The Steam Deck battery life isn't great because it packs a lot of power in a small device, and power-hungry games drain the battery fast.

It's all those high-performance components and that gorgeous screen that gobble up energy, making it hard for the battery to keep up.

I've been using the Steam Deck for a few months, and playing graphically intense games definitely drains the battery quicker than simpler indie titles.
