Take me with a grain of salt but I believe it need 2.7a to charge, and 1.5a to power on (keeping it's charge level) so it's probably 2.7a at least.

FYI, it says PDP, meaning it's a third party "official" charger

Seems to depend on where you're located. Shipping for me was $5.99. Located in the National Capital Region.

Anyone know if charging a Switch or a phone (e.g., LG G7 with Fast Charger, but I guess the charger won't support fast charging...) using this will drain the car battery much or it is negligible?

I will answer my own question hoping I understood well, but feel free to correct.

After a quick search, I found this article: https://time.com/4023751/phone-car-charger/
"And speaking of cars, there’s still that pesky question to answer. Charging your phone via your car is “simply energy transfer from your car’s battery to your phone battery,” says Duffy. So, if you had a 100Ah car battery, and your phone’s battery was 1.8Ah (which is equal to 1800mAh), a completely dead handset would pull less than 2% of the charge out of your vehicle."

Nintendo Switch Battery: 4310 mAh
LG G7 Phone Battery capacity: 3000 mAh

And for car (fast answer, I did not look all model, etc. -- just to have a ballpark estimate -- correct me if I'm wrong)

Small car battery 50000 mAh
Typical car 70000 mAh
Tesla 60kWh battery: 270000 mAh

So we can safely assume that for most people a phone or a switch maximum capacity is safely below 10% of your car battery capacity, unless of course your battery is completely waste and only have 10% left of its original maximum capacity, it should be pretty safe to use when needed. And you gotta consider that your battery is self-charging when driving too.
