The Switch battery life was just announced to be between 2.5 to 6.5 hours depending on the intensity of the game. The switch can be charged with a USB charger much like the Wii U gamepad for extra energy on the go.  The Switch will feature a Captive touch screen as well as the option to connect up to 8 Switch consoles at once. This will almost guarantee some interesting multiplayer experiences.

Did the battery life surprise you,  and how do you feel about the captive screen?
