Nintendo 3DS torn down again, huge battery compared

Nintendo 3DS gets dissection ahead of launch

The Nintendo 3DS has been given a complete teardown by TGBUS days before its arrival in Japan and more than a month before its arrival in the US. The handheld game machine is known to be very efficient and puts virtually all the processing on a single circuit board. Its large battery was also in sight and at 1,300mAh was much more than the 840mAh of a regular DSi and even more than the 1,050mAh DSi XL.

The extra capacity is necessary to drive the faster processor and Pico200 graphics. In tandem with the larger, glasses-free 3D top screen, however, the drain may be enough to drop the battery life to three to five hours where the DSi can often get five to eight.

When it ships to the US, the 3DS will cost $250. [via Kotaku]
