Nintendo DSi battery life drops up to 50% from DS Lite

Nintendo DSi battery life drops up to 50% from DS Lite

Nintendo's new DSi handheld, announced today, may be a bit more portable than its DS Lite predecessor - 12-percent thinner in fact - but if you're expecting to use that portability to take it further afield for even more gaming then the estimated battery life ratings may be a disappointment.  While the DS Lite could last for 15-19hrs on a single charge at minimum brightness, that figure drops to 9-14hrs in the DSi; at highest brightness you'll get a mere 3-4hrs from the DSi, whereas the DS Lite would have entertained you for 5-8hrs.

Nintendo DSi: dual-camera handheld gaming, with new DSi Shop

Nintendo has announced its new DSi, the update to the DS Lite, at the company's Fall presentation in Japan earlier today.  As expected, it features the same dual-display clamshell layout as the DS (both larger at 3.25-inches, with the bottom display remaining a touchscreen) with additional media features: an external 3-megapixel camera, an internal video-call camera and an SD slot, together with internal storage.  The removal of the GBA cartridge slot has meant the DSi can be 12-percent thinner than the previous DS Lite.
