Strengths of the product
Nintendo Switch Results Undocked: 11hrs 31mins Docked: 6hrs 32mins (Yes, it can power the dock with a TV attached via HDMI which takes additional power...impressive) Also it fits in the Mario aluminum case with the Joy Cons attached to the Switch plus a few games. Was not expecting this. It has no sharp corners like some other batteries which have damaged some screen. Total Bonus. Charges in under 6 hours (maybe less as I never noticed it was done as I was expecting longer) with the Nintendo Switch power supply
Weaknesses of the product
At this early stage I cannot find any weaknesses. Even the price was insane. Less than most regular (none Power Delivery) batteries, some half the capacity. I will update longer term use on durability.
I was hesitant to pick up this battery as there were no reviews anywhere. Not even on the Kopplen website and that made me nervous as if you read the 1 out of 5 star reviews for just about any battery on Amazon etc, there is always someone who tested the battery and often discover the mAh is way less than claimed (like half in many cases). Anker seems to be the exception. This Kopplen battery was a gamble especially since you cannot return (considered a consumable). The price was right at Memory Expresses here in Vancouver who tend to carry decent brands so I took the risk. Here are my results with the Nintendo Switch (as power hungry device). To test I made sure both the Kopplen 20,000 mAh and Nintendo Switch were fully charged. I turned on the Switch, cracked the volume and brightness to MAX then started the stopwatch as I got into a Mario Kart match. At the end of the first race I simply taped one of the Joy Cons in the up position so that the Switch would not dim after inactivity and simply allowed the instant reply to loop over and over again. The reply is real time 3D versus a movie which as evidenced by the warm back of the Switch was pushing the hardware (perhaps not as much as BotW as I have read). Here are the results when it finally all shutdown. Undocked: 11hrs 31mins Docked: 6hrs 32mins (Yes, it can power the dock with a TV attached via HDMI which takes power...impressive) Reviews of the Anker Switch 20,100 mAh PD battery also tested my others to allow about 11.5hrs of uninterrupted play. I was honestly not expecting the Kopplen to perform just as well. It motivated me to pick up a second one for long haul flights and to write this review as I am sure others are avoiding this great battery due to the reasons I stated.
