For those readers, who have connected it to the Nintendo Switch dock, we recommend connecting the Nintendo Switch AC adapter to the dock and then to a wall outlet. Please keep in mind that there is no need to dock the Nintendo Switch console to charge your Pro Controller. Just use the USB charging cable (model No. HAC-010) added to the Pro Controller to connect it to the controller and then to an empty USB port on the dock.

The other way for a user to set everything up is to connect your controller right to the Nintendo Switch AC adapter. To proceed, use your Nintendo Switch AC adapter (model No. HAC-002) to connect it right to the Pro Controller and then to a wall outlet.
