    So I've noticed when I charge my 3DS and use the system, the brightness increases pretty considerably at max.

    Is this normal? I haven't seen this in the other DS systems or, well.. any of my electronics

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    I think most devices do that when charging. The battery can only handle a certain amount when being charged, so excess goes to other places.

    You two have similar answers, thank you

    I take it you experience it yourself? It looks pretty nice in that brightness

    Did you read the users manual?
    It says that at level 4 or 5 when charging brightness is increased

    Don't worry, it's normal. They say it in the manual.

    My guess is that when you plug it in the power supply, the power saver goes off.
