I can't fault the charger, and as everyone knows don't buy third party chargers from dubious sources!
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.

A few days ago I purchased a Nintendo 3DS XL from Amazon for my wife's birthday to replace her ageing, battered old DS Lite. She was very pleased with it, but after using it for a few hours it needed re-charging and it was then that I realised Nintendo hadn't included a charger. I don't know why it didn't occur to me earlier, when she was unwrapping it.

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.

I was disapointed at Christmas to recieve a Nintendo 3DS Xl to find that it didn't come with a charger! How annoying. So yeah this charger works a dream, just a shame it didn't come with the console in the first place!

Terrible product, just arrived. Packaging in mint condition which I find suspicious as the actual product looks like it's been mawled by an animal. Can't use due to danger of exposed wiring and is intended for a 5 year old for use with DS! Also I paid £12.99 in total with next day delivery what an absolute waste of money.

This AC adapter is a necessity for anyone who has purchased the Nintendo 3DS XL - Yoshi Edition which does not come with a charger. I have a more up-to-date version which is also compatible with the "New" 3DS-XL but it is not listed here on Amazon. There are cheaper generic alternatives but I don't feel safe unless it's a legit Nintendo product that I'm plugging into my DS so this one (and its successor) is the only way to go.

Does what it says on the case, my only dissapointment is you don't get one supplied with the console, surely Nintendo have earn't enough profit!

No faults - works just as well as the one that came with my 3ds. All you do is plug it in to the back or plug it into the cradle.

These get lost easily especially when going on holiday or when staying at relatives' houses etc. Yes - the licensed product is well made, but at 12-15 quid a pop it is not great value: especially as Nintendo does not bother bundling one with the console. I shopped around and found the best deal was the no-name version at Argos which is around £7 at the time of writing (April 2016) - the Argos one looks well made and safe (as opposed to some of the stuff that you can get on ebay) and I have no worries in using it as a substitute for this - so save your money.
