    hey all

    i finally found a new 3ds xl that has a ips panel.
    i bought it new in the store i searched the serial before hand online it said it was ips (and it rly was) i guess the system is old? because it came witb firmware 9.5 but what i find weird is when i unboxed it turned it on for first time the battery light was flashing red meaning its almost dead i thought new 3ds xl came some what pre charged .. is it because the console has old firmware so it said in a box for a while and lost its charge over time? i rly dont want to return it risking of losing ips panel

    The battery discharges while it sits and 9.5 is around a year and a half old so not unusual. New systems ship with about a half-capacity charge too.
