    That's what I do, it's pretty much the perfect size to plug in the dock so you don't need to leave it sticking out the side.

    They have found the problem and already worked out a new firmware to fix it.

    awesome, I'm definitely getting one of these when I get my switch. will save hundreds by reusing ps3 and wii u pads!
    in a perfect world, this would be a standard feature of the console. but I get it that they have to make their $$ on hardware

    A couple of days ago I had an incident where the DS4 all of a sudden stopped working and my joycons wouldn't let me play MK8 either. I had to restart the game. Probably not an adapter issue then...is this the known "joycon sync issue" or what? I'd soldered an extra wire in the left joycon for better signal before it happened. Maybe just an application error of sorts...

    I just got mine and I think it's worth mentioning that it works in handheld mode, all that's needed is a USB A to C adapter!

    I've been testing it with an Xbox One controller and a micro USB cable, works great.

    Does anyone know if there's an adapter for regular Xbox one controllers that works with this?

    I got mine a couple days ago, works fine with my Switch. But if I set my Switch to "Sleep mode" by choosing "Sleep" button via the UI (i.e. not pressing the button on the console), once I turn the Switch on again, the adaptor won't turn on (the light of the adaptor is off) even I plug in out, then plug it in again. To "activate" the adaptor, I have to do either one of following steps:

    1.unplug the adaptor, turn off the Switch, turn it on again, then plug in the adaptor again to make it working again.
    2.or unplug the adaptor, plug it in a laptop (I guess other USB hosts should be same), if the light of the adaptor is on, then plug it back to the Switch, will work again. But via this way, the light of the adaptor may not be always on.

    Does anyone experience the same issue?

    Thanks.

    You should probably contact Mayflash support about that

    I do as well. It's just simple enough to unplug it after putting the switch in sleep mode.

    Thanks for the reply, just did more tests today and found that problem is pretty inconsistent. Finally only can confirm two things:
    1. The adapter only can't turn on after the Switch console is turned into sleep for a relative long time (a few minutes).
    2. To activate the adapter again, actually just need to plug it out, and wait a few minutes, then plug it back in.

    Anyone know how to get it working on Linux? The standard ways (jstest, sixad, xboxdrv) do not work, and mayflash support said to just use windows as Linux isn't supported. Anyone know how?

    I'm really interested in buying that adapter, but does it support rumble feedback?
    Would be a shame if it didn't...

    I turned my adapter on and cycled through the colors, usually it is just red-green-blue, but today, purple showed up and lsusb says that it is nintendo...

    Hi, i recently bought this for using my switch pro controller on pc, works great wired, but wireless connection is weak... today i updated to firmware 1.10 from their website, adding purple led mode called "switch pro mode", but i think is broke... after flashing for about 3 seconds disappears and my controller can't be paired with the device, wired or wireless... AND now i can't cicle the colors (and modes), cause you need to press the button mode for 5 seconds, but the magic-ns stops flashing after 3... great! -_-'

    I've only played half an hour Rabbid Kingdom on my TV but when I did I played with my DS4 and it was perfect.

    By the way, i don't understand this new purple led switch pro mode... is the name referred to a new profile for the nintendo switch console where controllers rumble (very likely), or to a new mode only for the switch pro controller? arghhh, all this redundant names! :(

    Reading what mayflash has on their site, the purple LED mode is NOT for use on a PC. All it does is make the controller seem like a pro controller on the switch so it can support rumble. If you are using a PC, use only the blue or green LED modes (blue preferably).

    Also, if you want to use a pro controller on the PC, you don't even need this adapter. All you have to do is connect it with Bluetooth. It works perfectly with my joycons, and I believe it also applies to the pro.

    It is still unclear what the purple mode actually does as the red mode is used for the switch. If you use lsusb on linux, red shows as Hori Ltd. and Purple shows as Nintendo...
