Does the battery go down faster when you use the gba emulator?
i came directly to the forum to post the exact same thing.
I was wondering if it is normal that when playing GBA games (pokemon emerald, to be more specific) the battery life only lasts 2-3 hours.
anyone else experiencing this ?
well yea of course your going to lose a lot of battery life us gpsphone, look what your running on your ipod.
but turn off your wifi connection while playing and your battery will last a little longer...
It is not unusual, just make sure SSH and Wifi are off, turn down your brightness a bit, and make sure all background apps. are closed.
Thats about all you can do.
how can I shut down background applications? Never figured out how to do it, I mean, is there any kind of Task Manager app I'm missing?
if you want to play more time make this: Turn off SHH, Turn off Wi-Fi and dont listen music
EDIT: Sorry this already post it (i dont read tyrl8989)
It's called SysInfo, you can find it under Utilities Please Register or Log in to view images it shows you the processes and the hardware.

Yes I also noticed the battery drain.... O well, It's fun playing games when ur bored or etc. lolPlease Register or Log in to view images
Yeah, for me I think I get about 4 hours? Never really played until it died out, but about 3-4 hours is about right.
For those who want to conserve more battery, just do the basics, Wi-Fi off, SSH off, Brightness down, BUT don't scale the screen. If you have the full screen on, you use more battery, but it's your opinion. I prefer it on.
Also, if you need to close background applications, you can go into Summerboard or SysInfo and Restart the Springboard. This clears anything that is running, I don't know if it's already mentioned but it's better than manually closing every app.
Actually, it charges my battery up.... JK
but after playing for a bit, my battery does jump up a bit ( i got the numeric battery) like once im done playing, it will jump from say 20 -> up to 30?
