    Just a simple question here. Im currently using a superkey in my DSL with a EZ4L and on the highest brightness setting am getting about 3 hours battery life or something. Would flashing it have any influence on battery life and if so is it much?

    Thanks.

    Has anyone actually used this battery? Any reviews?
    I would love to have an extended battery like this. Seems like it wouldn't fit.

    I just received this battery in the mail this morning... It's identical to the 1000 mAh original DS lite battery. I've installed it and charged it up, but only played for a bit... I'll letcha know how long it lasts.

    Hmmm... This should go in a FAQ but, yes, keeping the DS card slot free of any passkey cards or games will give you an extra 1-2 hours of battery power. The main power hog seems to be the flashcarts themselves.

    I was looking around for a bigger third party battery too so, let me know how it goes! The current DSL battery gives me an extra 3 hours or so of battery life than my original at the second lowest brightness so, this should give another 6-9 hours for me if it's good [​IMG]

    I don't see why you need to play at the highest brightness, though. You play under the sun or something? [​IMG]

    Well, it didn't blow up, but I think something is wrong with it or it's bogus. The first time I charged up the 1600mAH battery it only charged for about an hour and a half - it didn't really worry me cause I assumed it already had a partial charge. I played my DSL for maybe 4 hours (off and on) and red light... The DSL shut down about 30 minutes later while playing... I charged the battery and again it only charged for about an hour and a half... I unpluged it and repluged it and it stopped charging after a minute, so it must be full?

    Anyhow, you're not supposed to get optimal use of a lion battery till you charge/discharge it 3 or so times, but it shouldn't be this bad. I iether have a defective one or it's junk. My original battery lasts way longer. I'm gonna proceed with a return/exchange and try another battery. I'm also gonna mail the manufacturer and see what they say.

    I'll let you guys know and for now I put back in my original battery...

    UK DS Lites are USG-003

    Isn't the USG just a prefix for parts on the DS Lite not systems (NTR was for the original DS)?

    USG-001 DS Lite console
    USG-002 power adapter (china/usa)
    USG-003 battery
    USG-004 stylus
    USG-005 game pak slot cover
    USG-006 rumble pak

    Really that's wierd I was just reading this:

    http://maru-chang.com/hard/ntr/english.htm#USG

    I would assume though that the batteries would be compatable. Wouldn't make much sense having multiple batteries that only work with specific DS Lites?
