Update: It's also worth noting that the DualSense has a 4.2V cell compared to the DualShock 4's 3.7V cell, so another upgrade to suggest battery life may be longer.
Original Story: More leaked photographs of the DualSense controller have been shared on social media, this time confirming that the PlayStation 5 controller has much bigger battery capacity than its predecessor. While the DualShock 4 offers about 1,000 mAh, its successor sits at 1,560 mAh – a noteworthy increase. This could, of course, lead to longer battery life.
However, it’s worth remembering that there’s much more going on with the DualSense controller, in terms of the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. As such, it’s possible it may require more juice to run, and thus you may not get much more uninterrupted playtime out of it. We’ll need to wait until we have our own to confirm, but for now things are looking promising.
