Nintendo explains why 3DS battery life is only 3-5 hours

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has explained why Nintendo 3DS will only have a 3-5 hour battery life when the 3D is activated. Iwata, along with the designers of 3DS, chose the latest Iwata Asks 3DS discussion to defend the battery life of the console.


3DS system designer Ryuji Umeza kicked things off by explaining how he measured the battery life. "When I measured it by playing several Nintendo games with the backlight set to the brightest level and the power save mode turned off, battery duration was about three hours. But if you use the power save mode under the same conditions, it gets about 10-20% longer.

"And if you set the backlight to the darkest setting, the battery lasts five hours, but the power save mode makes less of a difference then."

Iwata stepped in: "In other words, the brightness of the backlight has the greatest effect on battery duration."

Umezu added: "Right. What's more, with the backlight set as high as it will go, battery life changes about 25% according to whether you're playing in 2D or 3D."

But what happens when you're using StreetPass mode? "In StreetPass mode, the system isn't always communicating, so there isn't much of a drain on the battery, but games that communicate a lot through local play and online play - with the backlight set to high - have an over 10% effect on the battery," said Umezu.

Iwata said that Nintendo has included the cradle because the 3DS has a relatively low battery life. "It will be necessary for this system to be charged more often than for the previous systems," said Iwata. "For that reason, we include a special charging cradle. We recommend that when players get home, they put their system there."
thats all I have to say...

LolGames4U is an unknown quantity at this point

OK. Sounds fine. Only problem is: will there be a car charger? I play DS lots in the car when my family's travelling and whatever and if there's no car charger there will be a problem.

There will probably be third party car chargers bought out later on.

Kind of a weak battery, wonder if they will sell one in the future that anyone can install that will double the life.

Anyone else think Wii remotes have low battery life as well?

Oh god yes, I despise the battery life but it works for me except when I play almost non-stop for a few hours...so I buy the eight pack batteries just for that. And I always keep an eye on the battery power when I play for a long while.

At least it's not as bad as the original PSP battery.

Eh, I don't see this as a problem. I only play my DS for maybe an hour or two at a time.

Fortunately that's only for 3DS games themselves. Playing DS games on it triples that.

It's about what you'd expect. Sacrifices had to come somewhere.
