    I get only about 2 hours out of my dsi fully charged when using a scdstwo its almost you have to have it plugged in to play it lol
    Will I need to get a new battery from Nintendo is this keeps happening? and should I get an Acekard 2i?

    Well the DSi doesn't have the best battery life to begin with. Turn your brightness down if you're able to. It's because the CPU or whatever in the DSTWO, it eats up battery power like a bitch.

    Still better than Gamegear. Remember how many batteries you'd have to put in that thing a day to play it?! YIKES!

    I think we all know that the Supercard DSTWO kills battery very fast.

    I can get up to about 3-4 hours of playing the DSTWO on my DS with the lowest Brightness setting. That's as far as it can go.

    Yeah but you could play Alex Kidd in Shinobi world!!!
    [on topic] Battery life an the price are the only real problems with the DSTwo, "with great power comes less than great battery life"

    Flash carts with more features tend to eat up battery more quickly. Try turning off some of those features that you don't need (if it's even possible). Otherwise, I suppose you could get a simpler flash cart but that's not worth it in my opinion. And no, your DS battery will not die.

    No way. My DSi lasts more than 6 hours and I'm using a Supercard DSTwo. Brightness set in 2. Indoors you don't need more than that.

    How old is your DS battery? If it went through multiple charges like, a lot, it's most likely the battery itself. I think these batteries only have a charge limit of around 1000 times? I could be wrong. But that's being generous. The more charges you give the battery, ironically, the shorter it will last.

    should I buy an Acekard 2i?
    and one more thing Supercard Team should put an option where you can turn off the CPU
    for game that are already working
