    Some may know of Xkit from their amazing RCMclip jig that's $2 or less.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/best-quality-rcm-jig.512674/

    Well, they've released their RCMloader dongle kit and it's $10 or a few cents less! I am liking the Switch colors and logo-eque {under the USB C} look it has.

    Hmm, I should get this one!!
    and then I can carry on struggling to save for a bigger SD card.


    Update: My cheap ass was excited to use the new member discount.
    It can only be applied towards a $20.00 purchase. Anyway, I'm waiting on the site to verify the payment.

    i love their RVM Jig, and this dongle looks sleek and nice, wonder what the board they are using.
    however they are using Ultra capacitors, which is a little concerning because it's $10 dongle, which means they are really cheap.

    comparing it with NS-Atomosphere

    yes, i checked mysef with 3 jigs from the RCM clip, thier own jig.
    so it's smaller by half jig then NS-Atomosphere, but it uses Ultra capacitors

    huh? so you don't need to inject any payload? i think if you press the key the payload will change?

    Well damn that looks pretty nice. Still prefer to have a li-ion battery, but loving the design on this one.

    You know the multiloader code that boots those three payloads is from @mattytrog on this very site, right?

    This discovery you guys made here in this loader was developed right on this very site open source, taken by these jackasses and resold to you. I am strongly doubtful that it has any supercaps at all, my guess is that it has a couple of 470u electrolytics (but ultra, of course) that will barely work long enough to send a payload before they collapse. Don't support this bullshit - if you want a loader under $10, buy a trinket and drop matty's code on it. Or go ahead - wait 3w for the slow boat from China for a ripoff of matty's code with a no return policy.

    My 2c.

    China has decided to OWN this market, lol. I was thinking there might be a $10 dongle set {without a coupon} by the end of the year. But, at this rate, I'm changing that price to $5! Jk, lmfao... maybe... :creep:

    The one I got showed capacitors in the pictures but when I got it it was just a crusty old dead Li-on that won't charge past 3.0v

    To Be Clear, it was not the one this thread is about. A different one off AliExpress

    Made by 1 of those I have on ignore. I, personally, don't see the use of it, but at least these companies that offer those things don't slap a new name and encryption on it.

    Since we're wearing capes, I took a flight to your samd commerce thread in this section.

    Not bad for $10, but it's hilarious how nobody can seem to make a payload injector as small as TX. All these clones are freaking HUGE.
