The DualSense controller for the PS5 is becoming less and less mysterious by the day.

While we still have no idea about the price of it or when we'll actually have it in our hands, we do know more and more about how it should feel and work.

Well, the latest bit of information comes via a Twitter user who posted a comment and a video on the site about the controller.

So, this is how long the DualSense battery could last.

How long will the DualSense battery last?

Images of the DualSense controller surfaced on Twitter, allegedly posted by an employee for a controller accessory manufacturer, which detailed the PS5 controller's battery size.

According to the leaker, the DualSense has a battery capacity of 1560mA. This is a significant upgrade on the current DualShock 4 controller, which had a capacity of 1000mA or 800mA depending on the version.

Given that the DualShock 4 lasts between four and eight hours depending on your settings, we could be seeing a large boost to the charge of the DualSense.

The DualSense is said to last between three and four hours more than that, meaning it could last anywhere between seven and fifteen hours potentially.

That means that a single charge of the DualSense controller could last up to 10% as long as the standard open-world game. Although, that maths might change with fewer loading screens.

How big is the Dualsense?

According to a video put out by Geoff Keighley, the DualSense will be a little bigger and a little heavier than the DualShock 4.

The measurements of the DualShock 4 are 162 mm × 52 mm × 98 mm. The weight of the controller is incredibly light at only 210g.

While we don't have the specific measurements or weight for the DualSense, it's meant to still be quite light, and it doesn't look that much bigger than the DualShock 4 either.
