    I heard about that 3DS can be only playable for 3-5 hours and the brand battery is only about 1300MaH. I was looking about about replacement battery and I notice this 2000MaH replacement battery that should roughly play for about 20 hours. Do you think this battery pack is good to order it?

    Wouldn't it have to be a 5200Mah battery to give you 20 hours? I would assume a 2000Mah battery would only give you a max of 7.5 hours?

    Well I don't know really but I blame the some website I read about saying they give 20+ hour battery life on 1800MaH-2000MaH. It really stupid infomation if you ask me. LOL

    My advice: wait for reviews to come. [​IMG]

    solution: Play your 3DS with 3D slider half up, light lvl 4 and power saving mode. I get about 7 hours playing with this with the normal battery.

    If you want to get this, you might want to wait for some proffesional reviews.

    Wow, that's a whole lot of juice. Somewhere around the DSi I guess (at max brightness) [​IMG]

    Assuming you mean a 3DS game.

    Wait about 7 hours? Really? Can you test that?

    AFAIK 3DS = 3-5 Ds = 5-8 hours.

    Anyway the slider position I believe wouldn't make a difference.

    A USB battery eh?
    Hm...

    I ordered a DSi USB charger cable, going to plug the 3DS cradle into my router since I never use that USB slot and it's always on.

    My 3ds can last 7 hours also playing a 3ds game... its called power saving mode. Idk why anybody ever complains about battery life and never tries the power saving mode, it really does help the battery time.

    I have power save mode off. Do you know how it works? I thought it just lowered the brightness slightly.

    Anyway, I have never had a problem with the battery. My 3DS hasn't gotten to one bar (Red battery) since I got it. I only turn my 3DS off at night, but always keep it on in my pocket, and have it on me all day.

    I just drop it on the charger everytime I'm not using it (So basically, every night) and I haven't had a problem. The charging dock was the best solution to a big problem.

    I wish some took a bite, and reported the outcome from all these replacement batteries.

    Power saving mode dims colors that are darker colors anyways. So blacks are black, instead of a lit-black-screen type of black. It really is noticable on DS games, cause of the black bars. When in a DS game, use the Home button and the shortcuts to see the difference between power-saving and not.
    I have my brightness on 4 with power-saver on most of the time....I never turn it off, I just put it on the charger at night. It's died because of a blinking red battery once, when I had first got it, played it all day, and on full brightness with no power saver.

    Considering the 3DS itself costs as much as a typical netbook, some apprehension towards using aftermarket mods as these is understandable.
