    So me and my friend just switch to 10.7 with Reinand (my friend), Aureinand (me cuz bottom screen splash) and somehow the 3ds suddenly wasnt able to hold their charge. One time i left the 3ds turn off (not sleep) for over a day and when turned on it was flashing red. Also i notice that my playtime from full charge to red reduce drastically (mh4u). Is this Reinand fault or 10.7? I used Rxtool 9.5 Emunand before the upgrade and it was fine. Any help appreciate, thanks
    Btw, i use quick shutdown homebrew to turn off the 3ds

    That sounds like your battery might just be shot.

    Batteries can break and this just sounds like a broken battery to me.
    I've been using AuReiNAND since she first launched it and I've have not run into a single battery problem. In fact, I just woke up, my 3DS was not on charge the entire night and it's still showing a full battery.

    All i know is that emunand drains more battery than sysnand (because sd card access drains more than nand)

    so it just breaks in like one week time when it was fine like 3 months ago when i bought it? Also i rarely charge it overnight (maybe 3 times max) and the 3ds can cut the charge when the battery full so there's no overcharge here. Again it's lion battery, pls do your research

    Why not try a different battery to find out? There could also be something internally wrong with your 3DS.
    And I know what a lion battery is, but that doesn't mean it can't break. From what you've described, it sounds like a broken battery to me, from my experience with repairing electronics. I could easily be wrong, but I am not there to physically check the battery for any defects, I am only going off what you are describing.
    Edit: All I know is, it's not AuReiNAND that is the issue here.

    No issues with Aureinand 4.2 or system version 10.7 here.

    My N3DS has been unhooked since yesterday morning at 05:30. So as of right now it has been unhooked and powered on with a game loaded, Hyrule Warriors Legends which is a battery hog itself, for almost 30 hours now and my battery indicator is still showing as full.

    So like people are saying it's very possible your battery has just gone bad. It can happen as you don't know how long your system sat on the shelf too.

    Also, who's to say the quick shutdown app you use isn't the culprit as well?

    Just to rule out the battery itself just go ahead and buy a replacement or if you are feeling adventurous fill out a warranty claim and see if Nintendo will send you a new battery. Just don't tell them you are using any CFW or any hax.

    1st, it didnt break, i can still play like 4 or 5 hours (mh4u) but it feels shorter, and it feel like the battery drain while the console is off. 2nd, distributing what? I'm only asking for help cuz i dont know what cause it, the only lead i have is 10.7 upgrade a week ago

    Sorry, my auto correct changed the word "describing" to "disturbing" because reasons.
    And I am providing an answer based off what I am reading. I've had well over 10 years of experience repairing electronics. I've seen these kinds of things happen before on phones, laptops, and even other 3DS's and 90% of the time the battery was bad. The other 10% there was a short in the system itself.

    Well thanks anyway, i know it's not the battery cuz it can still be played for a long time if use continously but somehow cant hold its charge overnight.
    It look like this: Play a whole evening for over 5hours with full charge
    Play 1 hour in day 1, 1 hour day 2, 1 hour day 3 for a total of 3. 2 hours gone while console was off

    Don't bother. They won't listen cause they know better than you even though they don't know what it is either.

    I know the battery but i dont know what cause it to drain. The only thing you guy have been suggesting is bad battery which i already said it's not the battery. I played for 3 hours now and it still show 3 bars. The fact that it drains overtime while turning off is a mystery

    Are you putting it in stand by with wifi on? That can be a massive drain aswell.

    Alright i just turn the system off normally using the power button and also turn off the wifi. Let's see if the battery drains overnight. Played 3 hours, 3 bars left

    Interesting topic to run across. I just setup my N3DS XL with a9lh + AuReiNAND SysNAND 10.7 and I was thinking my battery was draining faster as well.
    I just made the move the move yesterday so I need more time to test, but it does seem like it drained quicker then usual.

    If the system is off, how the hell would it be software related? Sounds to me like your battery calibration is off.
