Battery Duration
  • Approximately 3.5 to 7 hours when using Nintendo 3DS software
  • Approximately 7 to 12 hours when using Nintendo DS software

Depending on the brightness of the screens, the batter duration varies. When the "automatic brightness adjustment" is on, the brightness of the screens changes automatically in accordance with the brightness of the surroundings and, therefore, the battery duration becomes longer in dark places and becomes shorter in bright places. Also, when the "energy saving mode" is on, the battery duration becomes longer.

The above Battery Durations are rough indications and can be shorter depending on the status of use.
