    Just a quick question. I'm waiting for my G6DS Real 8Gb to get here and I'm getting ready to go on a trip. I just want to know, how much will the G6DS lower my DS Lite's battery time/life?

    It will not affect the battery life at all, at least not that Ive noticed, I have a G6 Real 16Gb.

    Ok, sounds good. I assume since you have the bigger one, mine would probably take less to use, but you don't notice a difference anyway, so I won't worry about it. Thanks!

    My DS-X drained the battery, not MUCH, but above a regular cart.
    I wanted to get a G6, but I ended up getting a Cyclo Evo.

    Did they fix the Download play to get a 100% compatibility?

    slot 1 take about 7% more power than real carts, so you might a less than 20 minutes difference from original games. You will notice a bigger difference with the brightness setting than with slot 1 flashcarts.

    I've heard that using sleep mode with a flash cart actually uses MORE power than it does normally.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes it does, especially with SLOT 2 cards, such as the G6 Lite.
