I've read that at max settings, you're lucky to even get 3 hours out of it. Is it possible for Nintendo to ever release a new battery? Because I know they're going to release a newer model with a better battery life. but I don't want to buy a 2nd 3DS. So, would Nintendo ever just release a new battery? I have small hands and I don't think the Nyko battery would fit in my hands. besides, I have an aqua blue 3DS and it would look goofy with the battery. --- "Lindsay Lohan got un-hot the very minute that the credits to Mean Girls concluded" - NNG1213

Go buy one of the Nyko batteries or something if it's such a big deal. --- GT: ConfederateRokr Live every week like it's shark week

3 hours is fine if your playing at home. If your going out and need the extra battery life, turn off 3D and lower the brightness and you should get a decent amount of battery life. Or as others have mentioned, get a battery pack(if you want to keep everything at max). I doubt Nintendo will release a better battery. Nintendo WANTS you to rebuy newer models.

You probably have wireless off as well.

I'm guessing since I've never played outside of my house, that's the reason I haven't had issues with the battery life. --- I will always be able to chop onions in Wii Party faster than you. Always. Proud female gamer.

It isnt. Just have things you know you wont use turned off and it should last a while. --- Pokemon White:1163-1399-0122 Nintendo 3DS:3394-3658-2611
