Nintendo advises not to play during heat waves

The Japanese division of the manufacturer Nintendo has set up a Twitter account where users can ask them not to use their Switch when the temperature is above 35 degrees Celsius. The console may turn off when it gets too hot.

We are currently occupied with the heat wave, as you may have noticed. Meteo France also highlighted seven French regions, including Haute-Garonne and Tarn-et-Garonne as well as Lot-et-Garonne and Gironde. “A strong heat episode sets in the south Garonne and the lower Rhone Valley. The institution promises that Wednesday’s minimums will range between 19 and 21 degrees and maximums will reach 36 and 39 degrees. Meteo France predicts that it will continue to be scorching hot in the southern part of the country over the next few days.

These high temperatures can also affect France, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom. This is why it’s not surprising that high temperatures can have a significant impact on the functionality of electronic devices such as our computers and our gaming consoles.

Nintendo warns Switch users of high temperatures
Nintendo has warned Switch users about possible heat damage via its Twitter account. The current high temperatures could cause the console to turn off automatically. The temperature of the main unit can rise if the Nintendo Switch is placed in warm areas.

It should be used in an area with a temperature between 5 and 35 degrees Celsius. The temperature of the main unit could rise if the outlet and inlet air are blocked. Nintendo suggested that the airflow be improved around the intake-exhaust ports. According to the manufacturer, “if the temperature in the central unit is too high, it will automatically go to sleep to protect its main unit.” BigN also suggests that players use a vacuum to clean the air inlets and outlets. This will ensure optimal cooling. Nintendo had warned Switch users in July 2021 about the potential effects heat can have on their devices.
