no matter how much I charge the icon always shows it's 3/4th full.

Has the battery started dying already?

Depends, if you last for 5 hours then it's probably just the display being strange.

If you last like 3-4 hours something might be up

Ah! Don't do that. I don't know the technicality of it all, but you're not supposed to let the 3DS battery drain to the point of auto-shutdown. It's bad for it. Sorry I can't really explain, but that's the consensus on it.

Stop making sense. People are trying to bash everything Nintendo does without thinking. Go somewhere else. - Mattperd, about the 3DS boards.

Technically it's bad for a lithium ion battery to completely drain, but that's the reason for the 3DS auto shutdown in the first place, so that it can save a small percentage of its power and the battery won't actually be completely empty.

Do you have the Nyko battery TC? It's been known to have weird battery display glitches, but it otherwise functions fine.

I have the default battery that came with the 3DS.

I don't know what it is.

I have no issue with the 3DS's battery power, so I could never understand what people complain about. "It won't last during my 15 hour flight." Oh man, take a nap.
