Besides issuing an advisory on third party charging cables and power banks, Nintendo announced a few measures Switch owners should keep in mind when charging their console.
Here are the list of items:
- Charge the Nintendo Switch in an environment where the temperature is between 5℃ to 35℃ (41°F to 95°F).
- Charge your Nintendo Switch at least once every 6 months. If the system isn’t charged for a long period of time, surplus electrical discharge may damage the console’s ability to charge.
- Repeatedly charging the Nintendo Switch will slowly reduce its overall battery life over time.
- In the event your Nintendo Switch fails to charge or it has a very short battery life, you will need to change the console’s battery by contacting Nintendo Support.
