Sony has already revealed the technology and some of the features that the DualSense, the PlayStation 5 controller, will offer. However, the company has not talked about a fundamental issue: the controller’s battery.

Fortunately, a bit of information has just surfaced on this from a person who claims to work with Sony and Microsoft on console accessory design. The source had the opportunity to do several tests with the DualSense and shared some interesting details.

It was previously noted that the DualSense will have a good battery life; however, no information was given on the capacity of its rechargeable battery. Thanks to the informant, we already know this important information.

Reveal battery capacity of DualSense, control of PS5

Twitter user Galaxy666 (via Push Square) shared a few more photos of the DualSense. He also stated that he has done some tests with the remote and analyzed various aspects of the product, such as the duration of its battery.

Thanks to this, we know that the PlayStation 5 controller will have a 1560 mAh rechargeable battery. Although the figure is not very high, it is higher than what the DualShock 4 of PlayStation 4 offer.

The same informant specified that the batteries of the first DualShock 4 were 800 mAh. Subsequently, Sony made a change to improve it, so the newer PlayStation 4 controllers feature a 1000 mAh battery.

Because of this, many believe that the 1560 mAh of the DualSense will offer greater autonomy. However, there are those who think that the difference will not be very great, since the controller will take up more technology, which could imply a greater use of energy and, therefore, a battery life similar to that of the DualShock 4.

On the other hand, it is noted that the DualSense will have a 4.2V cell compared to the 3.7V DualShock 4. The source assured that the remote is better in terms of ergonomics and the quality of its buttons.

In addition, the Twitter user assured that he works on compatibility tests with the Sony remote control, hence he has a control unit. Lastly, he stated that for obvious reasons, he cannot share a detailed video of the DualSense.
