I think I didn't explain why I went for the shell. It is because there is a possibility of bricking my switch when using a third party dock in dock mode.

I originally wanted to get the jumpgate (during their kickstarter after I already got the shell and installed the original switch dock parts inside) because it can display on the nintendo switch screen while the dock is not connected to a HDMI output and it can be used as a USB C hub with a laptop. I cancelled my support when I saw this video:

The same YouTube also made a more recent video on the same topic:

the engineer for genki wrote an article on why some 3rd party docks having problems, can read if you are interested.

Maxsoft not honouring warranty for Joy-con

Hi anybody facing this problem from Maxsoft? I have a Joy Con having drifting issue and within warranty. Bought from Lazada with warranty (higher price than those export sets).

However when I emailed Adrian he said need to bring the packaging box over. ?! Who keeps the box after opening? From his tone, he looks like his is going to evade the warranty repair for my joy con. Is there anything we can do?

All these claims from Nintendo saying will fix our joy cons for free even out of warranty but these local distributors are doing otherwise.

that is what i've been told when i buy the joy con at the gameshop. they told me to keep the box for warranty purpose.

by right Maxsoft should put sticker on the box to tell us to keep the box like what Sandisk do with their SSD.

Do you still have your receipt and which lazada shop you buy from? The serial number on your machine at the bottom if it is local can be check at maxsoft side if it is local. Why keep the box is because there is serial number on it. Your joycon packaging also have serial number on it.

That say local distributor are not nintendo. Fixing joycon for free only happen at usa side not all region.
They will fix your joycon within warranty period that is 3months from your date of purchase

Hi Guys, wanna ask can the switch do a direct USB C to USB C video output without a dock?
I bought this monitor but couldn't use USB C for video output.

I'm using a switch with serial number XAJ7.....and even update firmware from 4.01 to 8.10 but still doesn't works.

Don't think it's possible without dock. Switch USB type C port is different from those laptop one if I'm not wrong..

If you mean whether the switch can drive this monitor using usb v,without a dock, answer is yes because Iím using it.
