PlayStation Vita will offer external battery option

Fly from NY to San Fran with no hassle.

PlayStation Vita has 3 to 5 hours of battery life when fully charged. For some, that’s just not enough. Luckily, Sony is preparing an external battery that will extend the life of your handheld.

“We just announced the peripherals for PS Vita, as well,” Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuehi Yoshida told IGN. And one of the peripherals is the external battery that extends the battery life on PS Vita, that you can connect to PS Vita.

“So if you’re flying from New York to San Francisco, or vice-versa, you’ll have no concerns if you have an additional, external battery.”

PlayStation Vita will launch in Japan on December 17.
