    I ordered it from Amazon.com, and I like the feel of it, but when I turn it on, it causes my 3DS to flicker like crazy. It's supposed to double the battery life. Am I only supposed to turn it on when my battery is about to die? Whenever I place my 3DS on the stock charging cradle, I noticed it makes the screen a little brighter, so why does the power grip make it flicker?

    set your brightness to "3". Your pulling to many amps. My battery pack does the same when the brightness is set to high.

    3 is too dark for me. Anyway why would it pull more amps than if it were on the charging dock?

    because your wall charger pushes more power than those batteries.
