    Sorry if this is the wrong thread but I just had to share this to you guys in
    serebii.A while ago ago I was eating in a resturant called "Jolibee".The place was totally empty except that there was one poor family having a mini christmas party.The parents said "Maligayang pasko anak" which means "merry christmas son".They handed small box wrapped with dirty wrappings.The child said "Salamat tay at nay" which means "thanks dad and mom" then he hugged his parents.He slowly unrapped the gift which turned out to be a second-hand gameboy advanced SP and a poor quality pokemon Firered with it.His parents said that they couldn't afford a ds for the son for christmas since they were poor so they bought a gameboy and a firered in a secondhand shop.The boy was already bursting in tears of joy for his new and probably his only game.He hugged his parents and they huggged him back."maligayang pasko" "merry christmas"

    Did they get a charger too?

    it's touching, but would be terrible if they didn't get a charger with it.

    Actually i didn't see a charger...how long does a gameboy advanced SP run without one?

    A few hours, depending on if you have the brightness on or off.

    EDIT:
    Battery Life: 10 hours continuous play with light on, 18 hours with light off; needs at most 3 hours recharging.

    Poor them,i feel like giving my charger..SniffSob.
    Since they are new to gameboy,they probably use light on and volume up.

    To be honest, I didn't think this thread would still be active. But if he didn't get a charger it won't be much good.
