Switch will ONLY slow charge via iPhone cube not via dock.

Old guy here... (still have my original NES setup from 30+ years ago).

I have a strange issue I can't seem to find a solution to online. First off, we have two switches. One was bought new over a year ago and works fine in both docks. The other was bought used and worked fine for almost a month but now is acting strange. It won't dock. (Green flashing light on either dock). It also will not charge via either "official" Nintendo charge cables removed from the dock and plugged straight to an outlet. I've tried every reset I can find online. Power button, power button plus volume buttons, power button plus home, etc. Everything points to a bad battery or USB-C connector. HOWEVER, I can plug it in and slow charge it via an iPhone "cube" and a standard USB-C cable. Once charged the battery will run as long as the other switch does. The switch literally behaves normal as long as it's handheld. We can NOT dock it and play on a TV nor "quick" charge it. What are my options? I've tried blowing on the ports. lol
