Pundits feared the worst when Sony initially revealed a three hour run-time, but now that the system is out in the wild, reports actually put the system's life somewhere closer to the region of five hours — even when all of its features are turned on.

While five hours is decent, no-one could ever argue with more run-time — and that's where Nyko's Power Grip comes in. Announced at CES this week, the grip promises to triple the PS Vita's battery life, as well as offer a more comfortable playing solution.

Ok, so the big grips do look a bit unwieldy, but if it's comfortable, then who cares? More battery!
