    Ok, so my 3-in-1 is great, but it doesnt have a RTC, so gba games that have them always give me an annoying message about "the battery has run dry..."

    so anyways, i was wondering, what is the best/cheapest slot-2 device that is simillar to a 3-in-1, but has a RTC?

    I think the only one that has RTC is the M3 Perfect

    There are patches you know:

    There are several threads with discussion on it around here as well.

    The makers figured for a couple of games (which have patches) it was not worth the PCB space and hassle of batteries the cope with it.

    As far as I know, the only one readily available is the M3 Perfect. Otherwise you'd have to look into buying an old-school NOR-based flash cart second-hand. For instance, the EZ-Flash III and the Flash2Advance Ultra have RTC chips, but you probably won't be able to find them new.

    currently the cheapest one the market with RTC and not a M3 perfect are the elink carts. you can get those one DX. Otherwise if your looking for a gba flash cart with RTC is nearly improbable to get your hands on new like Dan said.

    Ah, so the Elink has an RTC too? Good information, I didn't know that.

    Just patch it with an RTC patch. Sure, the only time that the RTC will function is when the game is actually running, but it's the easiest and cheapest work around.
