Is it normal that my 3ds doesn't charge while playing DS games?

At very least I know that the orange light isn't lit.

It turns on immediately after I turn the game off.
I love dragons!

I think it has something to do with the way the system works while in "DS mode." The wi-fi can't be turned on or off while it's playing ds games as well, have to have it on before loading one.

I have also noticed that I don't get StreetPasses if I have a DS game loaded, even if the WiFi is already on.

The street pass thing is normal, but I'm not sure about not charging.

Yeah this isn't normal except for the street pass.
