    Playing BOTW with full brightness and low volume I can squeeze 1.45hrs out of my switch. Is this normal?

    Yes, also, lower brightness gets you more battery time, and I don't think volume affects it

    Yeah I know that lower brightness would give me m lore, was just wondering if my current settings are normal battery usage, Wi-Fi off too.

    Pretty sure I've gotten about 3 hours of BOTW in handheld mode at full brightness. Actually scratch that, I'm realizing that I've never even turned my Switch up to its true full brightness, I've just kept it at the default 80% or so brightness that it was on immediately, and that seems super bright as it is.
