On this table are 21 handhelds, including the Vita, PSP and just about every flavour of Game Boy, DS and 3DS there is/was. The test is simple. Start them running, and see which one runs the longest.
Good god....GB Color lasted 36 HOURS!? Now THAT'S a battery life.
Those were the days.
36 hours off 2 AA's. Plus it was in color.
Something is up with the test or those batteries. I used to get around 20 hours playing Pokemon on the Gameboy Color using Energizer batteries.
Well theoretically, with better batteries, the old ones would win (no built in light). I personally believe Nintendo can't beat the Advance SP. It was small, very tough (damn I dropped mine a million times and it never broke, cant say the same for ten DS consoles), you could charge it, it lasted long, and was the first one with a built in light. The add-on for advance was not sufficient. I have a feeling that the dark caves in pokemon contributed to the light add-on for the advance.
Needs an aftermarket battery pack for the PSP. My PSP-3000 lasts 15 hours idle on low brightness.
vita has the ultimate battery life lol
That was a cool test. Now we know. And knowing is half the battle......not sure what the other half is....maybe just ...the battle
