Nintendo has issued a PSA about the recommended surrounding temperatures to play the Nintendo Switch.
As explained in a thread on Twitter, Switch owners are strongly recommended to only use their Nintendo Switch in places where the surrounding temperature is between 5 to 35 degrees Celsius. This is to prevent the console from overheating, which may cause the Switch to enter sleep mode for protection.
Other measures to prevent overheating include ensuring that the Switch’s air intakes and exhaust ports are not blocked by obstructions or dust, as well as ensuring that the Switch dock is not placed somewhere where heat accumulates. You can check out a diagram of where the ports are located below:
