Author Topic: Will a Nintendo Switch USB C power cable work with the GPD Win?  (Read 1795 times)

I'm trying to consolidate the power cables I lug around.  The 'cheap' GPD Win power cable kinda scares me so I was wondering if I could use the higher quality Nintendo Switch power cable instead.

Has anybody tried this?

I did... The test coincided with an episode of boot problems (black screen and purple led) so I have not tried to load the GPD Win with the Switch cable again, but it may have been a coincidence. Who knows

Ahh yes.. I've had that happen using the GPD power cable before.  After a few hard resets I had it working again, but it was very unsettling when it when wouldn't power on!

Thanks for the answers guys :)

Cheap cable? Maybe we didn't received the same cable. How is your one?
