- Based on a Twitter user claiming to have tested it, the PS5's DualSense controller could have 50% more battery capacity than the current DualShock 4
- The Twitter user states that DualSense has a 1560mA battery capacity compared to DualShock 4s 1000mA
- Due to features such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, however, these can negate the extra battery capacity even if it includes a larger battery
A Twitter user claiming to work for an accessory company claims that the DualSense controller for PlayStation 5 can contain 50% more battery capacity than the current generation DualShock 4.
According to the Video Games Chronicle, Twitter user @ Galaxyrain666 claimed that he was able to test the DualSense controller and said the battery capacity is 1
At launch, the DualShock 4 had a smaller 800mA battery.
The DualSense controller has already been announced to include haptic feedback, a built-in microphone and adaptive triggers. These can potentially negate the extra battery capacity even if it includes a larger battery.
Earlier this month, a Reddit user who shared evidence of having a DualSense controller claimed that the pad lasted "3 to 4 hours" longer than DualShock 4.  Officially, PlayStation itself did not provide any battery numbers for the DualSense controller beyond saying that it has taken "thoughtful consideration of ways to maintain a strong battery life."
When Sony unveiled the DualSense controller for the PlayStation 5 in April, the company called it "a radical departure" from its previous DualShock controllers.
Aside from haptic feedback, adaptive triggers and a built-in microphone, the two-tone design of the DualSense controller includes updates to the hand-held triggers, grips and light bar that are all found in the DualShock controllers.
Sony recently released new images for the PS5 controller and accessories, showing DualSense, PS5 headsets, camera and remote control from several angles.
The company also released more details about PlayStation 5's compatibility with older console accessories. It confirmed that PS4 controllers will not work with PS5 games. However, DualShock 4 will work with PS4 games via backward compatibility.
Video Games Chronicle notes that Sony stated that special equipment, such as officially licensed racing wheels, arcade sticks and flying sticks, will work with PS5 games.
PlayStation 5 is slated for a holiday release in 2020, although Sony has not yet released a final date for the launch of the next generation console. Just this week, it has been reported that the rival console, the Xbox Series X from Microsoft, will be released during the first week of November.
