Homemade Nintendo Switch Pro

  • Published on May 22, 2019
  • Hi, this video shows a homemade 1080p 10" Nintendo Switch Pro. It uses a Nintendo Switch mainboard along with the fewest components necessary to make a docked Switch (no screen/digitizer, no speakers, Joy-Con rails and no chassis). Then these are placed along with a power bank and portable dock and other parts to make up a larger 1080p Nintendo Switch.
    Tell me what you think down in the comments.
    Let me know what you would like to see in a MK2 version. Maybe.... a Kickstand, Female USB charging socket, different colour scheme, smaller screen, lighter?
    Many thanks, Vince :-)

    Do one while using something like www.amazon.co.uk/WIMAXIT-Portable-Monitor-1920x1080-Built/dp/B07J4JH6Z8/ref=asc_df_B07J4JH6Z8/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310785434040&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5031556617286570065&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9044955&hvtargid=pla-561746278453&psc=1.
    Get a custom back created and strip the internals of the switch so you can keep the profile under 1.5cm

    Hardwire the controllers so they don’t run wirelessly? Like when they are docked on the switch.

    Hi vince thanks mate i build one following your steps however i have one issue. How did you get the heat sink of the switch attached because as you know definatly we cant use screws it seems in your photos you glued it on at the screw entrance however would it smell or leak fumes if the heat sink heated?

    Isn't this a bit problematic? The actuall switch battery and the joycons are constantly going to be fully charged by the battery pack. But when the battery pack dies, everything is still fully charged, except the screen won't work. That's a bit of a waste of battery life isn't it?

    Very good work.
    What about a real small Switch (about half of the original size) 720p
    in a normal sized Switch 1.440p
    in a big one 2.880p - would that be possible and how much each one would cost estimated?
    Especially if using newer Tegra Chips and more faster internal/RAM?
    I would love to have a Switch as fast as PS 4 or even PS5.

Well I got a destiny edition of normal 500gb ps4 and I previously ordered the ps4 vr headset, turtle beach stealth 600, camera, vr controllers, a knumbskull ps4 stand for the vr head seat and turtle beach headphones and also brought res 7 vr, res4 ,days gone, don’t knock twice vr, Rick and Marty vr, doom vr, until dawn rush of blood vr, all the vr stuff and games were all brand new of amazon and cost 430 pound just for all vr stuff, and 170 pound for ps4 with one controller second hand and cex give 24 month contract garauntee so I’m chuffed Vince! I’m thinking of getting all the bits you said that you would need to buy if I wanted to start doing what your doing, so I’m just gunna have a little go as a hoppy, by the way thanks mate medway kent,
