3 - 5 hours apparently. Quite poor.

Depends on your playing style, also there are 3rd party batteries coming out that hold longer charges.

Having played a lot recently, it's really bad. But like others have said it's easy enough to play with it plugged in. Luckily the charge cable is decently long.

No it really doesnt depend on your playing style...the battery life is abysmal. AT BEST its 3-5 hours....... good luck to those hoping to play DQ online for hours upon hours with this thing. As for the plugged in excuse?....really?....can someone tackle that please?

Pretty poor tbh. Tear down has shown theres plenty of empty space inside. A bigger battery should have been included to compensate for the pads reliance of battery guzzling wifi.
