    My little Brother said his Switch Doesnt Charge anymore. So i Took it at my Home to test it myself. I let one joy con for Testing in the switch. And took the other one in my Hand. I get this Charge Symbols. Everything ok? I ask because i know this symbol only when samsung USB cables dont load correctly but i dont see any Problems with the switch here. So everything should be corset fight?because i load it from 0% to 45% now....

    The symbol is correct. I also would like to ask anyone who knows if the lightning charging symbol ever go away to indicate that joycons are fully charged?

    Or, how do we determine or know that both joycons have been fully charged?

    Thanks.

    I could've sworn that it had a separate charging icon for the left and the right.

    It does, but he only has his right joycon in, so that one gets a charging symbol (as well as the Switch itself), but since there is no left joy con in, there is no charging icon to display for the left side.

    Its possible something is wrong with the brother's dock or power cable rather than the switch.

    Please make sure you use a Nintendo-approved power source, problems can arise if you don't, as the Switch has very tight tolerances when it comes to power.
