I’ve had some issues with my left joy-con for about a year now but I’ve recently noticed that they started getting worse and I’m hoping someone can shine some light on what could be done. Here’s the issues I’m running into:
- Left joy-con runs out of battery faster than the right
- It starts giving me “Low battery” warnings about 2-4 hours before it dies, while the right one will give me a warning about 1 hour before
- Depleted the battery on the joy-con yesterday and set both to charge on a docked console overnight — the right joy-con was fully charged but the left one still said low battery. Also when connected to the console, it doesn’t charge the joy-cons anymore.
Could this be a battery issue?
I have no connectivity issues whatsoever when they’re connected to the console or used wirelessly. I recently disconnected/unpaired the controllers from my console and paired them again but that didn’t start the charging process. Also tried updating the controllers but it says they’re up to date. I don’t use this console on a regular basis since I work and study and overall it looks almost brand new, I’d say…
PS: I also sent the joy-cons to Nintendo twice last year for another issue and they sent them back both times saying they couldn’t replicate the issue so I’m not sure if I want to send them in for “repairs” again lol
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!
