This new Nintendo Switch model will get 4.5-9 hours of battery life. This is almost double that of the original Nintendo Switch For example, you’ll get 5.5 hours playing The Legend of Zelda. This compares to 2.5-6.5 hours with the current Nintendo Switch (three hours whilst playing The Legend of Zelda) Comparatively, the Switch Lite will get 3-7 hours of battery life (four hours whilst playing Zelda)
As far as we can tell so far, this is the only change with the new Nintendo Switch model. Obviously, there might be some other changes under the hood that Nintendo don’t want to confuse consumers with, but we’ll keep you posted.
