Nintendo Switch: Tips for Telling if It is New or Old Spec!


Hi, after seeing some Nintendo switches advertised etc I thought I would give people some tips on what to look for, especially with the distinction between the old switch and the new and improved battery life.

Here is a link: https://www.pocket-lint.com/games/news/nintendo/148957-how-to-tell-if-you-re-buying-the-new-or-old-nintendo-switch

However, if you are buying online, you can use the USP or EAN number and check with a website such as this: https://www.barcodelookup.com/ - this will tell you if its the old or new spec but you do need to know the specs.

This is really important as I have seen devices advertised with the new box, but have the old EAN.

This is important to check especially for new sites that are popping up and advertising them even though established retailers are not getting stock.
