    What does battery inside the G6 Lite do?
    Is the battery in my G6 Lite going to die eventually?
    How do I replace the battery once it dies? Just pull it out an pop another one in?

    the battery is to power the memory that your game save is in when your DS is off. like all batteries, it will eventually die. i would hope that the battery doesn't get used if there is no save present, but who knows? replacing it may be as easy as pulling it out and putting another one in, but it could also be soldered in. i haven't looked at it myself, so i'm not sure which is the case. either way, it is do-able.

    The battery should last a very long time. The battery in my Bung flash card (for gb and gbc) is over 8 years old and it still works fine. I think the G6 lite battery is replaceable.

    I believe the battery is rechargable. On your G6, just plug it in and leave it for about 4-8 hours and it will give the battery a recharge. I went about 4 months without recharging, but now i go about 2-3 weeks between recharge so i dont lose saves.
