I feel like the battery life is gone.

I have B9S and Luma which I know uses some extra battery, but it was fully charged (and off) all week but I wonder-traded for like an hour and it went red.

I feel it used to last longer. Is this normal for CFW+Wifi or should I spend that $15?

CFW doesn't affect battery power.
literally has no effect whatsoever.
(or at least a significant effect.)

Wifi on the other hand probably has a more noticable effect, but not like it should chop an hour off of your battery life.

Your battery is probably just old, buy a new one.


Oh, and you can check the battery's actual percentage now if you open the Rosalina menu.

If you have a New 3ds then check to make sure in the Luma menu you have the New 3ds cpu setting to off. Set brightness to 1 in the luma menu.

I know about Rosalina, and yeah I put it on charge right after posting this (it was blinking red after being red for only 2 minutes), and it's already at 37%.

It also goes from blinking red to blue the moment I plug it in, so I am further convinced I just need a new battery.

Don't press post more than once my friend.

Yeah... I'd say get a new battery. Should save you time.
