    I feel like my battery drains a bit too fast. I have a DSi so i can't have a GBA expansion. Any idea at what's going on? It lasts about 5~ hours before it goes red

    The only variable is the microSDHC your using. People note that the larger capacity you have the shorter on average your battery life is. This is common across all microSDHC flashcarts.

    My wireless was on. Would that have affected anything?

    I found on the internet that ....

    Nintendo DSi: The lowest brightness (9-14 hrs), low brightness (8-12 hours), medium brightness (6-9 hours), high brightness (4-6 hours), highest brightness(3-4 hours)

    Nintendo DS Lite: The lowest brightness (15-19 hrs), low brightness (10-15 hours), high brightness (7-11 hours), highest brightness(5-8 hours)

    As for the DS XL. I'm pretty sure the battery has been modified to outlast the previous gens

    Cool. Thanks guys [​IMG]

    And I have a 4Gb San Disk MicroSD. That wouldn't affect how fast it drains right?

    Makes sense.
    After all, flashcarts do more work when reading/saving, as well as patching on-the-fly for loading.
