DualSense Battery 50% Larger than DualShock 4, But There’s a Catch

A recent leaked image revealed that Sony’s DualSense controller for the PS5 will feature s 1560mAh battery. But there was something we noticed on the back of the controller that doesn’t add up.

I recently swapped out a dead battery and noticed on the PS4’s Dualshock that it featured a 1000mAh battery

This image shows what battery the PS5’s DualSense controller has inside it.

It clearly states a 1560mAh batter with a 4.2 voltage. But look what is printed on the back of the controller.

Can’t see it? Here’s a closer look…

The back states 1500mA, which is a lower estimate of the battery, but the voltage is drastically different? Maybe this is due to an early batch with temporary batteries? Or it could be old sample text for the backs of the controllers. It is hard to say.

Yes the controller features 50% more milliamps but the voltage is higher.

This may mean the battery will last longer, but the DualSense has more tech inside which may end up leaving you with the normal 5~ hours or so of continuous gaming you are used to.

Still no announcement of a PS5 release, but we carry on waiting.
