Just did a little battery test with the GamePad...

#1SuperMarioPro91Posted 12/3/2012 1:09:30 PM
And this is what I got on the absolute lowest settings (on the home menu).

Brightness = 1
Power Save = ON
Volume Slider = OFF/All the way down
Rumble = OFF
GamePad Display = OFF

05:34:02

5 Hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds.

Not bad, but then that means you can't play on GamePad to begin with to get those results. (Since there's no way to permanently turn off the screen instead of putting it on standby.)

Right. I'm going to put on NSMBU's title screen on in the background with my next test for lowest settings.

so you're trying to do a battery test without actually USING the product?

Which means nothing since its significantly lowered when your actually using the game pad (pressing buttons, etc).

It's a base reading to compare other results. It's how this stuff is done so just sit back and relax.

So it only lasts 5 hours when doing nothing?

Nintendo only chooses batteries with the Nintendo Seal of Quality.

We all know the battery life is abysmal. I'm not sure what you're trying to prove TC.

Brightness 1?
