    Short answer, no
    Long answer, flashcarts like that are questionable at best. A lot of them run a questionable kernel that may or may not work as promised. Sometimes they even have a timebomb that render them unusable after a set period of time. There's no saying what you are going to get when dealing with carts like that.
    My suggestion would be one of these two
    R4i Gold (r4ids.cn): Wood R4 is a modified version of the Acekard Kernel to run on R4, M3 Simply, and R4i Gold (r4ids.cn.) It's basically praised for introducing all of the Acekard features so it basically had almost all the same features as akAIO. The only feature it didn't have was individual loader updates. Otherwise it had basically everything else.
    I always suggest it because it's extremely light on the battery, the ROM performance is perfect, the RTS is stable and simple, it's easy and highly customizable, homebrew soft-reset, and so many other features. I personally think it's the best kernel next to akAIO and it's also why I always suggest the R4i Gold over other carts.

    Acekard 2i: All the fun of Wood R4, although it lacks the RTS. The main reason I suggest the Ak2i is because it's hands down the most homebrew/hacker friendly flashcart. AkAIO can be used as loader for Moonshell, Menudo, and other homebrew kernels. This means if you are bored of your current kernel, you can easily switch it out for something better and not loose your akAIO loader. As well other projects like the one I am working on right here.
    (R4i Gold has a Moonshell version too, but this is just an example of one of features that's easier done on the Ak2i compared to the R4i Gold)
    I also suggest nds-card over any other site since buying from them helps support the Temp

    You can do that, but the same issues will apply. The issue with these kinds of R4 Clones is that they tend to be rather dodgy in quality and unpredictable to what you are going to get out of them.
