PS5 DualSense battery that lasts about 3 to 4 hours longer than DS4s; Triggers behave differently – Rumor
The PS5 DualSense battery is said to last about 3 to 4 hours longer than that of the DualShock 4 controller.
Recently, Reddit user ‘Viper_on_fire’ posted a video of the upcoming DualSense PS5 controller briefly. The video was removed shortly after (we recorded it a working link to the video anyway, but now another Reddit user claims to have received some interesting additional details about the controller, including battery life, comfort, the adaptive triggers and more.
While great, Sony’s PS4 DualShock 4 controller isn’t known for its battery life. Many PS4 owners last about 5 to 6 hours on a single charge and use an additional DualShock 4 or switched to third-party alternatives. However, if the freshly surfaced details about the DualSense are correct, Sony’s upcoming PS5 controller will last considerably longer than the current controller.
In addition, the poster writes that the DualSense is much more comfortable and less bulky than the original PS4 controller. Another interesting detail is the behavior of the adaptive triggers on the DualSense, which would work differently from each other.
We’ve included the text of the Reddit post below:
It is from u / viper_on_fire, the person who owned the dualsense and placed it in this subreddit, but then deleted it.
They tried the controller and he told me how he felt about it
The buttons: The D-pad and the main buttons feel similar to the dualshock 4 with no overall differences. However, the touchpad feels more responsive and clicky when it tried.
The triggers are interesting, the L1 and R1 don’t click, they push down while they are triggers, however the L2 and R2 felt harder to push down than usual even without the voltage points being activated.
Battery life: They noted that on average it was about 3 to 4 hours more than the dualshock 4
The comfort of it: They noted that it is much more comfortable than the dualshock 4 and generally less bulky, they even noted that it was more comfortable than the Xbox one controller in their eyes.
Haptic feedback and the microphone: They told me they didn’t get a chance to play with those features, but they told me they would try later and inform me.
Other: The Lightstrip is much weaker than the light bar of the dualshock 4 They also noted that PSVR does not support this controller because it has no light bar.
As with all unconfirmed leaks and rumors, you should take the information with a good pinch of salt for now.
The PS5 and the DualSense controller will be released later this year.
