    They do, but the results are varied from what I heard. Some say they last longer, others say they get shorter plying time. [​IMG]

    Just stick with the original type.

    it just means its used. Why you use at the brightest level, though? I only use that in emergency situations. I always set it to 0 or 1.

    Its better to use a lower brightness. And since its a used ds, theres a chance the battery is dying. DS battery is good for around 500 charges or so from what i hear.

    You can try the supposedly "2000 mah" batteries at dealextreme for the Ds lite. They aren't acutally 2000 mah but slightly higher than original capacity.
