    It does save some battery when in sleep mode, due to the screen and sound being turned off.
    You'd still be better off saving the game and turning it off. All flashcarts are going to eat more battery due to the microsd being powered and accessed, compared to a regular cart anyway.

    I heard that the CycloDS saves a battery life in Sleep Mode like a regular game.

    I haven't heard that. It does have Real Time Save. Meaning you can save anywhere and turn off your DS.

    CycloDS does, in fact, have a feature to save battery when sleeping. My AK2i, on the other hand, has abysmal battery life when sleeping...
