Nintendo Gives The Switch A Refresh That Includes Longer Battery Life

Posted by at 1:05 pm on July 17, 2019

A new version of the Nintendo Switch–separate from the previously announced Switch Lite–is nearly here. The original launch model Switch touted between two and half to six and a half hours of playtime. However, the revised version will deliver four and a half to nine hours of battery life. The revised Switch model will cost the same ($300 or roughly £280). According to Nintendo’s product page, it will be available in stores soon.

This is not an entirely new model of Switch in the same way that the Lite is, instead serving as a replacement for the original version (albeit one with a desirable new perk with its battery life). It’s possible that this is new iteration of the console that prompted a recent FCC filing, which suggested that the existing Switch could see some changes to its internal components.

As noted by Nintendo when the Switch first launched, the battery life depends on the game that is being played, as a title like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild drains power at a much faster rate than other, less intensive titles.
