Power Saving tips for your Switch

Need to save power for your switch? Well with its estimated 3 hour battery life you better start learning to take some short cuts. Here is how:


Power Saving for the Nintendo Switch

First I need to state that the battery life much like the WiiU Gamepad is very short for the switch. Lasting around 3 hours of breath of the wild. You can get it up to 4 to 5 if you follow these tips, some do how ever involve methods of faster charges.

Tip 1 Brightness: 

The nintendo switch like any smart device uses a touch screen backlite LCD display, this back light can and will drain the hell out of your power, the key is to lower the screen brightness indoors.  Adjusting this is estial to making your battery last longer. Out side you can not really do much about brightness, you will need it bright to be able to see but you do not need it eye budging bright.

Tip 2 Airplane mode:

Airplane mode will disable all wireless transitions, this means the constant Bluetooth signaling, so you will need to attach your joy cons if you want to keep playing and sorry p2 you can't play now. It will also disable amibo NFC which means you won't be able to use any amibos at all with it enabled. You can say good bye to wifi so no online what so ever, no facebook posting, no tweeting, no eshop browsing, no friend messaging, esc.

Doing airplane mode will heavily positively make your battery last longer but it has a lot of cons.

Tip 3 Changing your theme

As sites like blackle have laid claim to saving power by simply changing a all white pixel website the darker colors actually take less electricity to show on a display. This is actually true, so changing your theme to the darker theme actually saves just a small smigit amount of power for your battery.

If you want to read more on it follow this, and I know most people no longer take wikipedia as creditable but keep in mind to follow the sources if other wise you are still in disbelief on how darker pixels can save energy over lighter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackle


Tip 4 (for faster charging) Change TV display settings

Currently in every video I have seen people complaining that the switch doesn't charge fast enough in the charging dock. By default it selects auto for both display resolution and RGB options.
Both of which you can select different options, lowering it to 480p, and limited color will allow the switch to charge faster.  Let me be strait, on default settings the switch will not drain faster than it charges, it will how ever if you set tv to 1080p with full color detail. It will look better yes, but it will drain more than it charges, and most tips and tricks will tell you to switch it to 1080p with full color detail to make it look better but not tell you that it will drain faster than it charges. Keep in mind it will still last longer than the 3 hours how ever, it will take much much longer when docked into a tv to die, and if you leave it in the dock like I do it will be fine if you use 1080p with full. Just keep in mind if your unit is almost dead to switch over the TV settings to 480p with limited color.

Tip 5 Sleep & Power

Simply pressing the power button lightly will put it into sleep mode, so will idling, you can how ever change the idle time to be much sooner, which will also save more battery life. But how ever in Sleep mode it is still draining from the battery to keep it in a standby state to come on from last point. Meaning it is just heavily reduced power saving rather than power being entirely off.

If you want to turn off the switch completely you will need to hold down the power button longer till a power options dialog box comes up and select power options, then select power off. This will turn off the unit saving power when not in use. This will also allow for much faster charging in the dock station so I would heavily recommend powering off the unit when possible, instead of simply using sleep options.

Tip 6 Power Banks

When all else fails you can simply use a 5v/3a or 5v/1a power bank that accepts usb c, like their official car chargers output. The power brick does a 15v/2.6a by default, don't worry about this how ever so much as the car charger like I already mentioned.

If you are a electrical engineer or electrician you can make your own battery pack if you so choose to do. I have done this in the past with doing the math needed to make a standard USB  B with a AA battery pack gutting a few things, but it was for usb B not C. Keep in mind USB C is something that is new to me, the switch is actually the first USB C device I have owned so I can not give you a blueprint to the wiring behind making a 3 AA battery pack w/ resistance work with USB C. And to be honest I lost the battery pack in several moves.

Aside from that power banks can be useful they can charge your device or make the current charge last longer, but they also need to be charged since you are attaching a battery to your battery to make up for your batteries lack of power, with that being said lithium ion batteries do have a risk of exploding.  Both power banks and the switch use them. I would recommend one that uses 5v/3a USB C simply to avoid issues.
