Approximately 4.5 – 9 hours*The battery life will depend on the games you play. For instance, the battery will last approximately 5.5 hours for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Unfortunately, this is not the Switch Pro many are anticipating but rather a refresh of the original Switch. The new model is expected to launch in late August in Japan and early September in Europe. no release date yet for Nintendo however.
I’m definitely down for a the updated Nintendo Switch that has longer battery life!
