Trying to get your hands on the new Nintendo Switch that has longer battery life? Make sure you buy the right model.
When Nintendo quietly updated the Switch's hardware with a revision that gave the hybrid portable console nearly twice as much battery life, it didn't do much to distinguish between the new and old models. Unlike the upcoming Nintendo Switch Lite, there's no new naming convention, no design changes and no new colors. There is, however, a new box.
Fans looking for the latest model will want to look for consoles shipping in a red box. After that, take a look at the back and make sure it has these details:
Model number: HAC-001(-01).
Product serial number: Begins with XKW.
Product description: Battery life approximately 4.5 to 9 hours.
