    Some one was talking about this the other day but I swear my battery life is way shorter when using the R4.
    Just running games no wifi or cheats.

    nope, we had this discussion before, normally flash cards drain

    more battery because of the fact they use a pass me to access

    the slot 2, but this is not the case with slot 1, which probably do

    drain a slightly larger amount of battery but not enough to worry

    about, i just have my brightness on the second from lowest setting

    and it last forever. [​IMG]

    yes but only a bit, a ds cart is basically an sd card,

    Nintendo have said that themselves, so there is only a

    slight difference between reading a ds cart and an sd card.
