Other features include a power indicator and notification indicator at the top of the system which will provide users with various information, such as power status or incoming messages, a micro USB port enabling users to utilize their own USB cable, such as those used for smartphones, for charging or backing up data and lastly an increased length in battery life which can now apparently do up to 6 hours of gameplay.
