    they would have to be the official battery because the console wont boot unless its the official part

    Oh neat, I didn't know that. What's your source, by the way? I wanted to test it out, but don't want to waste my money trying.

    Curious. I wonder if it's just because it has unusual dimensions or they actually bothered to ensure it was an official battery. Something to check out later.

    Here are the specs of the battery, in case anyone needs it:

    Battery model: CS-NTS001SL
    Capacity: 3600mAh/ 13.32Wh
    Volts: 3.7V
    Warrantly: 12 Months

    I would say it's easier to swap joycon battery. Even fewer screws to get to it.
    I doubt that. Last I checked there are only two cables running to the battery, and there is no way to detect battery authenticity like that from what I know.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Looks like there's actually FIVE wires running from the battery, with a suspicious grey wire in the middle? Not sure if anyone has looked into this yet.

    ++-That's good to know. Thought about doing a shell replacement when 3rd party batteries with higher mAh show up on the market and my OEM battery goes to shit.

    ...source? Lithium ion technology hasn't advanced for shit in the last 20 years. Companies are desperately looking for alternative means than these exploding timebombs. My PSP slim's two batteries have gased up and expanded already.

    Nintendo batteries seem to last longer but I wouldn't say they've "advanced".

    I got annoyed when they started putting battery compartments behind screws, which doesnt allow for quick swaps. Today all this is done for maximum profitability. All tablets I know of don't allow for user-replaceable batteries easy enough for grandma to replace, let alone cheap batteries no more than 20% of new unit cost. Let alone easy batteries to source locally.

    Vita....same story. Which is a major reason why I feel less sad that it was basically abandoned. I hate designed-
    for-disposal
    design choices.

    By taking battery replacement out of the average customer's hands, profitability is increased. People either buy a new gadget or replace the battery at an exorbitant price...a price high because availability and thirdparty competition has been reduced, and battery replacement has been tied into a 'service' issue that scares and scams most average users.

    That said, there is still choice in the phone market to get a phone with a tool-not-required removable battery. Thankfully.
