    How Long Does the Battery Charge Last?


    As with most lithium-ion batteries, the console battery life will gradually decrease over time. After about 800 charge cycles, the console battery life will decrease to about 80% compared to the battery on a new console. This is normal and does not represent an issue with the console or with the battery.


    • The Nintendo Switch console takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge when the console is powered off or in sleep mode. Charging time will be longer if the console is in use.
    • Once fully charged, the battery duration for the console varies depending on model and on the software application and functions being used.
