    So I just got me an EZ-Flash IV for my GBM, and have it all set up and working, but I have a question regarding the battery. From the research I have done, it is suggested to charge it for 6-8 hours in a Gameboy/DS that's powered on and plugged in, while at the same time, it might not even have a rechargeable battery.

    What should I do? How do I know if it's rechargeable or not, besides the packaging? Is there any good way to open up the case without breaking it? It already is loose on one corner. And if it's not rechargeable, how long does the battery last before I need to replace it?

    Thanks.

    Solder a new battery or use the tape method to replace the battery.

    I think you can also tell by the color of the battery, well the plastic part on the battery... I think they are mostly non rechargable

    ...Mbmax will probably know how to tell.

    yellow in general means it is a non-rechargeable battery.

    orange means it is a rechargable battery (there are 3 colors that define rechargeable by element type).


    I already said they weren't.

    See the section under maintaince for replacing the battery. If you need to learn how to solder, google how to do it then buy some of the things you need at a raidoshack for practice. It should cost about under 20 bucks for the tools and things you would need if you don't already have it.
