3DS Charge Kit
This product is a miracle!!!
It is easy to install and gives your DS 2-3 times the battery life it had when I got it. It also makes the system easeir to hold because it adds about 1/4 of and inch of thickness. I love this and am thankful I can now play longer. I highly reccommend this product!
I installed the battery (5 min max) and left it charging in the cradle all day. I came home from work yesterday and played Zelda 3DS on it for 4 hours and only saw the battery lose 1 slot (There are 4 Battery slots in the meter at the top right of the 3DS homescreen to show how full it is). So here were my playing conditions - Brightness at 4, Power Save On, Wifi Off, 3D all the way up, and Speakers all the way up (no headphones). That is pretty freaking good. Totally makes me confident to take my 3DS on a trip or whatever. Battery size essentially creates another "layer" to the cake, but whatever. If it takes away to concern about having to recharge every 2 1/2 hours on the stock battery I am fine with that. Only thing better would be a similar capacity battery that fits in the original casing of the device and doesn't add any bulk, but until that comes out I am very happy with my purchase.
So i bought this for my 3DS because we all know the original 3ds battery is just bad.... So i picked this bad boy so i can actually enjoy my games for more then 2.5 hrs when 3d is fully on.. This thing delivers a amazing extra amount of playtime. I haven't completely depleted the battery yet to see how long it can last but so far i have ran LOZ: OOT on full 3d for 3.5 hours and i still had over 3/4 of my battery. for regular DS games you can probably push about 11 hours out of this bad boy. This extended battery does the make the handheld a little bigger but it still feels comfortable in your hands. I highly recommend this product to anybody who owns a 3ds simply becasue you will be able to play your games on 3d for a much longer, enjoyable time. (getting this battery on is a little bit of a pain. The dock that comes with it is pretty cool)
A must have accessory
If you're like me getting tired of having to charge your 3DS every 3-4 hours or so then look no further. this battery enhancer gives your 3DS about 50-75% more than the built battery. I got about 9 hours of it with 3D on and on the highest brightness setting. installing it is easy especially since it comes with easy instructions and a screwdriver. I would've given this 10 if it didn't make it so much thicker. This is the one accessory you should have. It'll let you're 3DS last through long car rides and airplane flights.
A must have for the 3ds
I purchased this a couple of wks after the 3ds launch I will say this is most def worth the money. As we all notice the poor battery life of the instock battery that comes with the 3ds I charged the battery last Friday and today it went Red and needed to be recharged It is def worth it to buy this the battery lasts a lot longer than the battery that came with the handheld console its a little bit thicker on the back of the system but it still fits in the case I brought for it I enjoy the 3ds more now that I have a longer battery life those buying the 3ds need to consider this battery for it its well worth the money to keep your gaming sessions going longer go buy it its worth it
Looks good, Feels good, & More power!
A great design for both the battery and the dock. Dock lights are on the bright side, but can easily be turned off via the power button. As another review states, the battery adds just enough thickness to make the 3DS much easier to hold. Only thing that I can think of that would make this better is if the battery was the entire size of the new cover and not just double. It would give 4-6x the battery life then, but probably cost an arm and a leg. As it is, this was well worth the money
Amazeing with one warning
A must have product only one warning i can give. leave your 3ds pluged into the charge cord while you switch out your battery. otherwise you will have to reset your system to fix the issue loseing power causes with street pass.
All Around Excellent
I swear it tripled my battery life. I play for a few hours every night and now I can go around 3 days without having to charge it. It's fantastic. Well worth the $30. The charging dock is really nice too. I know people are complaining that it makes the 3DS a little bigger and yes it does BUT it doesn't make it so big where it's uncomfortable. I can still fit my 3DS in all my soft cases without a problem. I actually like the improved grip from the bigger battery. If you own a 3DS it should be required that you buy this accessory. FANTASTIC!
Awesome Battery life but at a cost....
This was given to me as a Christmas gift and I say its worth your money. But there's a catch, its difficult to install into the back of your 3DS because of the screws being a bit fragile. It still gives me about 6 hours of gameplay so I don't have to keep bringing my charger everywhere I go and even with full brightness and full 3D it is still awesome! But luckily for me my uncle helped me with this and I was able to put it in. It's awesome though but... its not worth your money if your not good with screws. I recommend the other thing that in the reccomendations collem if your not good with screws. STILL IS AWESOME THOUGH!!! AND THE FIRST COMPANY TO MAKE A EXTERNAL BATTERY PACK NOT BAD NYKO!!! KEEP ON MAKING AWESOME STUFF!!!
Fantastic, but there is a better value
As you can read in my title, there is a better value, at least in my opinion. it's made by the same company, it's the same accessory, but instead of coming with the charging dock, it comes with just the battery for $9.99. I looked for it at GameStop, but couldn't find it, but i found it at Best Buy. I had enough for the $19.99 one, but I decided to just get the battery extender for half the price. I think it was worth saving 10 bucks to have to plug in my 3DS with the AC adapter rather than drop it in the dock. But it works incredibly well and easily doubles, if not triples my battery life! i get around 8-9 hours on full brightness with 3D on, and about 13-15 hours with full brightness and 3D off! it's phenomenal, and if you would prefer to pay the extra 10 bucks to get the charging dock, then go for it. I promise you won't be disappointed!
