Nintendo World 2011: 3DS hardware specs revealed

The upcoming handheld will have 5 hours worth of juice, tops, and will take over 3 hours to charge

Nintendo have revealed the juicy technical details of their upcoming 3D-enabled handheld on their Japanese website. The stand-out detail is the shorter than expected battery life, reported at between 3-5 hours, depending on how much the 3D display feature is used.
