    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.

    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
