A DualSense V2 controller has appeared on Best Buy Canada’s website, leaking an improved model of the PS5 controller with as much as 12 hours of battery life.
The DualSense V2 is priced at $89.99 CAD, which is identical price as an original DualSense.
This revised controller apparently options “exceptional 12-hour battery life, on a full charge” per the Finest Purchase itemizing, which might make a big uplift from the roughly 8 hours that’s anticipated from the unique DualSense, and much more of an uplift in comparison with what you may get out of a DualSense Edge professional controller).
In apply, we might count on that precise battery life relies on the options that you just’re utilizing and video games that you just’re enjoying. With a built-in microphone, and variable energy for the haptic suggestions motors and the adaptive triggers, there’s lots of gadgetry stuffed into every DualSense controller. You may get higher battery life for decreasing the energy of the set off results, for instance, and sure video games use the triggers greater than others.
What’s not clear is how Sony could be attaining this enchancment. Are they merely including a bigger battery to the DualSense controller? Each the DualSense V1 and the DualSense Edge use the identical 1560mAh battery pack. If Sony elevated that in dimension to round 2250mAh, they could have the ability to declare 12 hours. Alternatively, they may have made tweaks to the remainder of the controller, making the chipsets extra environment friendly, modifying the triggers and haptic motors, and making energy financial savings that means. Most certainly, it’s a mix of the 2 – Sony has already fiddled with the inner workings in the previous few years.
It’s a pleasing shock to see Sony really addressing one of many essential bug bears with the PlayStation 5, however whereas we don’t but have a launch date for the controller, the timing is somewhat odd contemplating that it may have come alongside the PlayStation 5 Slim revision final 12 months.
