    I don't know if a thread like this already exist on here, at least I can't find one. I would like to make a list on all the different flash carts on DS Lite about their power comsumption to see which card last the longest playing time.

    My R4 only last for 4 hours with screen brightness setting at 2 with mild volume turned on.

    I also got myself a DSTT but havn't had the chance to test it out, but notice it last longer than the R4 (with the same setting).

    I would like to about other flash carts, especially the Edge and Acekard 2/2.1, please give me your opinions, thanks!

    It depends what you're doing I think, because I found that with the original Metroid Prime Hunters card, it consumed energy nearly twice as fast as with Animal Crossing: Wild World.

    As for flash carts, I would assume they're very similar... as it's mainly the DS, not the card.
