    This is a work in progress list of all games with how fast the battery goes down per minute and total play time you can get on a full battery both showing what they would be at max, medium, and minimum brightness levels through out. The spreadsheet of this data can be found here. You may submit data you would like to add to the spreadsheet here. You can also see what has been submitted to the google form to be added but may not have been added to the spreadsheet yet on the 3rd sheet in the battery life spread sheet. Do keep in mind that the list of games still needs to be filled out as this spreadsheet was just recently made, I apologize for this and will begin filling it out when I have time available.

    UPDATE: It seems so far that the trend of data is showing that usually going from minimum to maximum brightness raises battery consumption rate by 0.10% per minute. With this info we may now aproximate the life of all brightness levels once we know how long it lasts on one of them. Your contribution means even more now.

    To do
    - Add all currently available games to the list
    - Figure out how brightness effects battery life so we can figure out what all three for a game are after getting the values for one brightness level
    - And of course get all battery usage statistics for all games available

    This is a thread both posted to here and and reddit to spur more support to help fill this data sheet out, said reddit side of this thread can be found here.

    But if someone says "Nothing bad happened here," you KNOW something bad happened there!

    Google docs might be a good place, although since you're not dealing with very complicated formulas and such, I'd say that eventually you maybe should consider adding it as an entry to a Wiki, such as the Nintendo Wiki http://nintendo.wikia.com/wiki/Nintendo_Switch

    But i think by lowering the screen luminosity and turning off wifi you might suck a bit more out of it

    I get mine tomorow but i'm wondering more how much time it need to charge ^^

    From what I've read, Zelda is 3h5m at minimum brightness, 2h48m at default brightness, all with airplane mode on.
    And this is version 1.0.0.

    How do I calculate the consumption rate per minute? I would like to post the stats for Super Bomberman R when I get the chance to.

    I looked at how many minuets where in the time that we got for each game so like with Disgaea 5 Complete on minimum brightness we got 8 hours, there are 60 minuets in an hour so I did 8 x 60 and got 480, then I divided 100(battery life) by the time we got out of it being 480 and got 0.208333333333 which I rounded to 0.21% per minuet.

    Haven't done any specific research but when playing on the Switch console itself I turn down the brightness to the minimum to make it last a bit longer. So far, I've not run out of battery but then again it wasn't for long hours.
