New Nintendo Switch can save over 40% battery life

New Nintendo Switch can save more than 40% battery life:

New Nintendo Switch can provide extended battery life. I am not talking about Nintendo Switch Lite which offers limited features but can save your $100. Switch Lite also saves battery because it provides less features as compared to Switch.

Early tests revealed that new Switch can provide 5 hours & 31 minutes of battery life while playing a launch game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While running Fire Emblem: Three Houses which is a recent game, it provided a battery life of 2 hours & 30 minutes in portable mode & 45% of the battery was still left.

Also the new Nintendo Switch model’s processor runs cooler, which avoids your device from heating up that much.

Switch Lite lacks in some features as compared to original Switch & one of the biggest drawback is that Switch Lite can allow you to play games in hand held mode & you cannot connect it to TV.

Also screen size of Switch Lite is smaller & it has built-in Joy-Con controllers. It might not support all games because some of Nintendo games require detachable Joy-Con controllers.

The play time of Switch is around 2.5 to 6.5 hours but the new version is able to provide play time of around 4.5 to 9 hours & its play time even beats Switch Lite which has a better play time than the original Switch.
