    My left joycon started drifting and since I have emunand installed I cannot ask Nintendo for help. Tried cleaning dust but that was a very temporary solution lasting about a day at most. I either have to buy replacement parts and risk putting them in myself (very poor motor coordination) or simply buy a single joy con or pair (in my country, they're only sold together).

    I checked out aliexpress to see what they've got. Joy cons are expensive, as expected, and are kind of a must considering I play in handheld mode most of the time. Wireless controllers, on the other hand, come in a large variety and are generally much cheaper. I think I may want 2-3 of these for docked multiplayer with friends.

    As for replacement parts, these are cheap but are sold in 5-10 pieces, with many of the reviews claiming they didn't help (dubious, but possible). Really long wait time (~40 days).

    So, has anybody got experience with third party controllers for the Switch? What is the risk of the console bricking using any of them?

    Do they want to see my warranty? I voided that upon installing homebrew basically.
