How to charge a Nintendo Switch in the car!

Text:

Ok I got a brilliant question for our techy community out there...  The Nintendo Switch says on the back of it that the input is 15volts.  On the power adapter it says it outputs 2 different voltages one output of 5 Volts @ 1.5 A and a second of 15 Volts @ 2.6 A.

Now as I read it takes the 15 volts to actually charge the system and 5 Volts for something else.  Then I read no 5 volts is the charging rate and 15 volts to like use it with the dock...

Now any idiot would know that if you put 15 volts into a 5 volt charger is going to blow it up and if you put 5 volts into the 15 volt port its simply not going to work, and would actually probably be more damaging to the unit rather than just putting in the voltage it calls for.

Then I see the car chargers are going to have 5 volts, so how is that suppose to charge a 15 volt system??  its like what the heck is going on is this system 5 volts or 15 volts???  Why is this so %#*@ confusing????

Now a normal USB-C connector would only seem to have 5 volts going through it not 15 volts...  So someone help me make sense of this beast is it powered by 5 volts or 15 volts, and if its 5 volts then why does it say input of 15 volts??

'''PLEASE HELP'''
