    Anyone have a picture of the top of the DSi where the charger port will be? I'd like to know if I can use my DS Lite charger with it. I really want to get this as soon as it comes out (in Japan). BTW I live in the US if it matters. Thanks to anyone that can help.

    Also, are there any cons to importing other than the higher price? I'd really like to know. Thanks again.

    Well, there might be problems with the DSware stuff, and other downloadable stuff, no one knows yet.

    Huh, I didn't even think about that. But still, are there any pictures of the top of the DSi?

    Looks like he's right...

    Looks like a USB-B port? Interesting. If it is, perhaps you could charge it via USB? Would make importers happy.

    Can anyone confirm if it is a USB port or not? That would be cool.

    It looks 12% bigger then smaller to me. (The side hangs off over the DSL.) And I don't think its a USB port.

    I think it is supposed to be 12 percent lighter, not smaller.

    Besides, the 2 DS's aren't positioned exactly alike in that picture.

    Does the DSi charging port look similar, or identical to the GBA's EXT port?

    Looks nothing like a USB-B port Shaun [​IMG] USB-B ports would be much bigger -- the port on the DSi isn't 'tall' enough to be USB, so it's most like proprietary.

    I dont think so. I believe the DSi has a different battery since it has bigger screens and more onboard RAM, SD card, camera etc. Thus it will have a bigger battery than the DS lite. So why would the DS lite Charger work on a DSi.
