  • Product Description

    Brook is no stranger to the Nintendo Switch, producing a number of solutions for this popular console as input PCBs and converters.  Now, those looking for a feature packed, compact Switch Dock need not look much further than their latest offering - the Powerbay.

    At just 4 inches long and under 2 inches high, the Powerbay is almost pocket-sized in comparison to the official Nintendo Switch dock.  It resembles a mini GameCube, squished vertically. A translucent purple lid opens to reveal the USB C docking port, and its rounded handle detaches and installs under the bottom to give it additional leverage.

    USB, GameCube Inputs. HDMI Output. Bluetooth Audio.

    One of the Powerbay's standout features are present on its front. Unique to almost any dock on the market today is its Gamecube controller support, allowing you to play Super Smash Bros Ultimate using up to two authentic GC controllers.

    By default, the Powerbay will emulate the Gamecube controls to operate within the Switch environment like a Switch Pro controller. To enable authentic Gamecube input control, press the Turbo button (on left side of device) for more than 5 seconds. To switch back to Switch Pro input control, press the Turbo Button again for more than 5 seconds.

    You can also attach two Switch compatible USB controllers, giving you up to 4 simultaneous players on this tiny device. 

    Further, the Powerbay outputs to HDMI, allowing you to output to a full screen TV. If you own a USB-C device that can output to a video source, you can also use the Powerbay to display. Of note, make sure to connect a USB Type-C cable and power source that can output at least DC15V/2.6A

    Finally, Bluetooth audio is supported, allowing you to pair two headsets to the device and experience low latency sound output.

    Note: The Nintendo Switch Lite can also dock to the Powerbay, but it cannot output video to TV as it contains no video output hardware.

    No-Bricking Policy

    Third-party Nintendo Switch docks have a bad reputation for bricking the console. Brook's "Bricking Strategy" aims to eliminate that risk with several design and electrical standardizations:  

    1. Brook has reinforced the USB Type-C flexibility and seal, preventing short circuits from occurring when your Switch slips.
    2. Brook has also reinforced the power control to ensure sure that device's voltage curves match that of Nintendo's own Switch dock.
    3. The Powerbay is designed to match PD 3.0 fast-charging standards and are able transmit a stable 18V of power.

    They also stand behind their product with a robust repair and replace policy should any unmodified Nintendo Switch become damaged from use of the dock. You can read more about their policy on the official website new-window-icon.png under "Brick Strategy"
