Battery question

#1RamPaGe74Posted 7/31/2011 11:50:20 AM
I will be picking up a 3ds on August 12th and I am wondering is the battery really that abysmal? Can any of you give me some tips to extend battery life before I get it?

It isn't too bad IMO. If you want more battery you can buy a third party battery, those work pretty well
Some used to call me Inferior. Others call me PK Ike. But you can just call me Ike.

I have never once come close to running the battery dry.

Just know how to look after your stuff really.

The cradle helps heaps, if you're playing it as a console at home, then throw it onto the cradle when you're not using it or play via charger.

If you're out an about, you wouldn't need brightness more than 3 at max.

If a game you're playing doesn't use wireless (zelda etc) turn it off if you want.

The only time I've run out of battery was when I stayed at a relatives place for a week and forgot my charger.
