whats the best way to make the battery on the ds last longer?
Keep the screen brightness down.
Turn off the backlight
Eject any cartridges you're not using, and turn down the backlight. Speakers probably use more battery than headphones, though using no sound at all will use up the least amount of power.
How long is it from fully charged until the red light on your DS?
on max Bright/ Sound = 2.5-3.5 hours
Low bright/ no sound = 10-12 hours
Yeah, 8 hours on average is what I get on no sound and on lowest brightness. Note my DS is over a year old and bought 2nd hand.
wat about the use of a flash cart?
cuz i know that using flashcarts burn more juice?
They use more juice but only 10-15 minutes difference in power. But that is only for slot-1 cards. I know that running cards from slot-2 will drain the power faster
Also, games like EBA or others that use the touch screen a lot will run out of power faster as well.
If you have a phat DS, Datel sells (or used to sell) a battery expansion pack. I picked one up at Best Buy a couple years back for about $5. It adds a bit more to the DS, but mine runs well past 8 hours on a single charge which includes using a flash cart: Supercard SD and a Supercard DSONE
does it affect the power of the battery when i charge it right after it turns red?
If you play your DS while it's charging it drains the battery like hell.

My new 1800mAh DSL battery came today and luckily it hasn't blown up my DS (yet).
