I don't think I'm able to share the links here as some people will report and it's infractable I think, even though I'm not affiliated with the seller.
I PMed you the seller I usually buy from.

The price usually varies but now it's 62 sgd for $50 credits. You can use singtel dash on mondays to get 5 off 50 to make it $57.
Can PM me too? Thanks!

Question

Hi all,

Days ago I accidentally dropped my right side joycon and after that it got a little wonky

When I try to detach it from the console and play in vertical/horizontal mode, it fails to detect my right side joycon. I tried to charge (oddly enough it always shows 100% fully charged) and retried. It doesn't work. I tried to resync, same thing it doesn't work. There are just no green lights at the side of the joycon

BUT the funny thing is, in handheld mode the right joycon works absolutely fine...

I want to understand what is exactly going on here? Is there any places/reputable shops I can get someone to examine it and try to fix it? I bought my Switch 2 years back so warranty is not valid anymore.

Or will it be cheaper to just buy 1 x Right Joycon?

Thanks

Sounds like a problem with the SL SR ribbon. It's a common problem, and I had it and I didn't drop my joycon. It works when it is attached but not detected when unattached and no lights on the 4 led.

Search for the replacement parts on Shopee, Lazada, Aliexpress etc and get the screwdriver too. I fixed it myself for around $6 to $8. If you want external help then you can search on Nintendo Switch Singapore Facebook group but it is much more expensive.

hi guys
planning get a powerbank for my switch. i now Anker is the official endorse switch powerbank but any issue if using other third party powerbanks ?
Most powerbanks that can do 2.4A on 5V is able to charge a switch in portable mode. PD powerbanks on the other hand can charge while you are playing. Can go challenger flagship at bugis to try the more branded powerbanks.

For me im using an iwalk powerbank with no issues for my switch lite.

I also bought mine recently at GameXtreme with CapitalMall vouchers, in the end only paid $64.

Nothing beats the Pro Controller for Switch. Not only have HD rumble and wake features, the batt life is also around 40hrs, though a full charge could take up to 6hrs. Most 3rd party ones usually do not have that kind of batt life.
And has the sensor for amiibo as well. 3rd party often doesnt include this.

True. So the original Pro Controller’s price have some justification to it, albeit the $99 price tag.
