3DS to have lame battery life

08 Jan

Three to five hours of battery life to be specific. That’s pretty wimpy compared to the amount of time a regular DS can hold up(close to 15 hours). I expect this is because of 3D demands of the new handheld.  Cool graphics cost you some hefty battery life. As for recharging your system, that will take 3.5 hours.

This is not a deal breaker but it is a little annoying. I could go quite a bit of time without charging my DS but then again I don’t play it regularly. I guess the 3DS will not be made for those long plane rides.

    3 to 5 hours seems fine. Plus it will keep me from hurting my eyes from prolong gameplay.

    If you wait until the later models of it, it’ll probably have a better battery.
