Longer battery life for longer game sessions

DualSense controllers and PlayStation symbols

A new revision to the PS5 DualSense controller appears to have been leaked by the Canadian Best Buy website. The “V2” revision features a much improved 12-hour battery life.

A user on the Resetera forums has spotted a new DualSense revision listed on the Canadian Best Buy website. Product revisions are nothing new but what makes this DualSense revision astounding is the apparent increase in battery life to 12 hours.

When the PS5 first launched, users were reporting anywhere between 4 – 5 hours of battery life on a full charge. But according to a listing on the Best Buy website, this new V2 DualSense will have an “exceptional” 12-hour battery life on a full charge, which is ideal for long gaming sessions.

The listing has now been taken down but Resetera user ezidro3 saved the info from the website.

  • Compatible with the PlayStation 5
  • Wireless connectivity ensures you will never get tangled up in wires while gaming
  • Iconic comfortable design fits naturally in your hands
  • Haptic feedback replaces the traditional rumble motors for more realistic gameplay
  • Dynamic adaptive triggers let you experience different levels of force and tension as you interact with your game
  • Built-in microphone lets you engage with fellow gamers in online play
  • Headset jack lets you plug in your favourite headset, so you can tune in to your game audio easily
  • Dual Sense charging station (included) offers easy click-in charging
  • Exceptional 12-hour battery life, on a full charge, supports long gaming sessions

What is also interesting about this listing is that it appears to state that a DualSense Charging Station is included. Whether this is part of a Best Buy bundle or SOny is selling the new DualSense with a Charging Station is unclear.

Other information gleaned from the Best Buy listing also seems to state that the new DualSense controller revision is 80 grams lighter than the previous DualSense model. The Previous model weighed 360 grams while the new revision is listed as weighing only 280 grams.
