Nintendo Switch Battery Not Removable

While it's not really that big of a deal to me, the Nintendo Switch's FCC filings show that the battery will not be replaceable. While some may bemoan this development, how many of you have swapped out batteries in your 3DS or NDS Lite. I'm sure there are a few, and while it is not specifically "removable", I'm sure it will be able to be serviced - if the device actually lasts longer than the battery.

When the Wii U gamepad was panned for dying too soon, Nintendo was able to release an easy to install high-capacity battery pack that boosted the runtime to 8 hours. That won't be possible with the Switch. Consumers will be stuck with however much battery life Nintendo's next game console has at launch.
