I think Nintendo want it to live in sleep mode on cradle and treat it like we would a mobile phone that way we make the most of Spotpass and Streetpass.

i think the battery life is even worse than i was expecting. you don't realize how short 3 hours is until you see the battery halfway down within one sitting. i'm even playing gameboy games with the backlight on 2 with wireless off and 4 hours seems to be the most i've squeezed out of it yet. it's pitiful enough to make nyko's battery worth checking out.

on that note, i installed the nyko powerpak+. but let me doubt the double time they say.
surely better, but nothing lifechanging neither.
still, it gives me the safe pillow i needed.

i recommend not using the little screwdriver given with it. it got one of the 4 screw very used, nearly impossible to pull off. i had to carve it with a blade my screw so the screwdriver could have a grip and pull it off.
you better take a real screwdriver that wont wear off that screw.

what does the energy saving feature actually do?

I've been noticing that sometimes when I put on the cradle in sleep mode, in the morning it is turned off. Anyone else get that?

It's just an empty pot...

No, wait!
There's something at the bottom!
It's just somebody's gum...

no way im doing this. i dont see the point of lower my gaming quality for saving the battery.
play it at its fullest, get the nyko pak its only 20 bucks and crank your battery life enough to be worth it.
enough to wait for the next big battery
