    Hey everyone, got a question:

    I was wondering if anyone know the battery life of the original DS when playing a game? I think it's around 4-6 hours but I wanted to check. Also, I was wondering if anyone knew any ways to increase battery life... if anyone knows of any aftermarket batterys to increase life, or any portable charging solutions? I'm going on a trip in a little while (airplanes/airports/trains... etc) and probably wont be around any chargers and was wondering if anyone knows any ways to get around this? Thanks for your time!

    you could buy replacement batteries, charge them, take it out of the ds, put a new one in, charge that one, and so on. SO when you run out of one battery, you can open your ds, and put a fully charged one [​IMG]

    I suppose that is probably the easiest way, but I was wondering if anyone else knew of any other ways?

    To conserve battery power, play with no sound and the light off. That should provide maximum battery life. I think there is a USB charger available. If you have a laptop to plug it into this is also a good solution.

    I have been planning on buying this on:
    Emergency Charger from Lik-Sang.

    Edit:Sorry, I didn't notice you were talking about the DS Fat.
    Well then I guess you need this one.

    Get a battery pack (double the battery life) @£10.00

    then only play GBA games at low volume (double the battery life again).
