Seeing picks of this by others, I guess not many people interested in who is supplying batteries to Nintendo Switch?
ATL/Amperex was the company that provided the replacements of the ill fated batteries that powered the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. But reports blamed the design of the phone itself for overheating and exploding phones instead on the batteries.
The people said it is unlikely that Samsung would stop buying batteries from Amperex, which is known as ATL, at least for now, because of the supplier’s lead in technology and production capacity.
ATL has close ties with Apple Inc. in battery research and development, people familiar with the matter said. Nintendo Co. will also use ATL batteries for its new hand-held hybrid console Switch, according to people familiar with the matter. Nintendo’s new game console will go on sale in March.
A Nintendo spokesman declined to comment about battery suppliers. Apple wasn’t immediately available for comment.
