    If I run DS games through a micro-sd card through a R4 card in my 3DS, does it affect battery life or the processor any more than it should?
    Is it emulation?

    Not really. The DSTWO does affect battery life (mostly noticeable when it's left in sleep mode in 3DS mode as the CPU keeps running), but R4s don't have a built in CPU.
