    Seems way too huge for the sexy DSL. An "emergency charger" + a couple pairs of rechargable batteries would seem to be a better alternative in my opinion

    I'm thinking it would be good for long car trip/movie marathons.

    There was a wind to charge the DS too I think, or maybe using two AA Batterys connceted to the charger plug ?

    That is a very big battery pack [​IMG]

    But hey, 30 hours is not a bad deal especially in long air travels and road trips.

    Would only get this for maybe long plane journeys or if I go somewhere where theres no electricity e.g. camping. Otherwise I'd just get the car charger...

    Seems a bit... bulky? I would think it would add more weight to the NDS :wtf:

    That's from a while back. The payoff is so mediocre for some.

    You know, these Chinese battery packs never do what they advertise.

    Yeah, never trust Chinese crap.

    The battery on the DS Lite is just fine...it's not like it a PSP.

    At first, I thought that white block was the charger... then I realised you have to snap it onto the DS. Is there any batteries out that that's got a slightly higher capacity than the one that comes with the DS and also can fit into the battery compartment. Recently, I found myself recharging the battery every 2 days.

    I second that.

    They say 30 hours, since it's a Chinese battery it's probably 20-25 hours, and with a flash kit, that also gets reduced.

    Bah, not worth it.
