Enquiries About Leaving the Nintendo Switch Console Docked

Information:

The Nintendo Switch console can be left in the dock while not in use to ensure that it is fully charged.

If you put the console in the dock or plug in the AC adapter directly to charge before the battery is completely spent, it will only count as a partial charging cycle.

Leaving the console on the dock or plugged in directly with the AC adapter overnight, or past the point where the battery is fully charged will not cause harm to the battery.
