So I got myself a 56k Ohms 5A usb 3.0 to type c cable. I tried to use it with a Spare AC adapter & it worked ( adapter need at least 5A). But now when I use the same cable with my power bank, the device doesn't charged at all. Is is because my power bank doesn't have enough juice to push to charge my Switch? ( anker powercore speed 10000 is my power bank).

Q2) Does those Build-In power bank inside the case ( aka power case) work & does it really charges the switch well?

Is your power bank on power delivery Pd standard ? And able to transmit 40 watts to your switch? If can't will recommend you buy new pd power bank and go for zmi .

yes, it's cheaper. however the question is do you usually resell the game once you complete or do you keep it. if you always keep the game then go for digital otherwise go for physical copy.

Nope not always. Example octopath on eshop is 59.90usd as compare to lowest 69.90 on shopee. Big major titles will be cheaper on eshop. If indies game .. physical can be expensive. And ecommerce platform allow you to use coupon or credit card rebate.

Not enough to even power Nintendo switch dock as it need 40 watts and dock mode is where you charget and play. Get a zmi pd with 40 watt you can even power your dock.

My powerbank is a Anker Power core speed 10,000 mAh capacity with QC 3.0. On its page it says input is 5V/2A while output is :5-8 V 3 A , 8-10 V 2.4 A , 10-12 V 2 A
So what do I see to know that my powerbank is delivering standard charge?

This is directly quoted from Nintendo Japan FAQ
According to the guide, using a USB-A to USB-C charging cable is fine as long as it has a 56K OHM resistor. This will ensure that the power draw will be kept stable, thus avoiding any damage being brought upon the Switchís battery. The official charging cable that comes with the Switch Pro Controller and Joy-Con Charging Grip meets these specifications exactly. If you donít have either of those peripherals, you can buy this official cable on its own from Nintendo of Japanís online store. It costs 1,296 yen (or $12.17 USD).
Wow, I didn't even read the requirements until now. For USB-A to USB-C I use the Belkin cable. Not sure meet the spec or not. But no issue when I used it. Now using the anker cables that comes with the anker 5-port USB-C PD desktop charger. Anker cables are thinner and easier to bent. Most USB-C cables are very thick.

Why do you want to use power bank on dock mode? Dock mode is for connecting to TV leh.

Shoppe or Lazada. Look for local set with warranty.
Qisahn, Playtrendsg, Shopitree. Just look the one with best price. And read the old post for more info
