I just let my 3DS battery run out

I heard something happens with the Street Pass if this happens. What exactly happens, and should I be worried?

Your 3DS shuts itself down before the battery completely expires. Try taking the battery out if you wanna mess up your street pass function.

Wait, why would you guys replace your batteries, have they died out already?

My brother let his 3DS run out completely and we still street pass multiple times a day. They may have fixed the bug in a recent update.

no. just because there are longer lasting batteries.

The Streetpass issue was when the battery was removed for more than 10-ish seconds or long enough for the internal clock to reset. Then again, if there's no backup, the clock would reset as soon as you popped the main battery.

They are supposed to have fixed it with one of the previous updates.

I swapped batteries in my two 3DSes while both were on the update that fixed the issue, and have not had any problems with Streetpass, even with the time/date reset and having the battery out for an extended time.
