Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch's battery can last anywhere from 2.5 to six hours on a full charge while in handheld or tabletop mode depending on the game and mode. The Switch's internal 4310mAh battery takes 3 hours to fully recharge, and Nintendo estimated that the Switch would last about 3 hours while playing demanding games like Breath of the Wild.

 

It turns out that Nintendo's estimates were spot-on. YouTuber Arekkz conducted a quick Switch handheld battery life test and concluded that we can play Breath of the Wild for approximately 3 hours, 2 minutes and 52 seconds with a full charge. This is almost three minutes longer than Nintendo's battery life estimates.
