    Wow that's long i renember last time when i usen brand new DS classic with moonshell i was able to watch about 2 hours of movie and then battery died. Of corse now i use ds lite, but since it is used and i dont watch movies now on moonshell i cant write here about life of Lite batterie , but i think that your battery have good score.

    I think if you will drain it to the end every time it should last 1000 cycles.

    7 hours is a good amount of time for any battery when you think most portable mp3 players batterys only last about 8 hours of music.

    Yes, of course, games don't use as many resources that videos need. Most NDS's usually clock around 5 and a half to 6 hours on looped videos. You're actually pretty lucky. Games should last... I dunno, 15~+ hours? Depends on how much you've used your DS of course.

    Side note: Stop adding z's to everything, it sounds like a tacky Ubisoft game suffix.

    If worried about battery life, just grab one of those double capacity 2000mAh batteries they have on dealextreme.

    Over there.
    Sleep mode on R4 sucks power. Mine's almost dead. Just only about 3-4 hours on games. Need to get either a new DS or battery soon. [​IMG]

    IIRC, not for Li-ion batteries.

    Wi-fi drains the battery very quickly
    Headphones use less power than the built in speaker
    If you have it on minimum brightness, it might give you an hour or two more

    Because it's a lithium battery, it will lose about 1% of it's charge each day.

    If that's true, then it's logical to say that after 100 days, the battery will completely die?

    no. 1% of the current charge, not of the maximum charge. Exponential decline, not linear. It will never get completely empty.
