    I know many threads have been made about this but I didn't think they match my details.

    It all started when my switch crashed after trying to install an NSP I believe through tinfoil and when I pressed the button to automatically restart and get out of the crash my switch shut down (it seems?) and will not go into RCM mode no matter what. I have AutoRCM enabled so this leads me to believe that my switch is out of batter. I left it for a total of 2 days charging. One day in the dock and one day connected directly to ac cord. TegraRCM still will not detect that their charging after pressing the powerbutton or using a jig. I don't know what to do at this point to at least get my switch to turn on even.

    Is their any advice I can get?

    So what do you suggest I do at this point? Do I have no option other than buying a new battery?

    I've went ahead and bought a new battery. I hope this fixes the issue, definitely turning autorcm off the second I get the chance if this works

    It's an external charger used for charging RC helicopter cells, ensure the one you get supports Li-ion, they're more known as "balanced chargers"
