WARNING! PROCEED WITH CAUTION when using third-party docks with your Nintendo Switch as some of them are reportedly bricking the hybrid console.
Docks form Nyko are some of the major culprits if Switch owners on Reddit and YouTuber Spawn Ware are to be believed, with the dock bricking Switch consoles following the 5.0 system update. Nyco offered to replace the latter’s console, which would suggest that there’s some truth behind its docks effectively breaking the Switch.
But there are plenty of people in Nintendo related forums across the web noting that other third-party docks are causing bricking problems, though some have reported no problems with non-official docks.
