I placed this order on the fact that the regular dock is oversized to travel with in your bag if you plan to bring the other necessities... What made up my mind to specifically buy this dock was that it had a small detachable USB C hub that I could use when I was away. The dock works splendidly. It projects to the tv, chargers and avoids overheating with vents. It's the perfect size to fit inside the gripcase bag with it inside along with a HDMI cable, an extra pair of controllers and a USB C cable (original charger is rather bulky and I just swap out the cables for my phone charger to use). The downside of this dock is the jumping mechanisms to open the vents do sometimes get stuck that you'd have to lightly pull it upwards to get it up. It was at first tricky to get it down perfectly however what I did was that I pushed the part facing forwards first then the behind as I pushed it all downwards.
First of all, I ordered this because I loved the grip case they made for the Switch. You could tell they paid attention to detail and worked to create a quality product. The other reason being all the research they put in to make sure the dock would be safe for the Switch. I've tried it and it works perfectly with my Switch. I love the fact that they included a way to make sure airflow is great and the core drive that is detachable so I can use it with my laptop is an absolute steal. You can tell they put a lot of care and effort into this product. My only slight concern and wonder is why when you connect the switch it's not entirely secure like the official dock is. It kind of wobbles back and forth from side to side if touched. This seems to be because the usb c connection is not firmly in place. I'm guessing this is so it is able to fit different sized grip cases on your switch so you don't have to take it off. It's not a huge deal but make sure your dock and switch is in a stable place while playing. The only thing I disagree with this company about is what charger to use. I'm a firm believer that ONLY use the official Nintendo Switch ac adapter with this dock. Because it's the only adapter that follows Nintendo's really odd usb c power draw. So if you buy this product please use the official adapter for it and ignore the other recommendations. You do not want to take any extra chances of bricking or damaging your switch. Already using a 3rd party dock is risk enough. But I believe Skull & Co. probably made one of the best ones available on the market right now. Just stick with the adapter that came with your switch is all.
The jumpgate is my favorite piece of technology of 2019. It is amazing. I travel a lot for work and can take it anywhere and use it in meetings to connect a macbook pro to a TV. I cannot recommend this enough. These guys know how to make a good product. The only area for improvement would be the spring action on the dock itself. It gets stuck sometimes and doesn't travel as well as everything else. The core drive is an absolute marvel. I will probably buy another one.
