Yes. When you play 3ds games with 3d on and the backlight at the highest setting, the battery lasts you about 3-5 hours.
When playing DS games, the battery lasts about 8 hours.

Well, I can give you my investigation on this.

With 3D, Max Brightness, Power Saving Mode off, full volume and wireless on, you can get a max of 5 hours. I think I've already zonked it with the charger so I get about 4 :(

But with everything low/on/off (whatever the opposite of above is), you should get something like 9+ hours. I was able to play Shadow Wars for about that long, much more than expected, tbh.
