    Battery getting old and dont hold charge really common in rechargable devices.

    The old DS (phat) has a runtime of about 5-6hrs on a full charge. When you charged it overnight, was the charging indicator off in the morning when you removed the charger?

    I dont know how the phat works but the DS lite turns off the charging indicator when it has a full charge.

    Plus what devices do you have on your DS? some slot-2 devices are power hogs and cut down battery life tremendously.

    when i wake up in the morning and check on it the charge light is off. and for software i usually run my m3 ds simply. unless im playing a acctual gba game.. i called gamestop this morning and they said to bring it in and they will exchange it for me.
