    I have a problem. My Switch drained its battery too fast 10 min from 100% to 0%....i tried a method where i let drain it in hekate to 3.2mV.....i did that like 4 times...now it drains it in 40 minutes but still its tooo fast...is there a better way (i dont wanna send it to nintendo......first because i get it patched ..second it has a Trinket M0 installed and third i have a customshell)

    Dang that sucks. I'd say the battery is dying then. Check out battery replacement tutorials and hopefully you can find a place to buy a new battery.

    You can post the battery information screen in hekate, might give a better idea to people who understand the info. (I understand just a little of battery info, but could compare your numbers to mine)

    What you can try is shut off the unit, then unplug the battery and replug it back in, see if the battery recalibrate in Hekate.

    If power cycling the unit doesn't change, try the battery trick work for some people.

    Shoud be alright if you do it carefully, when you pull the sd card adapter do it gently, do you let the battery died often.

    I recommend this if you need a set of screw driver.

    no it happened suddently first it started to die from 100 to 0 in 20 min (one day suddently it was like that) i did that cycle thing 5 times and now it dies in 40 min - 1hr....but one cycle takes soo long.....and everytime it dies on hos i need to charge it till 5 percent to boot in hekate (if i enter rcm my trinket m0 boots and its menu wont let me acces the sd if battery is dead and i cant inject hekate via tegrarcm due the bootloader of the modchip loads as soon as i enter rcm

    Let it charge a bit, and then try again, the uf2 on the chip does have a built in hekate if he flashed that. Newer Hekate version have auto battery calibrate
