  • Portable consoles featuring internal batteries need to be charged occasionally to maintain the health of the battery, as a drained battery left for a long time can run into problems.
  • Nintendo has reminded people of this fact with a tweet about the Switch, and it's gone viral.
  • The Japanese Nintendo support information account made the tweet below on September 28.
  • It translates to "The battery built into the game console may become unchargeable if it has not been charged or used for too long.
  • "????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????' pic twitter.com/Je8QNH5SNT " ??????"
