How's the battery life?

It's really my only worry about 3DS... I also heard you have to charge a while too

It's 3-5 hours on maximum brightness, 3D on, and volume all the way. On lower settings, or while playing a normal DS or Virtual Console game, battery life will be significantly higher.

If it bothers you, the Nyko PowerPak+ is only 25 ($30 if you get the one with the stand), and gives you about double the standard battery life.

Not good. But not horrendously, laughably terrible as some make it out to be.

Expect a new model with better battery life in 1 year or so.

This. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise. The battery life is decent and nowhere near as bad as some people make it out to be.

Cool, cuz I totally hate the iPod Touch's battery life for gaming, but it's tolerable

Oh and why would they make a new model rather than just an improved battery?
