Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Lasts 40 Hours On A Single Charge

The Wii U Pro Controller had a fair few issues – the analog sticks placement, maybe, as well as the general build quality not exactly inspiring confidence – but the one thing that it got absolutely right was the battery life. The Wii U Pro’s prowess in this area was legendary, with the controller going for over 80 hours on a single charge.

It looks like the successor to the controller, the Switch Pro controller, keeps its predecessor’s stamina an penchant for going on forever- according to information gleaned from the back of the packaging for the Switch Pro, the controller will go 40 hours on a single charge. Considering how much more tech the witch Pro packs – it has HD Rumble, highly enhanced motion sensors, and NFC tech – this is seriously impressive. Switch Pro charges over USB, and a cable is included with the controller.

In contrast, the DualShock 4 controller is rated for a maximum of 7 hours of battery life, while the Xbox One controller goes on for 30 hours.
