How long does the DualSense battery last? We tell you our experience


For a few days now, we have told you a lot about the impressive capabilities of the Dual SenseHowever, one of the main questions that have arisen has to do with the duration of its battery, an issue that undoubtedly worries, since the DualShock 4 of the PS4 suffered a little from this. Below we tell you a little about our experience in this section with the control of the PS5.

It is important to mention that the charging time of the control depends on several factors. The first and most important is what kind of game you are using it with. Obviously, those that use the haptic functions of the hand more, as well as its adaptive triggers, will consume much more energy, unlike what happens, for example, if you only use it for PS4 games, for example. Also, the intensity setting of your LEDs can also be a factor.

Anyway, having it in its default configuration, I’ll tell you that playing Astro’s Playroom, a game that greatly exploits all the new features of this hardware, we had a battery that lasted about 8 hours being fully charged until completely drained. In the case of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the battery lasted me about 12 hours and in the case of only using it to play PS4, load extended to almost 15.

If you ask me, I think that is a very acceptable duration, especially when you consider that if you charge it via USB-C, it is ready in just a couple of hours to return to action. Of course, the efficiency and durability of the battery of the Dual Sense It will come to less with use and with the passage of time. Let’s hope that the degradation is not going to be so intense, because in effect, it is a control with a lot of technology inside that requires a lot of energy to work.
