    So how long can you go?
    Started my second game.
    Just for fun I let it run dry, as long as it would stay on.

    Got 2 hours 23 minutes. No flight mode, but using headphones instead of Switch speakers and around one third of an screen brightness.

    After a bit of loading it was pleasant to see no data was lost, I was able to continue just where I left off.

    For anyone interested:
    I went for small pangaea, Saladin, fast speed this time as my first game on normal speed took 30 hours.. Maybe that will infect the battery life a bit? As its not as intensive? Dunno.

    Edit: oh yeah, forgot to mention. The first time the console noticed me about battery life was already at 1 hour 56 minutes so pretty early. But the game kept on going.

    Hey! Its my PB speedrun time of this game. :D

    Truth to be told it was my first civ 6 game ever, so I spend time to see civilopedia and trying to figure out the controls. :D And thanks to your advice, I micro less this time.

    I also have the second battery test ready right from the oven. :D
    This time volume through Switch itself. At 33%.

    Quite different results actually. I got plenty of game time more, 2hours 53 minutes. I am pretty sure the first time I got my brightness higher, as I remember... I thought I used 33% on that too, but now the game looked much dimmer at same lighting levels of my house. Or my headphones suck the battery dry. That would be nasty. The fist warning (15%) came around 2h 15min, the second at 2h 42min.
    Now I have to test this once more to be sure. I wonder what things come in effect here for such a huge difference.
