There's nothing worse than taking your Nintendo Switch on a long plane ride or some other extended trip, just for the battery to die after a few hours (depending on how much battery the game uses). Fortunately, Nintendo has finally answered this problem with a newer Switch model that extends the console's battery life and upgrades it from about 2.5-6.5 hours of playtime to 4.5-9 hours of charging. The new model is now available at some retailers, and if you were hesitant to postpone another $ 300 USD just to improve your battery life, GameStop's latest purchase offer could get you re-examined.
Assuming you no longer need your original switch, you can trade with the $ 225 launch model, up from the usual $ 200, as part of a limited-time game in the GameStop stores. Of course, that is the trading value of a switch in "fully functioning condition." This brings the revision of the $ 300 Switch to $ 75, but you do not need to use the trade value exclusively for it. This offer is valid until 1
Switch image Audit's upgraded battery life may be the show's star, but the Tegra X1 processor also runs cooler, which in turn keeps your switch from heating up as much. However, it is important to note that this is not a Switch Pro or equivalent of the upgraded consoles that the PS4 and Xbox One received. You will not see any increases in performance or charging time.
Of course, if you would rather buy your old Switch for a Nintendo Switch Lite, you can use your $ 225 trade credit toward a pre-order for it instead. Switch Lite costs $ 200 and will be released on September 20, five days after this submission campaign ends, so you will have to live without your console for a bit. You can pre-order Switch Lite here. But if you prefer not to trade with your Switch at all, or just don't own one yet, you can buy the new switch through the links below.
