Best Replacement Charging Cables for Nintendo Switch Lite iMore 2020
Having the portability of the Nintendo Switch Lite makes it easy to love, and having one of these best Switch Lite replacement chargers makes it even easier. Since I do take it everywhere, there is the potential for me to misplace or damage my charging cable which leaves me without power unless I have a battery backup. If this has happened to you, or you're only looking for an extra power cord to keep in a different room, you'll want to make sure you purchase a replacement that works efficiently and safely with your handheld. Here are the best charging cables for Nintendo Switch Lite.
- Power to you: Switch AC Power Supply
- For the road: PowerA Nintendo Switch Car Charger
- Charge more: YCCTEAM Switch Lite Car Charger
- Twin cables: Likada Charging Cables
- Go the distance: Anker Powerline 10-Foot Cable
This is our favorite of replacement Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite chargers. It works efficiently and has a five-foot-long cord. There are protections against over-heating, over-voltage, and short-circuiting. This will easily fit in a travel bag if you're carrying your Switch Lite with you.
If you're the kind of person that prefers officially licensed gear, then this is the car charger to get. It's made by PowerA and is a great choice. The cable is braided which makes it more sturdy against bending and offers high-speed charging.
This car charger is perfect for road trips. It comes with a removable 6.6-foot USB-A to USB-C cable and has two ports so that you can charge two devices. While a USB-A to USB-C cable isn't the best way to charge your Switch Lite, this will work as a good solution for the occasional road trip where multiple devices will need to be plugged in at once.
You get both a red and a black 6.6-foot-long braided nylon cable in this pack. They are perfect for use with the Switch Lite or original Switch. If you want to have one cable for travel and one for home or have a backup just in case, this two in one pack is a very affordable option.
With how portable the Switch Lite is, it can be easy to misplace your charging cable while you're out and about. Or if you're like me, you pick up one of the best Switch Lite replacement chargers just to have more than one charging cable in your home. I have a dedicated charger that I use on-the-go and one that stays plugged into the wall of my living room. I've researched to find the best chargers for your Switch Lite, whether you need a full-on AC charger or simply need the cables.
The best replacement charger for your Switch Lite is definitely the Switch AC Power Supply. It looks a lot like the official charger and doesn't cost that much. If you happen to have both a Switch Lite and the original Switch, you'll be able to charge either device with this power supply.
If you're looking for something to use on a road trip, I highly recommend getting the YCCTEAM Switch Lite Car Charger as it comes with a detachable 6.6-foot cable and offers two ports so you can charge multiple devices at the same time.
