    Found a new Chinese dongle called the ns-atmosphere payload injector.
    I thought I should just start a whole new thread by itself seeing I posted this as a comment but eventually will get lost as that other thread goes on.

    - Comes with a jig
    - Has a space on the dongle itself to slide in the jig so that you can always bring it with you
    - Has it's own programmer wich you can download from the website itself
    - Has a built in battery and a charge protector so that your switch won't get fried
    - Has a power button and a reset button
    - Has a built in usb mini port for charging and comes with a cable for doing that

    Homepage - http://www.ns-atmosphere.com/en/
    I ordered mine from -
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Por...837.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.14bc4c4dkuahDi
    Will post more once mine arrives

    Update: I got mine after 2 weeks and it came packaged really good in a big bubble envelop. The dongle itself is a lot smaller then it seems on pictures. It's a bit bulkier then a usb stick but not by many. Installing it worked fine and mine got detected by windows itself but for people who are having problems installing should disable driver verification.
    You can do that by typing startup options in your start menu and then push on restart now on advanced options and from there you can disable driver verification. By doing so the driver will install just fine and work.
    The thing with mine is that the USB-C port didn't work but the USB Mini did just fine so instead of connecting it through the usb c port on the dongle with my switch, I used the usb mini cable and a USB C adapter and I got to push the payload through that.
    That isn't the intented way to work but it does work through that so I contacted the seller and he's sending me a new one.
    The design itself I like a lot. Especially with the reset button and the power button being on the outside. The jig I was surprised by, it's a really good jig, slides in perfectly and doesn't seem to be one that damages the pins over time so i'm happy with that.
    I told the seller to test the dongles more before shipping since mine had a faulty usb c port and he's let me know that he will be doing that. I'll be posting another update when I got my second one that should 100 percent work instead of only partially but
    don't let this scare you because every new product has a couple of broken ones seeing the sxpro had problems with their internal capacitors and other dongles had their problems

    I, personally, prefer the other one, because it has both USB-C and USB-A so it doesn't require a cabe to be connected to a PC... but the jig slot of this is absolutely brilliant!

    Yeah the jig slot is a good extra. It does have a usb mini port tho to charge it. Should add that to the post itself.

    I will wait for the Team Xecuter Gear, for 25$ no need to fuck around with China clones. I own already an SX Pro and it works quiet fine.

    I just read about SX Gear, to get this straight they are now "releasing" their SX pro dongle as standalone which costed 10$ more than just SX OS, now charging 25$ for it? Why would anyone by this? To use it with ReiNX etc? Then you can also buy SX Pro and sell the license for 15 bucks if you hate SX OS so much (but then why support TX by buying their product)? Don´t get me wrong i really like sx os and it´s the only os i´m using on my switch since release, but i don´t get this move/i don´t see the potential buyers here...
    Also, team xecuter IS chinese ;)
    And also, why would you order one if you already own a Pro?

    @topic: I like the design of this one much more over the other aliexpress dongle (and the jig slot is just genius), 10€ for me with coupon and free shipping here so i think i´ll give this a try :)


    EDIT: Ordered - now we wait... :)

    this is a lot longer than the SX pro dongle, looking at the photos it looks longer than a USB stick, partly because u can store the jig in it,

    but competition is good :D

    i love how there is many options, the size is really big, but the idea of injecting other payloads and the jig inside the dongle is pretty nice.

    i've never bought anything from ali express, do i need to have shipping address (like to be subscribed to fedex or dhl or something like that?)

    last time when R4S sent me the promotion card for NTR b9s R4s card for free, and i didn't pay anything and i didn't have shipping address, just told them where i live and they sent it to me.

    Dunno what you mean by "shipping address" but this item ships worldwide to any adress, just type in yours no need to register at any other service.

    Just create a new account and get a 4 euro off coupon or dollars and then just put in your adress since it ships worldwide. That way you'll have it for around 10 euro's/dollars

    Shit. I need to make choices on the dongle now.

    The programmer feels extremely good tho... Even tho I can flash other manually, it just seem way easier... And for the same (or even lower) price.
