Topic: Is the Japanese Switch Dock compatible with the US Switch?

Is this Japanese Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Switch Dock actually compatible with the US Nintendo Switch, AC Adapter and HDMI Cable? Do you have evidence that it's compatible?

Do they use different power in Japan? Is it dangerous using this Dock in North America with the electricity we have?

Please let me know because I'm interested in purchasing this Dock. Thanks.

The Japanese dock will work just fine in the US. All docks are compatible with all Switches. For regions with different AC adapters, you can simply buy an adapter from that region and swap it. The part that plugs into the dock is a simple USB-C.

In the case of the US and Japan, you wont even need to do that.

So I don't need to worry about getting a Japanese AC Adapter, HDMI Cable and a USB-C Charge Cable for my Pro Controller? Just the Japanese Dock will be fine without any issues and all my North American Switch stuff is 100% compatible?

USB-C cable and HDMI cable, no problem at all. You can just use what you have.

AC Adapter should be fine too. Voltage in Japan is 100V and 120V the US. The Switch's adapter is universal and made to handle anything between 100V and 240V (you can check the adapter if you wanna be sure), so it should be perfectly fine. All the power conversion happens in the adapter, not in the dock, so all the insides of all the docks worldwide are identical; only the adapters differ.
