    as the title says, i have the weird impression that my battery lasts shorter than before.
    today, a full charge lasts about 2hours. is that normal?

    It's not long at all. I don't even think mine makes it that long. I'd recommend getting the extended battery from Nintendo's website.

    I just keep the charger close so I can plug it in when necessary. But yeah 2 hours is about right, dual shock 4s last about the same. That's why I prefer they just let me use my own batteries now because in Xbox One with my rechargeable batteries I get about 50 hours.

    Try turning the brightness to the lowest setting and the powersave on. :)

    Also $40 for a high capacity battery (Claims at least 8 hours?) O_O

    Under what circumstances do they make these claims? Highest brightness setting with battery saver off? Then Sure make that claim but not if is true. :glare:

    This is how I've been doing it. I will ONLY pay for a replacement once the battery is about dead.
