    Just wanted to ask if anyone had to same issues with the battery draining fairly quickly during sleep on Reinand CFW.

    When I was on RXtools, I faintly remember being able to put it in sleep for at least a few days before the battery drains. However on reinand CFW it seems to die about a day on sleep and light usage.

    Wondering if anyone is encountering the same issue thanks!/

    Retroarch on n3ds uses the full speed of the processor (like xenoblade chronicles) thus it will die faster than on a regular game.

    Yeah i know but when i was playing xenoblade on gateway emunand in sleep mode it did last for a couple of days with light gaming (30-45 min a day)...Maybe it's a retroarch issue, even in sleep mode it uses all power and dies fast? I will also try rxtools and see if i got the same issue

    im not sure about retroarch, but I can confirm by updating to the latest reinand, my battery issue seems to be fixed. I last unplugged it 10 hours ago, played phoenix wright for about 30 min. and im still at full bar. will be testing it out throughout the day today.

    Why would you leave it on sleep mode and not just shutting it down?

    Tried with RXtool and retroarch on sleep, it's dead this morning. So im thinking it's a retroarch problem

    my Old 3DS has about 24h on battery during sleep with the official system.

    How can you all speak about few days autonomy ? New 3DS/ old 3DS XL ?

    Well 24h on sleep is not that good, how old is you 3ds? I remember when i had a o3ds, my battery on sleep lasted more than 24h

    My old 3DS is a day one, but i noticed this low autonomy during sleep for a while.
    Maybe reaching a value close to 0% too often killed the battery.
    unfortunately, if i did sometimes, that was clearly due to the short autonomy while in sleep mode. Like keeping the 3DS

    i have a N3DS too, i didn't tester the autonomy yet.

    Compared to the PSP which can stay about 2 weeks on sleep mode, that's poor :D

    I'll perform some test to be aware my o3DS autonomy. Since i don't really look at time when i play, i can't say about in game autonomy, but i'll keep the o3DS on sleep the whole day tomorrow and check what happens.
