I just tested how long sleep mode lasts with wireless on

#1Lost_Seraph09Posted 8/21/2011 5:52:06 PM
It lasted for 55 hours, or 2 days and 7 hours. I haven't played any game and I only opened the lid about 4 times. I guess with wireless off it'll be about 3 days.

Well that quite a bit, unlike most people report. Thanks for the info.

Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.

One site reported 75 hours for their test. Did you walk around with it, a.k.a., were you activating the accelerometers?

Wouldn't that consume more the batteries? Maybe that site had a power pak + or something?

The sarcasm was seething out of this post. I couldn't help but chuckle. XD

Mine lasted a little more than 3 days when I tried it. I wonder why?

Yes, that's why I asked. If the TC did this, then it would explain the significant difference in the test results. I'm sure the other site didn't test with a third-party battery, but leaving your 3DS stationary is a fairly useless test of sleep mode + wireless function, so my question was to suss out if the TC had a more "real world" assessment of the test.

Obviously, the battery sucks for this system.

In fact, this system sucks all-together.

I'm never buying another 3DS again, two is enough!

Yeah I did walk around a bit. I got about 2200 steps, but didn't get any spot/streetpasses.
