Does Sky3DS consume more battery life than retail cartridges?

    Good question but I never hear any complaints about it, so it's affect on the battery must be minimal.

    I remember people talking about the GW card drawing battery and since it uses similar technology as the sky3ds I would say slightly.

    From my own personal tests GW seems to draw approx 5% draw on the battery which is nothing

    if you are concerned, do a test for us :)
    leave a game running via sky until the 3ds dies, and then ideally the same game via retail cart
