They may explode, overheat or worse, not work from day one and destroy the device you are charging. I have already been on the receiving end of a fake camera battery.
My main gripe is that I had to buy this as an accessory for my daughters new 3DS XL, and that it didn't come supplied with one. Yes the box contained a cable that you could use to charge the device from a USB port BUT this can take ages.
My wife passed on her impatient gene on to my daughter, so for a quiet life I bought this.
It is absolutely appalling that Nintendo are pulling this con-trick! After all, once the 3DS battery has run down there is no way of charging it without this charger. It wouldn't be so bad if it was possible to charge it from a computer using a usb cable, but no, this is a blatant scam by Nintendo to get more money from their customers.
I've given the charger 5 stars as it does do what it should and the service from Amazon was excellent as usual, but I completely disagree with the way in which Nintendo are selling their hand held consoles without chargers and I hope they get lots of stick for it.
It takes about 2-3h to charge the 3DS XL from critical to full.
It loses 2 stars for the versatility, practicality and for not being eco-friendly. What I mean by this is that it is not interchangeable with say you mobile phone charger so basically you need to carry around at least 2 separate chargers while there is no reason in the world why you couldn't go with 1, this also causes more waste as you can't reuse a standard charger everyone already has at home.
It is also quite bulky compared to phone chargers which are more powerful.
There really should be no need for this item, I see no reason in the world why the DS devices couldn't use the standard micro/mini usb ports and standard chargers and I see this item as an attempt by Nintendo to squeeze some more cash from its users masked as an attempt to be eco-friendly, in the sense that you don't end up with 4 chargers if you buy a new console every year but if they really wanted to be eco-friendly they could have just put a micro usb port on the device to start with.

Works perfectly, cheapest place I found these (although Nintendo were giving them free with console purchases before Christmas).Published 3 hours ago by lauramc
I bought this as the 3DS XL I purchased did not come with a charger.

It's frustrating that an adapter didn't come with the 3DS, lack of research meant this was an unexpected expense but it does what you would expect.Published 2 days ago by babyboysmommy
