I was thinking that Nintendo missed a great chance to make the battery on he new Switch units even better by increasing it's size a bit.

Looking at some phones with batteries =>5000 mah they have been around for quite some time and the battery size seems not to be an issue.



Has anyone tried to upgrade their Switch by replacing the battery with a larger capacity one? What would it take? Would any software hack be required to make it work? Would the Switch accept such change?

You must modify the switch detection of the battery as well, since it got like 3 partners listed. And if it doesn't detect one of them it will turn off. I don't remember where it was but I think it was in Prodinfo.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    i used to go out to the recycling center every couple weeks and look at the crts and other electronics people would drop off. Usually screens were broken or severely scratched from being tossed around. Did find a good one here and there, but never anything like a 1080i widescreen crt.

  • a_username_that_isnt_cool @ a_username_that_isnt_cool:
    Is it piracy if it was released for free? Not in my opinion, but I also think it's not piracy if buying it isn't owning it, and it's not piracy if you can't buy it from the original creators anymore.

    Free release can have loopholes where they still make money through ads
