You can never have enough battery life for any portable device, and the Nintendo Switch Lite is no exception. The console has a battery capacity of 3,570 mAh, which means it should last approximately three to seven hours, depending on what games you are playing. For any journey longer than a few hours, you'll definitely need a portable battery pack as one of the key Nintendo Switch accessories to pair with it. Here are some of the best battery backups for the Nintendo Switch Lite that money can buy.
