    Pretty much,but what you have to take in account about battery life is it also depends what kind of game your playing,if you use alot of wifi,screen brightness,volume level.....

    What he said, I uses a R4DS and due to my DS battery is can only run for 2-3 hours without wifi. I am using a DS Phat just to remind you.

    I'm using DS lite and my R4 is set on the second lowest brightness settings and it goes around way over 3 hours, I can play it the whole day and the battery is still green~

    This. Mine lasts at least 8 hours on second lowest setting. And that's with my DS on most of the day, but with a closed lid.

    In a word, yes.
    You are not supposed to play while charging.

    R4 Clones/Fakes have a history of using up a lot of battery life. While the original R4 has a really nice battery life, the clones tend to only work for 2-5 hours, 6 if your lucky while the real R4 is known to get 6-10 hours.
