EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE SAVING CARTS -

A sur­pris­ing ben­e­fit of in­stalling bat­tery clips in your carts is that you’ll be able to re­place game bat­ter­ies with­out los­ing your saves. Blog­ger Nathan Bias rec­om­mends the “hot-swap” tech­nique, in which you keep power flow­ing to a car­tridge by plug­ging it into a turned-on con­sole, then swap out the bat­tery while the game’s run­ning. “The con­sole is pro­vid­ing the juice to keep the cart alive,” he says. “Then, when you turn the con­sole off, it’ll go back to the bat­tery.” Any­one at­tempt­ing this tech­nique should take care to ground them­selves to avoid harm­ful shocks.
