Nintendo Switch Battery Life Chart

*Note to Mobile Phone Users.  Please use Landscape Viewing Mode to see full table*

This is a very simple idea.  I will compile a list of all Nintendo Switch games I have played/reviewed and list all of the Battery Life times I’ve recorded for each game, since it varies so much from game to game.  This is so users curious about Battery Life can reference this list for that information.

**One final thing to note.  The Low Brightness settings are not always bare minimum.  Some games are too dark to see properly when at lowest brightness, so in the case of some games, like Resident Evil Revelations and Skyrim, the setting I used was almost down to the lowest, but just bright enough to make out environments. **

Last Update: February 20, 2018

 

*Note that this will be from games I have personally played/tested.  I don’t have PR Relations with every publisher in the world, so some games are likely to not be included here for that reason.

This table’s format, to save space, has been shortened.  Here is the explanation of the format guide:

Bright = Screen Brightness
Air = Airplane Mode

So Max Bright/Wi-Fi means you have the brightness all the way up and the Wi-Fi turned on.
