Leaked Sony DualSense V2 controller has more than twice the battery life

Ro, 11 January 2024

A DualSense V2 controller from Sony just popped up on Best Buy's official Canadian branch with product images and specs. And although the images reveal zero change in the design, the specs show a massive improvement in battery life.

As per the specs listed, the DualSense V2 has 12 hours of autonomy, compared to the 5-hour battery life on the current generation DualSense controllers.

The rest of the feature set remains unchanged - built-in mic, haptic triggers, headphone jack, touchpad, the whole lot. The controller's price is listed as CAD 90, which is around $67 - just as much as the current controller.

It seems like Best Buy jumped the gun, so we may still have more waiting to do before we can actually buy the updated controllers, but it can't be long now.
