    like the topic says, i am just wondering what is the battery life using a slot 1 flashcart instead of a slot 2 one..... i know that using a slot 2 would decrease battery life by half.... just wondering what happen if i use a slot 1 instead...

    I'm using the ds-link which is a slot 1 and I have seen no difference in battery life. Mine lasts I think 8 - 10 hours playing DS roms. I wish it had gba support

    Reports suggest DS-X's battery life is a fair bit worse than G6 Lite's, so a card won't have great life just because it's slot 1.

    And for the longest time people have been saying that when the slot1 carts come out they’ll get about the same battery life as an original DS cart would get. Go’s to show you can’t believe everything you read. [​IMG]

    i acutally think my ds-x uses less power than my superkey/supercard-minisd solution. over the weekend after playing with my ds for a while I put it into hibernation and went to bed. And in the morning the battery was still green and didnt need a recharge ... in the past I remember the DS lite will usually be switched off by the morning with my superkey/supercard-minisd combo.
