    Yes, it’s kind of hard to miss.

    Yes please, give me, give me, give me! With EU connectors though!

    Would have liked downwards facing connectors, but this will do!

    Anker is a Chinese company.

    This is completely wrong. Issues with the dock were not related to simple USB-C power delivery, they were related to the DOCKED power requirements. Any USB-C charger can charge a Switch without bricking it. Also, stories about it not being compliant were written by amateurs who do not know that Nintendo submitted their requirements to the standard which is not even fully completed.

    One of those places where 3/4 of an inch less is socially acceptable. :D

    Startups such as FinSix have used Gallium Nitride to produce tiny chargers in the past, but haven’t had much commercial success. I was lucky enough to buy one of the 65w Dart-C chargers while they were available (FinSix still has a non-USB-C version for other notebooks available but not the USB-C adapter). I’ve used it as my travel charger. I’m very interested in this Anker one. It would be nice if they also offered one that could power a single device up to 65w.

    While this is awesome, I'm more interested in the 100w version for future proofing (should I ever be able to afford a MBP).

    Curious how they manage heat dissipation with a wall brick that small

    That got nothing to do with how their prices are multiple times over in SE Asian market vs US. Go check it yourself.

    I assume you mean any USB-PD compliant charger. I'd never risk plugging anything into say, a One Plus Dash charger.

    I agree. The PD 4 will be a good start, but I'd love a 4-port USB-C version
