I use this cable for a device charging station in my home where I charge my tablet, phone, and other devices. The standard 3DS charger is too large to fit onto the outlet without blocking other plugs. With this cable, I can use my standard AC to USB adapter to charge my 3DS, saving space and allowing me to use all of my outlets!
Nothing pumps me up more first thing in the morning, then various cables that I use for charging devices. These are great at moving electrons from point A to point B. The wires are very wirey and the ports are portable if not a bit portly but they still fit. These are great.
These chargers do exactly as advertised: charge your DS. Being a dying breed, I'm glad these cables are still sold and as a 2-pack no less! These arrived individually wrapped in a plastic foil tied together nice and tight, then both are inside of a resealable plastic pouch. The USB is super useful since it plugs into everything and I'm no longer restricted to needing a wall outlet!
I cannot say much to the life expectancy of these since I've only had them about a week but they feel durable and I doubt the section going into the DS will break apart.
A solid charger for a Nintendo DS, I used it on a Nintendo 3ds (no XL, no new) and it worked fine. I would guess that it charges slower than the classic charger because its using USB, but I have no way of checking it.
From dead to full it took no more than an hour from a typically wall outlet converter.
Its cheep and you get 2, I would highly recommend.
I purchased 2 AC (wall) chargers for my son's Nintendo 3DS. They both stopped working after a short time. These cables work well and are more convenient because with the USB we can take them in the car or use any USB AC adapter to charge it. Would definitely recommend in lieu of the wall charger!
I was so thankful to find these charging cords at an affordable price in 2021! I like that the charging cables plug into a USB port to charge rather than plugging directly into an outlet like the traditional 3DS charger. It's much easier for me to toss a cord into my bag and always have it handy instead of having to keep up with the original charger and taking it along with me from place to place. I am very pleased with this purchase and would buy from this vendor again in the future.
Used it for several days now and no problems, not sure how it works in the long run. But so far it acts just like a normal DS charger and works perfectly, without the massive wall plug that comes attached to the official DS chargers.
