PS5’s DualSense Reportedly Has Over 50% More Battery Capacity Than DualShock 4

Sony have revealed plenty of things about the PS5’s new controller, the DualSense, but just like the console itself, there’s a lot that we don’t know about it yet. Also just like the console, some of the details that Sony haven’t yet revealed are among the most important ones- like the controller’s battery life, for instance. That in particular, however, may have come to light from an unofficial source.

Over on Twitter, @Galaxyrain666 – who claims to work for a company that manufactures controllers and accessories for both Sony and Microsoft – recently posted images of the DualSense, saying that they got hands on time with the controller, before stating that the controller’s battery capacity is 1560mA. That isn’t information that Sony have publicly divulged yet, but it is something that people manufacturing the controller would of course know about.

When the DualShock 4 launched, it had a battery capacity of 800mA, while later models of the controller were bumped up to 1000mA. It’s worth mentioning, however, that the gap between the DualShock 4 and DualSense’s battery capacities won’t be perfectly representative of their battery lives, since the DualSense will probably demand more consumption thanks to its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Of course, this is all still unverified information, and until Sony officially talks about this time, it’s hard to be sure about this one way or another. Earlier this year, they did say that the DualSense would “maintain a strong battery life”, but that’s really all they’ve said on the matter so far.

Recently, unverified images of a black DualSense controller leaked online, leading to speculation that additional colour options for the controller and the PS5 itself could be announced soon. Sony have previously said that that’s something they will talk about at a later date.
