    Greetings forumites, my old 3DS XL is having battery issue it's draining fast and i mean really fast! While playing mario kart 7 it's battery signal red light begin blinking within 4 mins or so and i have to plug in the AC adapter to keep it going. It charges to blue light quickly too. I have no idea what is wrong. Been having this 3ds for 3 years and I have a habit of putting it to charge while playing for long extended duration even during my sleep. I'm not sure if this spoils the battery or the homebrew i installed in the past bricked the battery. Please provide me with some solution thank you!

    Only solution I can think of is get a battery replacement.

    Overall battery life is finite. Sounds like your battery is ready for retirement.
