    Usual settings are brightness at 4, power saving off, and wireless switch always on. When I get really desperate if the battery is low and I really want to play I will turn off wireless and put everything at lowest. Most often the case is I don't have to and have access to the charging cradle.

    Lowest ever, tried level 2 but I don't feel comfortable, even though I can see nicely at max or any level 2, level 1 is an ideal choice, because it's just so relaxing.
     
  8. I keep it on 4 when I'm outside but when I'm playing indoors, it's usually on 2. I rarely ever use power-saving mode and I keep the WiFi on.

    actually, 4 or 5... I don't know why, but I really like the brightness... and I never play for that long without being able to charge, so battery time doesn't bother me ^^

    I usually keep my setting at 3 or 4 (no power-saving) and leave the wifi on.

    You get used to it. I used to play with my DSiXL on 5 all of the time, and then I started using 2. It's now my favorite setting.

    How much is the battery life on average for brightness 4 with no power saving?

    Brightness 2, powersving on, and wifi on. It usually gets a about 5-6 hrs, so I'm good with that.
