Works fine BUT,
This review is from: Nintendo Power Adapter (Nintendo 3DS) (Accessory)
This power adapter works fine. It is almost identical to my old 3DS plug, a grey plastic three pin plug with a grey cord that slots into your 3DS XL. WAIT a second, I think it is identical!! The only difference is my 3DS plug came free and I had to pay for this one on top of paying for my 3DS XL!! For THAT reason I cannot justify giving this plug 5 stars. So if Nintendo are listening please take note and don't make us pay extra for things that should come with the console. If this catches on soon they will start selling Iphones without chargers and flat screens without the mains. But nintendo PLEASE don't be mad at me because I have over the years spent thousands and thousands of pounds on all your consoles and games and I still love you (just about).

Great review, essentially does that mean you don't actually have to buy one of these if you already have one with your 3ds as it's the same??
Would be good to know!

Thanks for your comment. Yes the charger for the 3ds can be used for the 3ds xl! However, if like me you have traded in your 3ds and its charger to upgrade to this console then you are left having to fork out for the new charger.

I upgraded my 3ds for a 3ds XL in Game and not only did they offer a really good trade in price for it , They even gave me the charger for free :) It was a miracle that a high street shop like Game out did a online shop like Amazon. This just does not happen lol. Only annoying thing was i didn't know i would have to transfer my data over to retain my Ambassador title :(

Actually there were HUGE delays when I traded in my 3DS "Lost in transit" they said. Amazon sorted it out in the end which was good. But it took about 3 weeks for the whole thing to go through (when it is meant to take 6 days) Had to contact them about three times. So maybe I will try GAME next time. But do like the customer service of Amazon.

Oh that's not good at all. I remember when i had Pre-ordered my 3DS from Amazon. It was the best price and i had took a day off work so i could be in for the (Guaranteed) delivery. I waited the whole day and it was not until late in the evening i had got an email from Amazon saying it had been delayed. It did however came the next day and thankfully my wife was off work that day. Amazon did not charge for delivery as a result and apologised. I also ordered dead or alive for the 3DS and that also had got delayed (Game publishers decision , not Amazon) and again Amazon waited till after the date it was due to arrive to inform me :( Despite all this i have had a lot of good experiences with Amazon and they are easily cheaper and better than Game but it pays to look around inc High street shops. I am looking at getting a Wii U and again Game are offering a great deal if i was willing to trade my old ps3 in for it. I doubt i would do that though as i still play on it regular lol. Glad you got it all sorted in the end but 3 weeks wait i would of been fuming.

Taking a day off work to wait for your 3DS I can totally identity with that kind of "strange" behaviour :) I put alerts in my calendar to remind me that I have to order a certain game. I think the wii U looks amazing lots of fun but perhaps in the long run the Ps3 and 3ds xl may be better games wise. Either way hope you have fun!!!

Would this charger work with the dsi xl?
In reply to an earlier post on 6 Apr 2013 19:32:08 BDT
Yes, I believe the 3DS XL charger is compatible with the 3DS, 3DS XL, DSI and DSI XL - it isn't compatible with the older DS's such as the DS Lite.
