A portable console deserves a portable dock.

Very Useful for Traveling with Multiple Devices

The Covert Dock is so versatile, especially when travelling. It’s great for connecting the Switch to TVs in hotel rooms, but it’s also useful as a charger for mobile devices. It even charges my 2020 MacBook Pro 13” (albeit quite slowly when in use). I’ve also used it to connect an iPad to a TV and used it with a passive USB-A hub to connect multiple accessories to my Switch.

The only downside I’ve found is that the USB-A 3.1 port only outputs 1 amp so it won’t charge my iPhone 11 with a 2 metre cable. I found this out to my cost when I plugged it in before going to sleep. It showed it was charging but must have immediately stopped.

Anyway, I don’t usually write reviews but this product warrants it. Thanks for making this!

No more blackscreening with Samsung TV - Absolutely recommend!

Originally bought this dock to use when on the move as the official one is quite bulky, but it seems its also better built than my original switch dock.

I've suffered from constant flickering and black screen issues with my official dock since I got my 2019 Samsung TV, and tried everything from different HDMI cables to changing power cables, but for some reason the Genki dock does not suffer from this issue at all.

Nintendo obviously blamed my TV or HDMI cable when I contacted them, but if the problem completely goes away when using the Genki dock even with the old cables, clearly the fault lies with the official switch dock.

Bought it for portability, ended up being the daily driver.

Must have for every traveler

If you want to take your Switch all the around the world - Covert Dock is a must have! It's really portable and smart designed device. Also if you want to use your handheld in other room and avoid constant reconnecting Nintendo dock it will do the job too.

Works flawlessly! Nice and compact

I had originally gotten a knock-off as the Genki one was backordered and I wasn't sure how long it would be before I got it. The knock-off sort of worked but was very fidgety, I had to repeatedly mess with the TV power, the Switch, turning it off and on etc before it would register.

This one worked straight of the box! Great for travel, especially with the included power adapters which was an awesome addition. I just ordered the Shadow Cast as well. Happy customer with an unhappy wallet!

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.
