I ripped out the proprietary charging plug, which serves no other purpose than to tether me to the stock Nintendo hardware, and replaced it with a mini USB socket! Now my DSL is capable of going toe-to-toe with the PSP, and I can charge it from my PC, or from my moto's car phone charger, without the need for a special cable... tee hee! Incidentally, I did this same thing to my GB Micro! (Which also has a proprietary power plug, except that now I can't ever link it with another GBA...using the proprietary cable for THAT feature which I ALSO didn't have anyways, so screw it.) USB CHARGING FOR ALL!!!!
