    Is it normal that my EZ flash IV drains my battery? I have 2 GBA SP, a GBA micro and a GBA classic, and if I use the flashcart the battery drains a lot faster. Also the battery indicator flickers to red all the time.

    Yes that's normal. I also have this with my China GB flashcard.

    Faster? Yes. A lot faster... that would not be in line with what I measured a while back when I was comparing various flash carts, official carts and the like. I don't think the newer kernels (I would probably have been on the old ones) would have changed things here.

    The SP and micro might be older batteries and the bit more draw from the EZ4 vs stock carts and because the way the batteries work that would be more than the fractional amount (more draw, quicker drop and not necessarily linear.
