    Hi everyone, I have a problem.
    I bought used DSi in perfect condition, but the battery life is very bad, about 2 hours on backlight level 5 with AK2 and DS game.
    Later I bought a battery for replace from DX, but it runs ~2h too.
    Then I bought a battery "DragonPRO 1800mAh" from eBay, but it is identic chinese noname, and runs even less.
    I used amperemeter to measure DSi power consumption and it says that is about 230 mA (backlight 5, AK2i). If battery runs 2h with this consumption, it's real capacity is about ~500mAh. It is 40% less than DSi original battery 850mAh.
    But I can't find any possibility to buy original battery. eBay sells only noname or used, DX too.
    It is possible to buy unused original battery? I live in Russia, thus I need a seller that can ship overseas.
    Sorry for my bad English and thanks for replies.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Did you try the battery rundown with an genuine Nintendo game? It could be the Ak2i sapping power but all noname batteries will not be as good quality as a genuine battery.
