This Chart is for the Nintendo Switch LITE Model.  For the Battery Life Chart for the -original- Nintendo Switch, see the link below:

And if you’re looking for the Battery Life Chart for the V2/Red Box Model with the power-efficient chip, see the link below:

This Guide is a very simple idea.  I log Battery Life for all Switch Games, Apps, and Demos that I own.  All of these readings will be based on readings I get from my own Switch from gameplay of these games to ensure accuracy.

Do note that this doesn’t mean these readings are 100% Accurate, but these are the readings I get on -my- Switch.

Do note that these settings are not always absolute with brightness.  When it says “Low/Lower Brightness”, I set it to a brightness that is very close to the bottom, but still visible on-screen.  As such, some darker-looking games may actually have the brightness a little above the Minimum during these tests.  After all, who wants Battery Life for brightness settings where they won’t even be able to see the game when they’re not in a dark room?

*One last thing of note.  These Battery Readings are subject to change.  I do quick, prelim tests for quick updates to the list and do full testing a day or so later.  Most of the readings don’t change much, but it can change.  However, anything that’s been up for more than 2 days or so should be the final testing stats.
