You can play a small title, like RiME, for 5 hours or more. Playing the console’s most exciting games brings that battery life estimate down by half. Nintendo Switch lasts for 3 hours when you play more demanding games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey. Play Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2, Arms or Fortnite Battle Royale online and you can expect less battery life than that.
Anker PowerCore+26800 PD
The Anker PowerCore+26800 PD is a smartphone charger that outputs enough power to charge your Nintendo Switch.
This updated Anker PowerCore+ has higher voltage limits than the model it replaces and a 26800 mAh battery inside. Two full-size USB ports let you charge a smartphone or tablet quickly. It's the built-in USB Type-C port that has the voltage the Nintendo Switch requires for charging and gaming. The battery charges the console in just 4 hours.
There is just one downside to using the Anker PowerCore+26800 PD to keep your Nintendo Switch charged. You must keep the 1-pound battery in your lap as you game. Aside from that, it's definitely worth the $99.99 it costs from Amazon.
