    I have an old 3ds. My battery life in game is very poor only 1h and 3ds turns off. I changed battery to Chinese 2000 mah and nothing improve, 1h and 3ds is dead. Nothing helps, I tried different chargers and even i replaced sd card. I don't use any piracy flashcards. I've got latest software update and I reverted to factory settings, still the same battery life. Any help, suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Probably a dying battery. a new battery would probably fix it. Nintendo official battery

    Yep, an official Nintendo battery should help, if you can't get one directly from Nintendo or want to spend less you can try your luck on eBay or AliExpress (sellers here pull parts from faulty consoles, so they are official but used and generally a fair bit cheaper).
