A New PS5 DualSense Controller V2 Has Leaked Online With Huge Battery Life

The new model addresses one of the biggest complaints with the current DualSense controllers.

Story Highlights

  • A new PS5 V2 DualSense Controller has leaked online via a Best Buy listing. It features a huge battery life.
  • The battery life has been touted to last as long as 12 hours on a full charge. It supports long gaming sessions. 
  • The pricing of the new controller variant is the same as the current model, costing 89.99 Canadian dollars.

Sony had a huge presence at the recent CES 2024 event, but it appears to have hidden some of its upcoming arrivals. A listing on Best Buy Canada has allegedly leaked a new DualSense V2 controller that might be coming soon. It is unclear why the upgraded variant in the DualSense lineup was not announced at the event, but it will come with a whole lot of improvements that fans have yearned for a long time.

At first glance, the new PS5 V2 DualSense model resembles the current lineup completely, making it difficult to recognize any changes unless carefully observed. Besides the name, the model also tackles the dreaded battery life issue that has lingered in these power-hungry controllers for a long time. A generic DualSense can give you a battery life lasting from 4 to 12 hours, with most sessions requiring a charge somewhere around six hours.

Take the gaming action into your own hands when you play with the PlayStation 5 V2 DualSense wireless controller. With dynamic triggers, a built-in microphone and so much more, this gaming controller offers a truly immersive experience. The iconic comfortable design lets you play for hours and hours,” reads the description on the page.

However, the upgraded variant can give a charge of up to 12 hours, as touted on the leaked page. The size difference for the controller is also listed. It is larger than current DualSense controllers while retaining the same 280g weight. The V2 variant also possibly improves upon the built-in microphone and other similar features. The controller costs the same as the current Dualsense model, costing 89.99 Canadian dollars on the listing for now.

DualSense is a perfect example of current controllers’ innate capabilities. One was recently used to drive a new Honda car onstage at the CES 2024 event. A study also found that DualSense Edge users on the PS5 play games for longer periods. Now Sony wants to push further ahead with their new model that is allegedly coming soon. The extra battery life will make it even more preferable among PS users and solve the biggest current dilemma.
