    Somewhere, out there...
    I just got my DSTwo today and am using it on a 3DS XL. Is it normal for the 3DS battery to drain quick? I think I only got 1-2 hours of battery life today... Thoughts appreciated :)

    after 8-9 hours in sleeping mode with dstwo inside, my 3ds is out of battery. 2 hours of gaming is a little bit fast. i think 3 hours are normal.

    Yeah, unfortunately, that sounds abut right. I get between 1.5 and 3 hours on my N3ds depending on what game I'm playing. I simply never carry it in the slot in sleep mode because of the drain of charge. If I MUS, I shut it off first. Besides, there is always the potential to launch the dam thing from the slot accidentally and lose it.

    Yes the DStwo constantly drains electricity from the handheld you use it in. it is Because of the cpu if i remeber correctly
