    Had a EZFlash 3, and I remember the first thing I had to do when I got it was charge it for like 8 hours in the USB cradle, and then top it off once a month of so like that. Does the G6 use a battery like that, or no?

    No, you don't have to charge it.

    I'm not so sure about that. There is a battery in the G6, which as far as I know is used to hold saved games until you next reboot or switch on the DS. So if your battery is low and you save a game then switch off, your save might be lost. You'll be ok if you soft-reset to the G6 menu or quickly switch off and on again.

    See the What's going on with saves?, Need to restart G6 Lite now? thread http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=34837

    At this point, no one's battery should be low unless theirs was defective.

    Anyone know how long the battery in the G6 keeps its charge, if it isn't plugged into USB or a DS?
