Has anyone already bought this (or a similar one) 2000mAh battery for DS Lite?

I know it's a chinese, shoddy and low-quality item, but even if the value is way too inflated, will it last (at least) a little longer than my original, 10+ year old battery?
Or is it still better to buy an original, more expensive, 1000mAh one?

Basically mine lasts about 3 hours using a DS flashcart and about 2 hours with GBA flashcart launched via DS YSMenu (gba game with custom frame).

I would like to hear various opinions, but particularly from those who have already acquired this or similar item; Is it possible that the value declared on the battery is totally invented, or does it have a basis of truth anyway?

P.S. This is what a reddit user writes : "I ended up opening it up..... good grief! It's definitely an old battery from some other device, which they've put inside a little plastic cover to look like a DS battery..."

The question is whether what he reports concerns all the same models that can be purchased online, which I personally believe practically certain.

Thank you.

So, in your opinion, it is not actually a 2000mAh battery (it does not last noticeably longer than a normal one), but neither it is a battery that has already been used and refurbished like new, as many claim (in this case it should last little or nothing)...what do you think about it? :unsure:

According to the "Age" of it now,I am pretty sure,it was a new (also optical) Battery.
But who knows....
What I can say for sure,it is still "usable" and works.

Of course,you can also get an used DS Lite that has maybe only a "few" Hours on the Battery.:)

Experiences (I use "chinese" Battery Packs for the 3DS XL/New 3DS XL/DSi/DS Lite/GameBoy Advanced/Wii U Pad) with 3rd Party/Chinese Batteries tells me, if they had described "more mAh" on the Label,it does not mean automatically it has more Durability.:)

Only original Batteries (for the Wii Motion Controlller for Example,there exists a "stronger" Nintendo Rechargeable Battery Pack,but I never have seen it.....) guarantee you that...maybe.:D

none of these batteries are 2000mah, they physically couldn't be, they're all in the 800-1000 range.

judging from some mobile router/cellphone batteries (i.e. BV-6a for nokia handhelds) you COULD possibly cram 1200, 1500mAh into these, but definitely no 2k, full ack.

i'm be tempted to call BS upon 2000mAh

    http://harmful.cat-v.org/software/OO_programming/ <- OOP allows a generic build to scale approach to solve problems. And compatibility. In my experience an API/Shared Libraries by being encapsulated, is less likely to get optimized/destroyed by the compiler, specifically in embedded platforms.

    No doubt it will be slower, but if you can and have the resources to hand-optimize away the code
    , do it.

    Also allows to separate pieces in components: Init, update, destroy, which enables the whole program to be inheritable. If you're creating a first person shooter, and want to add multiplayer, you will have to use OOP regardless.

    I remember when you had to write your code exactly or things would just break instantly lol 48K was all you had on an Apple IIe and that was with added RAM ai think... Forgot so much over the years lol

    yeah, psi gets it. Imagine building a 3D game and the compiler/linker breaks your code because you didn't order the data in a certain way

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Yeah I dimly recall if your have the compiler set to optimize too agresively things can get crazy

    Like setting it really high can work but sometimes requires rewrite of code and that's if the error spat out makes any sense
