DS lite battery is fucked, barely does 2 hours. I ordered a chinese replacement but it's even worse. What're my options?

Get a 3DS with an R4 card or emulate.

DS can be emulated easily nowadays. Don't bother with scalpers or chinks.

you can probably find a full replacment online pretty cheap. otherwise buy another battery but this time not chink made

f0ae83  No.16099781


If your issue with playing on the 3DS is the stretched resolution, that can be fixed by holding Start when you launch your game (it'll launch in the original resolution).

For fuck's sake, idiot. Go get a dual major electrical engineering and chemical engineering degree so you can design new battery tech for the future. Lithium ion is causing all technological progress to stagnate. Hint: look into fluoride-ion batteries

I just hate the 3DS in every way is all. Shit ergonomics, shit aesthetics, shit battery life, shitty black borders on DS games.

f0ae83  No.16099852


Ok then either buy a used DS Lite that isn't a Chinese bootleg or emulate. If emulation doesn't have enough aesthetic appeal then I suggest time traveling to the past and stocking up on DS's.

Nice thread, don't care about your problems.

I finally put Ketsui Death Label with the translation patch on my DS yesterday, Not sure why I didn't do it earlier, it's by far the best game on the system. It suffers a bit from vertizontal syndrome/not enough time to dodge the bullets but I'm loving it, unlocked all the way to Hard-C.

The tutorial with IKD-san is charming beyond all reason.

That you're complaining about 3DS is understandable, but that you consider the Lite better proves how much of a fucking retard you are.

>shitty glossy surfaces because muh Apple, instant Fingerprint Edition

>looks like some makeup case girls would carry in their purses (not surprising considering how it was marketed)

>shit placement of said shitty d-pad and buttons, highly uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time unless you have tiny hands

Lite must be the shittiest yet most popular system "update" of all time.

Ok OP here are your instructions for the battery's annode and cathode https://archive.fo/CEKnM here is the specific heat table https://archive.fo/yCr8s and here is how to dope the glass with the H3C3 mixture https://archive.fo/Apa5F . I am assuming you already have/know how to make a refinery hot enough to achieve 3,000C and how to make a case with wiring for it and that you don't give a shit about USA patent law.

In 50 years when I'm still playing my DS and the official hardware is extinct I would happily pay some guy thousands to make me a new system.

Gonna have to lay it honest to you, OP, the DS Lite screen is terrible. Get a 3DS XL/New 2DS XL and play the DS games with native resolution by holding start or select once the game begins to load. The PPI is pretty much identical, plus you get a better display with better backlight, deeper colors, and way less ghosting.

f691df  No.16103184


Hold it loose in your hands, the shoulder buttons should line up with the middle knuckle on your pointer finger. Don't attempt to press L or R with the tips of your fingers, do it further down the finger. There, now the DS Lite is the most comfortable handheld of all time.

47068c  No.16103201


You could try getting a broken Lite with its battery and use that, plus have some spare parts just incase.


I found the visual quality to be better on my Lite than my 3DS or XL.

I don't have a better shot of the DS Lite screen as I threw it out due to the glaring issue shown on the photo. When using one of the XL sized 2DS/3DS handhelds, press and hold start or select, the pixel density is as close to identical as possible. I used to think that the DS Lite was better for playing DS games, until I started playing them on a 2DS XL with native resolution.

0a0aa2  No.16103894


I have tried to hold the piece of shit in every imaginable way and you're full of shit. The only way to not make the incredibly and objectively poorly placed d-pad not unreachable with the tip of your thumb without keeping your thumb at a 90 degree angle at all times, is to balance the whole thing on your fingertips. That gets highly uncomfortable if you play for more than ten minutes. The only way to avoid this problem is by having tiny, ten-year-old hands.

It's a fucking brick, and a glossy brick at that which certainly doesn't help it. There is no way any even remotely sane person can actually think that it's well designed or comfortable. There are no words to express just how utterly awful the DS Lite is.

3f30b1  No.16104029

Gonna hijack this faggot's thread to ask if anyone else has problems with their New 3DS XL's D-pad. Specifically the left function. It becomes unresponsive until you have to work it up a bit. I have barely any technical know-how, and I still have a GameStop wireless PS2 controller in pieces somewhere.

Physical has value to me. I like the look and feel of the DS Lite. I enjoy putting the cartridges in, I enjoy owning it and having it on a shelf.

I feel your pain, OP. Had a DS lite with me for over 10 years, the hinges gave in, and now, the upper screen won't hold in place. The console works fine otherwise, I had to buy a replacement, but even then, my DSi, which is almost as old, has trouble reading my carts sometimes, and likes to hang my games up everyonce in a while, which sucks if I'm going for battle frontier in pokemon or I didn't save in game for a long time. I dunno about batterylife, 2 Hours never really bothered me, and it lasts longer if I play GBA games, but the POS plastic hinges means I have to buy a plastic shell and basically take everything, cables, screens, ect from my old DS Lite and put it in the new plastic shell, without fucking anything up.

Best handheld ever made, bar none. If anyone offers another source where you can buy batteries, maybe shells that won't break within a year or two, I would greatly appreciate it. Fuck ebay

387f21  No.16104338


I don't own the handheld you have, but my 2DS XL's buttons worked great, but the control stick was incredibly stiff until I broke it in by using it. The c clit button is also horrible, it's too stiff and has no flex.

I've never really had battery issues with any of my Nintendo handhelds. I suppose I ended up getting lucky with those, since most of the other rechargeable batteries I have, including the one to my old HP laptop, are all pretty much fucked. I might have to figure out to rebuild laptop battery cells if I ever get around to unfucking the cooling on that portable furnace.

bc8756  No.16106234

The reason why it only lasts 2 hours is because the backlights are shit, the transistors in the ds cpu's were bigger than student loan debt, and battery technology back 13 years ago was dogshit, my phone battery is lighter and holds 3x the charge (3,300mAh as opposed to 1,000mAh for the ds lite) it's a fucking miracle you get 3 hours out of it. Find a half reputable seller that will sell a 1,200 or 1,500mah battery.

f691df  No.16107422


I used to get a good 10+ hours out of it though, I know batteries degrade over hundreds of recharges but I don't understand how hardware inside the DS affects the battery and battery life.

bc8756  No.16107509


Battery electrolytes dry up. the discharge and recharge process causes a small amount of side reactions between the different battery components and can cause irreversible loss of battery life; An overheated or overcompressed environment compounds those malfunctions. Corrosion within the electronic components and on the circuit board traces can cause voltage/power issues. If diodes, capacitors, voltage sensors, etc start to fall that can cause hardware instability and decrease battery life.

Also, the games released during the early ds lifespan were far less demanding from the components than late generation ds games, which were designed for the DSI and dsixl production lines, which has higher powered processors, more memory and ram, etc. Simply meaning the hardware is going to be worked harder and cause more battery drain as a result. You should also check the brightness levels you have your backlight set to, a low backlight uses a lot less power than the backlight set to full.

65c15e  No.16107526


But whats the comparison between the 2DS XL and the DSiXL? Input lag and display does any anon know? I'm thinking of buying a DSiXL or a WiiU to play DS games on.

I am in a similar boat, OP.

My DS lite battery is very weak and the hinge on the console is loose despite replacing the mechanism with a new one.

I ended up just getting a DSi XL.

I actually ended up liking it.

It has good battery life, buttons are good, and the screen size never really bothered me.

If the weight of the XL bothers you, you can just get a regular DSi, but you'll get less battery life.

I'd recommend against the WiiU unless you want to play them on a TV screen because it's emulation, not native runtime like Nintendont running GC games on Wii.

I'd still recommend a phat or Lite for DS games, but I suppose if you want to avoid 3DS but still want the bigger screen, access to DSi homebrew or features, or WPA connection for Wiimmfi-compatible games, you could go DSi XL.

For those unaware, Wiimmfii is a 3rd party Nintendo WFC server. It's mostly used for Mario Kart Wii (and to a lesser extent Brawl) but it supports a lot of the popular games fairly well. no Wifi Plaza for gen4 sadly
