    Hello all!
    Does anyone know what is the value for the capacitors on top of the Nintendo Switch APU for both the normal (V1, V2) and Lite?
    I suppose they are the same value for all of these versions, or at least the same for Marikos.

    Hi there!

    In this post I see 1UF 10v 20% but the aliexpress link is 1UF 6.3V 20%. I also see 10% sometimes around the forum.... So which one is the right one to order :)

    Thanks!

    Well, I've been using a hot air station... I dunno if a gun will have enough heat to solder it...
    I clean it up real good with IPA, re-tin with "normal" solder, apply a good flux then pre-heat the APU with a hot air station and, when the solder is shiny I apply the cap.
    To finalize I inspect it with and, if needed, touch the tip of my solder iron with a little bit of solder. Whenever you're doing it, either with a hot air or the iron, use flux!

    It's fairly easy!

    PS: when I say "clean it real good" I reeeally mean it! Do not let any thermal paste in the APU as it will prevent a good solder, cause a real mess and, potentially, cause the APU to overheat, burn or whatever... It conducts heat, hence the name "thermal" paste! :D :P

    Thanks for the reply, I meant the hot air station. Any recommendation or any Chinese one work?

    I just recently picked up micro soldering as a hobby, thanks for all the tips :)

    Any good one will suffice!
    I've been using YaXun (Chinese) for almost 7 years now without a problem. :)

    Yes!
    Just solder the capacitors back on and install a new flex cable.
    It should work fine! :)

    I'm pretty sure they are using the same tegra chip so yes
