Sony’s $200 DualSense Edge Controller have a Surprisingly Small Battery
Adding extra features clearly left Sony with less room to squeeze a battery inside.
DualSense Edge Controller PS5 is correct to anticipate a high-end piece of equipment, but they probably won’t expect a battery.
That is significantly smaller than the one found in the $70 DualSense controller.
According to VGC(Opens in a new window), the use of a smaller battery than the original DualSense was confirmed during a disassembly of Sony’s new controller by Twitch channel Budds Controllers(Opens in a new window). Furthermore, the change is not slight.
While the DualSense Edge only needs a 1,050mAh battery, the DualSense controller takes a 1,560mAh battery. It appears that Sony had to jam so many components within the controller case that they could not all fit, rather than doing so as a cost-cutting measure.

Sony did inform us that the Edge controller’s running time will be “moderately shorter” than the DualSense, as The Verge(Opens in a new window) revealed last year.
Sony claimed this was because “we’ve added many more capabilities inside the same form factor and ergonomic design.” Now that we know, it implies a lot more pieces.
It’s a shame that such a costly controller doesn’t outlast the battery life of the normal controller, but the USB braided cable included will ensure you can continue playing even if the battery runs out.
