According to a new report from Spain, it looks like the Joy-Con controllers are capable of charging the Nintendo Switch tablet once they’re connected together. This would basically allow, once you have Joy-Con batteries at full capacity, to have Switch’s tablet last a bit longer when it’s going low battery or empty battery at all.
“One of the things that most called our attention was knowing that the console in handheld mode, along with the Joy-Con will have mutual feedback,” the report from Juegosadn says.
“What does this mean? Well, when we play with the Nintendo switch in a handheld mode with the Joy-Con, these can charge the console and vice-versa. This will happen when some of those parts have a low battery, this way we will be able to play some extra time. For example, if the battery of the console is at 10% and the joy con are at 100%, these will charge the console.”
Nintendo Switch’s battery is said to last for 3 and 6 hours of gameplay, depending on the title you’re playing.
The website also offers a look at what’s under the dock. It looks pretty empty, with component occupying very little space, and that’s not a surprise: Nintendo has always stated that the main console is Switch’s tablet, which you can also carry with you once you’re not home.
