One of the most critically acclaimed games on Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, contains an incredible open world you can sink hours into. But how much gameplay could you get through with an accumulated 10kW of power?
Well, the Nintendo Switch can hold a full charge for up to nine hours; but for Breath of the Wild, it may be limited to five and a half hours due to the additional processing power the game requires. Provided you can get a full charge from a regular Nintendo Switch AC charger, which uses around 39W, you could play this gaming masterpiece for over 470 hours.
So, whether you’re looking to explore every nook and cranny of Hyrule or want to playthrough the game seven times, the power the Eiffel Tower lights consume would be more than enough.
After converting the amps and volts displayed on an official Nintendo Switch charger into watts, this number was multiplied by three hours to get the total number of watts it’d take to get a full charge. To get the number of hours you could play the game for, we divided 10,000W by the 117W needed to charge the Switch and multiplied it by 5.5 (the number of hours it can be played on a full charge).
Finally, based on the assumption that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would take around 60 hours to play through, we divided the total amount of hours by 60 to get the number of playthroughs.
Wattage conversion: 2.6 Amps x 15V = 39 watts.
Full charge: 39W x 3 hours = 117 watts
Hours played: 10,000W ÷ 117W x 5.5 hours = 470.08 hours
Playthroughs: 470 hours ÷ 60 hours = 7.83 playthroughs
