How long will the newly announced Remote Play handheld PS Portal’s battery last? While there were rumours recently it could dip as low as a couple of hours, Sony’s told CNET that it’s aiming for the same battery life as the DualSense controller. Depending on what you read, that can average anywhere from four hours to 12 hours – although our experience is generally on the lower side.

Considering the PS Portal is designed to be used in the home, as a kind of secondary screen device when someone’s already occupying the television or when you’re upstairs in bed, we don’t think this device necessarily needs a gigantic battery. What’s the sweet spot for you? Would you be satisfied with a solid six or so hours? Let us know in the comments section below.
