    I just wondered if detaching them would allow the Switch unit to reach 100% and then reattach the Joycons.

    I've had to arrange a return of my own Switch today due to the battery only lasting an hour so I am looking out for others with the same or similar issues.

    Have you drain it all the way down?
    Its possible to be an OS problem and just not reading a higher battery %
