It doesn't look like the new model with improved battery life has done much to help boost sales of the Switch. The Switch Lite should help boost sales by a significant amount. 

Yeah I never expected the Mariko-powered regular Switch would be a big hardware booster since Nintendo is treating it as a silent revision and as such the average consumer probably knows nothing about it. 

The Lite is the main event.

I am surprised Nintendo didn't advertise the release of the regular Switch with improved battery life a bit more. Some 3DS/2DS owners might have been waiting to get a Switch until a model with improved battery life was made available. I only play the Switch docked, but people who mainly play it on the go have to worry about the battery only lasting a few hours.
