    The fake pro controller improve with the latest version!
    The board is more like the original and no expoxid Chips.
    Very clean and good Hardware.
    All works normal and the motion Sensors works fine.
    But No Nfc ( i dont need it) and normal rumble.
    Normal analog sticks are inside that normal caps or xbox elite caps works.
    The Notification LED is missing but There is no Use until now.
    I think it can solder in Because the points and resistors points exist on the board.


    The Plastik feels really good and i can say good Tool with that the Plastic is made.
    PS. Thats my Job to make These Tool to Make Plastic parts.
    I think they Use the Same Tools for it like nintendo but only without nintendo Insert.


    Only the switch logo on top is missing and the nintendo Logo on the bottom.
    The screw are the right too and they had the secret Message too.

    All other imprints are There like Support.nintendo.com or made in germany.

    I will try to solder HD rumble on it to See what happens.

    Normal analog sticks are inside that normal caps or xbox elite caps works.

    Cost 21€.

    Did you really solder HD Rumble motors in a 3rd party controller and expect them to work...?

    Good to have "some" alternative to Pro controller ;) Fake Joy-Cons also not bad, but they have only 4 hours of battery time, and no way to charge from console, only by splitted USB-C cable (included). I think if they fix this issue it could be good alternative, since it have not bad d-pad.

    The Same board?
    Strange that they not work.
    They Have only 2 cable and should react to the Signal.
    Its a try to get a bit other rumble feeling.
    When nothing change comes the Old micro Motors back

    HD rumble doesn't work in nearly the same way. HD rumble lets you control the pitch whereas normal rumble just spins at a constant speed when active. I would have expected at least some response out of the HD rumble motors, such as being driven at maximum pitch or frying the motors, but maybe they need a PWM signal to work at all.

    The problem is that outside on the package it can not see which Board is inside.

    Normal motors can spin at different speeds, but the way they're used in rumble, they never do. Rumble is either on or off, and if they want different rumble strengths/pitches, they have traditionally used multiple motors with different sized weights at the end.
    I guess this may be because of the heavy weight the rumble motor wouldn't spin effectively (or at all) at lower speeds.

    Mmh ok.

    But what i see is that the DPad seems the Same like the Original and has similar Contacts on the board.
    But it has not the Problems of the Dpad.
    IT works fine without false up or down Signals.

    The only difference i found is that on the middle where the pin is the Board has some plastic Space.

    never tried this one. I use the official controller primarily. one of the best controllers i have used. I also have some cheap wired switch procontroller with a long red usb cable that i got for $1.99 at a thrift store.There was not even a scratch on it. Musta been new. It dont work in a pc but works on a switch. Switch says its a pro controller.

    I got one of the earlier fake ones that was sold on aliexpress. It's an amazing fake. The rumble is terrible though. I have to disable it in the controller settings as it vibrates extremely hard. Also the battery was nuked quite fast. It works good when wired. The design is amazing. Of course it is worse than the official one, but it is an amazing extra controller for only 20 bucks.

    What is the battery like in the new version of this fake controller?

    Oh the battery is really good. I Use it over 7 hours without loading and no need to load it.
    And the Power Display Shows around 75% remains.

    The Battery Looks good like the original in the original pro controller. [​IMG][​IMG]

    It seems There is a other Black Version.
    The Mainboard is different and has the Tag SW-P V1. 8.
    The upper board is V1. 3.


    The other what i Post in this thread Was a SW-P-A V1. 3 with the upper board V1. 2

    Hi everyone!

    I have a fake controller like this from Ali too. I want to experiment on it. Do you know how to modify the SoftWare on it? I have a Splatoon version, and the Switch recognises it to have neon colours. I plan on changing the housing to a Pikachu/Eevee version. The JCTool from CTCaer can modify the original Switch Pro controllers colours, but it does not work with these Chinese controllers :(

    I will soon order a few more, so if I could get the software from the controller, I could compare it to the other with the other controllers, and find where the colours are stored.

    Do you maybe have a source from where you bought it?

    Hello everyone!

    So today I disassembled the controller and replaced the shell with a Pikachu version.
    My motherboard version is SW-P-A V1.3, and it was manufactured on 2019.02.16.
    The other PCB is WEL 2019.01.05 and V1.3 too.

    Also I ordered another controller and some HD rumble motors for the Joy Cons. It looks like that the original Pro Controller uses more heavy motors, because the wires in the original are thicker and different. Meanwhile Joy-Con motors are a lot lighter and I think they require less power. Te Chinese controller has thin cables to the motors, so it might work. Shipping is around 30 days so it will take for a while.

    Thats the board what i Post a time ago.

    HD rumble motors doesnt work.
    They can solder on it but they are too weak when they work.
    I dont think that the rumble is weak with the build in motors.
    I dont think that IT is the problem with the cable between Motor and Board.
