Remember how dbrand's switch skins flopped due to issues with the adhesive? Well, they don't anymore! And that's what this topic is about. In case you don't remember, or you've been living under a rock, here's what happened. A company by the name of dbrand, who makes skins for all sorts of devices saw a big opportunity in selling skins for the joy-con controllers on the Switch since there were only three colours (yes, I'm Canadian) available at the time. What they and others quickly found out, however, was that the adhesive that was being used on the skins permanently damaged the plastic on the controllers. They have been working hard for months now trying to perfect it, and here they are! (pic related) The company tweeted this out: Nintendo Switch skins are live: ✅ 7 new Switch-exclusive materials ✅ Tempered Glass 2-packs for $9.95 ✅ Ships immediately ✅ Won't damage your Switch¹ may damage your wallet The skins come in red, yellow, blue, pink, orange, purple, and green as well as matte white, camo black and black carbon fibre. The same colours are also available on the back of the Switch itself and the dock's accent colours and faceplate. I'll leave a link below if anyone wants to check them out for themselves: https://dbrand.com/shop/nintendo-switch-skin PostScript: Thanks to @Buzz for adding in that new sound when you like a topic!
It appears that many of the problems people are reporting with skins thanks to the help of third-party company Dbrand might not actually be as dangerous as they seemed. While, yes, Dbrand and many other 3rd party skins do damage the switch and should be avoided until fixed, it appears that not all skins are currently bad for the switch. For example, skins by the company PDP (such as this one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MZ9QJ0Y/?tag=iconixmedia2k-20) appear to work just fine. Reviews show that users of PDP products, at least those I've personally checked, are not experiencing any issues related to the adhesive damaging the switch, like Dbrand users were experiencing. This means that skins are NOT always going to be a no-go for the switch. You can all enjoy your beauty in just a little while.
