    About This Video: The Nintendo Switch Lite is the 3DS "killer". This handheld device plays almost all Nintendo Switch games but doesn't dock to a TV and does not have Joy Cons that come off of the main console. Overall though, it's a great little handheld.

    Hey tronics, I have a couple questions for you.
    I got the blue lite and I'm looking to replace the white buttons with the black ones as well as replace the Analogs in it with the new updated analog sticks (That supposedly don't get the drift.)
    The buttons (minus the DPAD) appear to be exactly the same as the buttons for regular joycons so that won't be hard to find but my I don't know where to get the updated analogsticks? I was going to do it all at the same time while I had the console open.
    Another question is the DPAD the same size as the DPAD in the pro controller? I don't have calipers to measure them but I know you do if you don't mind checking that out to let me know.

    There does not seem to be a single video on youtube on soldering a USB3.0 Type Micro-B port (replacing it), its the one with 2 halves to it and one half can be used for USB2.0 if needed. This is typical on USB3.0 portable hard drives like WD My Passport. Can you make a video on how to replace this port?

    Hi, news around the world are pointing that Nintendo didn't fix the analogues on the Switch Lite. From what I've seen from your Switch V2 tear down, the Lite seems to have the updated analogue sticks, but could you clear this out ? Thank you.
