    A thread for a summery of all Batteries Expansion for 3DS

    Nyko Power + Grip

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Battery Life:
    MAX EVERYTHING: six hours and 34 minutes
    LOWEST BRIGHTNESS, 3D ON, WI-FI OFF, VOLUME OFF, POWER SAVING ON: 14 hours

    A add-on power Grip, you can take it off and on without removing the original 3DS battery.

    3DS Power Pak +

    A solution that will make your 3DS 0.5 cm thicker, permanently.

    3D on, brightness maximum, wireless on:
    Nyko Power Pak +: 5:33
    3DS battery: 2:52

    3D off, brightness at minimum, Power-Saving on, wireless off:
    Nyko Power Pak +: 9:04*
    3DS battery: 4:40

    Much like the Power Pack +. But lasts about 4.5 times more then the orignal 3ds battery. Oh ye, its only 99 dollars.


    3D on, brightness maximum, wireless on:
    About 11 hours 10 min (mathematical estimation)

    3D off, brightness at minimum, Power-Saving on, wireless off:
    About 19.6 hours 36 min (mathematical estimation)

    That power grip looks wonderful. I have big hands so it will make it easier to hold.
    And that battery life with everything maxed (pointless, but whatever) is pretty good. I don't even think my ds lite goes for six hours anymore.

    We have the PowerPak+ and it works very well..

    The only problem we have found is the size increase keeps us from buying/using existing DSL/i/3DS accessories, like cases..
    We purchased a hard pokemon case, but the lid wouldn't close with the battery pak on..

    Not sure if a Nerf case would fit, either..

    only problem about this is that you can't use it with the extra circle pad, which sucks as I bouth the nyko power pak [well got it for free form best buy :P] hopefully they can release there own cirlce pad that fits with the power pak but I doubt it as nintendo probably copyrighted the circle pad so only there version exists

    ^ That's why I'm going to buy the grip, it's easily removed so if I need the circle pad I can just pop the 3ds out of the grip in a second.

    Dunno about anyone else here, but if a company released something like a circle pad pro with an integrated battery expansion, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Added a new entry in the first post.

    A question though.. do batteries brought in the U.S work in PAL 3DS?

    I'm so jealous of anyone who has the extra cash to buy that thing.

    Does anyone know of a case for the 3ds that works with the power pak+? I ended up getting that one instead of the grip.

    The nyko sounds great and is really affordable too and best of all its the most efficient to use because it can be popped on and off. I must have...

    Yea the Nyko probably is the best option, the other seems kinda clunkier than the Nyko.

    The thing is its not really nyko its Pega. There isnt much of a choice on amazon.co.uk Cant really find a review of it, nor how much do they last.

    Edit: Found out that the pega one "provides almost double the capacity of the stock battery"

    I really, really would love to get a battery expansion. But I also really don't want the extra thickness/weight.
    Ah well, by the time I can actually afford an expansion, there might be something new out.

    Subsonic xtra battery pack is not so big and could be use as a charger, you could remove it once 3DS is charged. And it seems we could charge 3DS at least twice.
