The PS5 controller battery life could be much longer than the DualShock 4, after more images of the DualSense PS5 controller (opens in new tab) have leaked online.
As seen in the Twitter thread below (via VGC (opens in new tab)), posted by someone who apparently for an accessories company, the DualSense holds the capacity for 1560mA batteries.
Check it out in the tweets below:
hands on #PS5 controller #Dualsense5 , just got a short test on it. The battery capacity is 1560mA, much more than the PS4 one. pic.twitter.com/bS0wako69JAugust 12, 2020
That threshold is roughly 50% larger than that of the PS4's DualShock 4 controller, corroborating with recent rumours (as reported in this Reddit thread (opens in new tab)) that the DualSense battery life will last around "3 to 4 hours" longer than the former device.
That said, the DualSense is doing a lot more work than its predecessor, boasting new technology such as haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and more, so it may eat away at that improved battery capacity just as quickly as the DualShock 4 did with its inferior equivalent.
Sony has promised more details to come with regards to PS5 (opens in new tab) hardware, though it's unclear when and how it plans to unveil further information, including the much-anticipated news on the PS5 price (opens in new tab) and release date.
Given that the DualSense is already in the hands of certain third-parties outside of development, it's likely we'll hear more very soon, with that Holiday 2020 launch window nearing ever closer.
