    I'm going to do several tests on my DS which will show the amount of battery life it has while playing on the CycloDS. I just did one recently even though I didn't played it Non-stop. I however, kept track how many hours, minutes I had played. Also let me reassure you that I didn't touch my DS until the following date, which was fully charged at that time. Here's Test 1 so far...

    Test 1.

    Date: 6/25/09
    Playing: Knights in the Nightmare
    5:10PM-9:24PM
    4 Hours 14 minutes

    Date:6/29/09
    Continue Playing: Knights in the Nightmare

    First sign of it going red at 6:06PM.
    5:21PM-6:06PM
    45 minutes

    Battery life on red till it finally died, I just beaten Capehorn but I didn't save -.-.
    6:06PM-6:57PM
    51 minutes

    Today's total of battery life.
    5:21PM-6:57PM
    1 hour 36 minutes


    Total Battery life on Electric Blue DS

    Playing: Knights in the Nightmare
    CycloDS w Battery Saver feature
    Total: 5 hours and 50 minutes

    Test 2 will be doing a different game, Knights in the Nightmare without the battery saving feature.

    Does no one see the difference between these two tests? Also test 1 and 2 did have an EZ Flash expansion inside the GBA slot at the time.

    Very nice. I wonder how the hell does the CycloDS Save the battery. And why can't other flashcarts do that.

    That's why the cyclo costs so much. It has much more hardware than other flashcarts.
