    I feel like the battery life is gone.

    I have B9S and Luma which I know uses some extra battery, but it was fully charged (and off) all week but I wonder-traded for like an hour and it went red.

    I feel it used to last longer. Is this normal for CFW+Wifi or should I spend that $15?

    CFW doesn't affect battery power.
    literally has no effect whatsoever.
    (or at least a significant effect.)

    Wifi on the other hand probably has a more noticable effect, but not like it should chop an hour off of your battery life.

    Your battery is probably just old, buy a new one.


    Oh, and you can check the battery's actual percentage now if you open the Rosalina menu.

    If you have a New 3ds then check to make sure in the Luma menu you have the New 3ds cpu setting to off. Set brightness to 1 in the luma menu.

    I know about Rosalina, and yeah I put it on charge right after posting this (it was blinking red after being red for only 2 minutes), and it's already at 37%.

    It also goes from blinking red to blue the moment I plug it in, so I am further convinced I just need a new battery.

    Don't press post more than once my friend.

    Yeah... I'd say get a new battery. Should save you time.
