Nintendo's new, slightly improved switch console has greatly improved battery life compared to the original model. If you've been thinking about upgrading to this version or buying your first switch, Amazon's store may appeal to you.

The original switch console released in 2017 can be between 2.5 and 6.5 hours, depending on the game you have playing. This new model almost doubles the base life per charge, up to 4.5 hours. And if you play something that doesn't tax the Switch hardware specifically, it can take up to 9.5 hours.
