    My eyes immediately zoomed in on all the nintendo stuff on the second video. What a collection...
    Anywho, the first video was really entertaining to watch XD I felt sad at how fast the regular 3ds lasted though... but any who, its nice to see how well the xl battery life lasts! Thisll stop all the haters from complaining that its not really an increased battery life at all...
    EDIT: I'd Like to know what battery extender he is using on that 3ds, fifteen hours straight sounds amazing..

    That's not too bad considering it has a bigger screen and it out lasted the vita. I can deal with that considering I never play with my 3ds on max anyways.

    Good, but I likely worse with 3D turned on, and if you got a 3DS, I'd like to think you got it to use 3D.
    And I think the battery thing people may be on about is the Nyko Circle pad pro? Apparently triples battery life. Due out in october, but I havent noticed nyko stuff for 3DS available in UK weirdly, but I'll gladly import I think.

    Sadly the Vita test is unfair since bluetooth is on and the others have no BT.

    The 3DS XL lasts about 1 hour more than the regular even with the far bigger screens. I'm impressed actually.

    The main selling point of the XL is that big screen.

    so the xl battery is not that much improvement from the original 3ds is it? only by a hour :S i wonder how long the 3ds xl can keep it's charge after fully charging it? my dsi xl can stay charged for weeks of not using it, it has a very good battery.

    edit: the second video was quite impressive, the 3DS with battery pack outlived all the handhelds on the table XD the original gameboy lasted just as long because it uses AA batteries not like the more recent batteries that don't a charge well, and as expected the DSI xl battery lasted quite a while too, the batteries are quite good on the dsi xl's

    The 3DS XL can last about 8 hours on average playing DS games, which is about 2 hours longer than the original.

    Not going to lie, watch the first one a few times.

    I wonder if people will make a battery extender for even the XL? :lol:

    Sorry for going a little off-topic but..

    If there's one battery extender I really need to get my hands on it's this:

    It's a small easily detachable battery extender that doubles the battery life. It charges with the same cable and even comes in matching colors.
    The battery pack is cheap too, to bad I haven't found a store that ships the Nitho branded one to Sweden. :(
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Though I came across this ebay listing, it's not the same brand but it supposedly doubles the battery too, might be worth a shot actually.
    http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a72b6fb02

    I'll order one and create a thread if it's any good.

    The power pak seems to last longer than the 3DSiXL.
    I wonder how long the 3DSiXL can last with a power pak...

    I'd like to hope that with the 3ds running about 15 hours on that power pak, the 3dsxl may run anywhere from 18-20 hours on a powerpak. But of course, it depends on what brand of powerpak. Im hoping nyko will announce that cpp/battery extender for the xl as well.

    I wouldn't mind a battery extender case without the cpp from them.

    hopefully it would be better.
    I have DSi & XL, I never touch my dsi after purchasing XL due bigger screen (well ofcourse), and also yes...it last longer than dsi.

    though anyone might not notice, but I found XL version have better (way too much better) quality.
    better package, sound, battery, and case which is not look so damn cheapo. probably because the glossy paint on front case, and another different color for back case.

    I'll wait for another years or probably until there's a flashcart can play 3ds roms ( I might never buy it :D )
