    Hi all,
    I am considering purchasing a dongle to push payload to my switch. I have Reinx 2.0 installed on my switch.

    Initially I consider the R4s dongle which I understand has excellent battery life but uses a proprietary format, so it looks like your limited by what they support. I looked on their website and can see that Reinx 2.0 is not out yet, so this really put me off.

    The other alternative is NX Atmosphere which I understand you flash .bin files directly onto the unit.

    Can anybody help suggest which is the better dongle? Or any other suggested dongles?

    The main thing I would like is a smaller dongle with long battery life (intending on mainly using when I am out and the switch needs a reboot)

    Thanks,

    looks like you didnt do much research into the r4s dongle as it accepts payloads of all kinds

    the problem with R4s dongle is you need a UF2 file insted of a simple .bin .....

    with the dongle you dont need a phone or pc anymore .
    Just put your payload of choice into the dongle,the proper files into sd card,enter the RCM mode properly and then insert the dongle into the ucb-c port

    yeah sure but as you see it's not up to date,and you're a limited by their choice,so if you wanna play around with stuff et playing with some .bin files you can't unless pass trough hekate ....
