Gaming has evolved in a million ways never deemed possible. There has been so much developments in the gaming industry that companies invest much on it these days. From the basic concept plots, refillable tapes for the vintage gaming devices, we now have wireless control connectivity and unlimited selection of games to try out. One giant brand that has evolved with time and has contributed a lot in the evolution of gaming is the company, Nintendo. Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company whose headquarters is in Kyoto, Japan. Nintendo is one of the world’s largest video game companies by market capitalization.
Today, the latest development announced by the company is the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch is 4 inches high, 9.4 inches long, and 0.55 inches deep. It is composed of a touch screen device with a slide on controller for gaming. This is the company’s most powerful console yet. With its portability features, what we all wanted when we engage ourselves into gaming is its lifespan, right? To have a better experience with gaming, backup batteries are essential so as to not cut the fever short. The Switch has an internal, 4,310 mAh lithium ion battery.
The free battery lasts between 2.5 hours to 6 hours of game time. You might not feel the need for extra juice if you’re not constantly on the move. If you are, however, this tip might come in handy for you. Battery packs that theoretically should have charged the Switch more efficiently often worked at near identical or even lower performance. With all the trial and errors of almost all the market has produced to address this need, a lot of difference has come to our conclusion. Battery pack efficiency is measured by voltage and amperage. Voltage is the amount of electrical force that a pack produces. Amperage, or amps, measures the strength at which the electrical force travels to the device.

Multiply voltage and amperage, and you find the wattage, or power, of the battery pack. If you try and see the back portion of the console, the indicated power supply for the device is 15V/2.6A. This equals to 39 watts. On the dock, the value indicated pertained to the input power; the output power is at 15V/1.2A, or 18 watts. Every Time you connect the console to, let’s say, the television, it releases 18 watts during that period. Let’s not get fooled of the quick charge features some products claim in the market today.
The Switch is not “quick-charge compatible” so it does more damage than good. We recommend battery packs that output at least 5V/2.1A (10.5 watts). Below 10.5 watts, the device doesn’t charge well; above it will damage the battery itself. If you use that recommended wattage during play time or when you’re on the go, it was found that the battery still gains 1 to 2 percent of charge per 10 minutes. So if ever you feel the need to charge, let your Switch take a nap. It loads better and may last longer.
