If you are the proud owner of a Nintendo Switch console and have been considering purchasing a new dock for the portable screen to allow you to connect it to additional screens, but have not yet parted with your hard earned cash.
You may be interested in then awesome Nintendo Switch dock which has been created by Instagram user @CptnAlex using an old broken Gameboy Advance SP.
In the process of tinkering with a second Nintendo Switch Dock, I realized the circuitboard was pretty much the exact same size as a Gameboy Advance SP. And then I remembered one of my old SPs doesn’t work anymore. So I got to work. I’ve never modified any consoles or anything like that, but I figured i’d give it a shot.
I put a little hole in the bottom of the screen frame for the dock connector to go into, so its safe and secure when the screen is closed. Full access to USB, HDMI and power supply. I put a strip of foam near the top of the screen to secure the console a little bit more.
Overall its actually pretty steady. Like I said this was my first ever modification of any kind. I don’t even own a dremel…I did this all with an X-Acto knife…let me tell you, that wasn’t easy. It’s crude in some places but it works. And now that I know it works, I may give it another shot with a different SP casing, or a different console all together.
