The Steam Deck is one of the best consoles ever made. Playing AAA games in the comfort of your bed or sofa is amazing.
The only big issue the Steam Deck has is its batteries. So I tested how long it lasts from full charge to dead while playing Elden Ring.
Steam Deck with full brightness and normal settings lasts 84 minutes playing Elden Ring. After 30 minutes, the battery drains from 100% to 76%, and after one hour, the battery drains from 100% to 40%. After 1 hour and 21 minutes, the battery drained from 100%-90%
The photo shows my Steam Deck at full battery at 10 am.
Here it is, 84 minutes, and the battery is dead after shutting itself off at 11:24 am.
You are interested in the Steam Deck, and you SHOULD BE! It might be the most important gaming hardware EVER! But, first, look at eBay’s best prices; otherwise, wait years.
Here is the battery after 30 minutes. It drained from 99% to 76%.
Here is the battery life after one hour. It went from 76% to 40% in 30 minutes. Of course, the lower the charge, the quicker the battery drains.
I bought Elden Ring at a crazy 36% off at the amazing game key retailer CD keys, trust me they are legit I’ve bought countless games from them and never had an issue. Take a look at the best deals CD keys has to offer here.
