You can play many games with a fully charged battery. If you leave the Centaur on continuously, you can play with it for at least 20 hours.

The bottom was purposefully left open to show the innovative design, to be more environmentally friendly by using less plastic, and to reduce the weight which also helps to reduce its carbon footprint.
