So I got a link between worlds yesterday and got my 3DS that has been in it's case for a very long time (A couple months?). Anyway it wasn't charging properly (the charging light would go on for about 5 seconds and go off) then I realised the back of the 3ds is slightly popped out. I unscrewed the back and the battery has gotten big. So yeah I'm pretty certain the battery is f**ked and could explode if I do something stupid. I took the battery out and I wanted to try running the 3ds from the charger, but it doesn't work. In fact it does the exact same thing where the charging light would go on for about 5 seconds and turn off. Just wondering if you can actually run it off the charger, or if that's what it does when the battery is missing (or f**ked up in my scenario). Hoping that it can't run off the charger because that would probably mean my 3DS itself if f**ked as well. So yeah just wondering. If it can't run off the charger then I'm gonna have to get a replacement battery or if can run straight from the charger then i'm just gonna cry in a corner.
