thanks to the earlier reviewers for ensuring that I got this,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nintendo Power Adapter (Nintendo 3DS) (Accessory)
It's great when other reviewers save later buyers from missing out on essentials like this when buying a new console.
Yes, it is daft that the adapter isn't included with the console but thank you to all the earlier reviewers for sharing your knowledge and enabling others to avoid the same problem!
