Charging the Switch…

I've been trying to do some research in an attempt to understand the different ways the switch could and would need to be charged but I'm struggling to find any great detail on this.

I understand the joy con controllers need a separate charging pack but how does that work?

I'm looking to understand the following:

  • Is the joy-con charger only necessary if you want to play with the joy-cons stand alone/with the grip?

  • Will the joy-con controllers need to be charged when you're using the switch as a handheld?

  • If I am using the switch as a handheld, how do I charge this? Can it only be charged via the dock?

  • By leaving the switch in the dock whilst on charge, does that charge the joycons too?
