay to a TV.

Can I use any USB-C cable for the Switch?

Please use the included USB-C 3.1 cable. If you are using another cable, make sure that it is rated above 3.1 so that it will passthrough DisplayPort video and is certified so that it works reliably. Seriously, don’t use cheap cables.

Does this work with the official Nintendo adjustable charging stand?

Unfortunately the USB-C port in this accessory is purely for charging and not built for data. This is true for most charging stands as they were never designed to be dockable.
