Hi all,

I have a banned switch, and have just purchased a new switch lite.

Can I sign in with the same account from the banned console on the new lite? or will this cause a ban on the new console?

Thanks

Dan

Yes, the accounts are almost never banned. It's the console they often ban.
When you get game-specific banned, they first ban the account. After you log in on a game-specific banned account to the game, it triggers a red flag on the console, and then a console ban for the game also gets applied.

That's why the first day you're banned from a game, it shows error 2124-5114 (...restricted for this Nintendo Account), and then the next day it becomes 2124-4607 (...restricted on this console).

So yes, they do ban accounts, but only from specific games.
