Why did the Sega Game Gear draw a lot battery power?
I possess an old Game Gear from the very early 90s, and also have actually wondered for several years regarding why it's such a power hog. It takes 6 (SIX!!) double-A batteries, every one of which can drain pipes within a hr or 2 of having fun.
The initial GameBoy just made use of 4 AA batteries and also it absolutely did not drain pipes as quickly as the Game Gear.
I recognize that they are from various firms and also made use of various principles, yet just what was the Game Gear doing that made use of a lot power? I recognize it has shade, would certainly that make a distinction?
