Why such a big difference in standby time?

I do find it very annoying as you cannot even, say, leave 3DS in sleep mode when you go to work, as it will be dead when you get home unless it's plugged in.


how long are your work days? i ask because i have my system in sleep mode during my work hours, and it hasn't come close to dying (if i played it during the day, that's a different story).

My 3ds xl lasts 3 days with some playing thrown in, so I don't know what you're doing.

depending on available networks, other consoles nearby, and the presence of magnets the standby time of a 3DS can vary a lot.
mine was drained in no more than 4 hours of standby once, but usually it can last the day without losing even 1 bar in standby.

Standard 9-5. It might just barely survive if it was at full charge, but it usually won't.

My 3ds lasts 2-3 days in sleep mode and that's with wireless on >_>
