    Does anyone know what the maximum energy a DS phat battery can be? For example, I found the following that claims to be 1800 mAh:

    http://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-DS-Replacem...0426&sr=8-8

    while the one currently in my DS is only 850. I'm fairly stupid and am wondering if (A) a 1800 mAh battery would be plausible for the DS phat and (B) if you guys think the listed item is legitimate as the details say twice that it's 1800 while the generic picture says it's 850.

    I just though it'd be cool to double my battery life for $7 if it would work.


    Anyway, thanks in advance for the help.

    Basiclly you get what you pay for.

    I bought one from the Shoptemp when it was still around, that was an 1800 and it lasted for like 2 hours max.

    Always buy battery from Nintendo.

    Those "high capacity" batteries are usually fake. If they are "high capacity" then their life cycle is really short.

    Basically, higher capacity battery has shorter life cycle and higher discharge rate (can't hold power for a long time).
