    I keep reading how passcards consume a lot of battery life, so I was just wondering how much in comparison to playing a regular DS game or using a flashed DS. I'm mainly talking about the newer passcards too, like the Passkey3. Has anybody done any comparisons on this sort of thing?

    Yeah, I keep reading this information.

    Maybe it consumes more battery 'cause the DS is using two slots (GBA and DS) at the same time?

    A good option is use flashme on your DS.

    But that is one thing:

    If I flash the DS, I must insert a original DS game to use the sleep mode. Will the the Flashed DS + Original DS Cart consume less battery then the DS using NoPass/Passme device?

    How do you people know passcard's consume much battery??

    Passcards is only a DS booter, nothing else. Once you boot into the DS, you can remove the Passcard, and still load DS games.

    If the passcard actually keeps on drawing power while it's in the slot, then just remove it once G6 is loaded up. After the G6 is loaded, you don't need the Passcard to boot the games.
