How long does the 3DS Last when it's Idle? Mostly for things like StreetPass and SpotPass..

Im not sure if this should be posted here but I didn't really want to find the question area to ask this...

Mine was asleep for a lot of the time for 6 hours and the battery was barely dented.
an hour of face raiders and it went red.
That was with the 75% charge out of the box.

I hate the battery life but I guess over 6hrs is good for sleep... I guess I can use it at school for the Pedometer without worrying about the battery

3 days of battery life with SpotPass enabled? Fucking awesome.

3-6 hours of 3D gameplay? I can live with it. At least they give the charging cradle.

According to the manual, in sleep mode with streetpass activated.. three days (Operations Manual - Page 33)

Wow thats pretty good but actual play from that point is still disapointing..

In tests, With 3D on, full brightness and wireless, it last 3 hours on full charge. The manual sugests using power saving mode to auto adjust the brightness to increase the battery life. With brightness on 1 the manual states you will get 5 hours approx.

This is dependent on what you are using the console for I guess

An hour of FaceRaiders and already in the red? Ouch.
Well that was after about an hour AR games and other stuff, and 5 walking around for play coins.

I'd say you'd get around 9 hours or more from a full charge in standby with wireless on for streetpass.
