    I just bought a used DSi XL, but no charger. I see a few cheap DSi chargers in ebay, but description doesn't say whether they work on the DSi XL. Anyone know if it'll work? Thanks.

    We can't see if they are DSi XL compatible if we can't see them at all.
    Could you please provide a link?

    Edit:
    I've Googled whether the DSi charger works with the DSiXL, where 2 results came positive, and 1 negative (but that was Yahoo Answers baseless crap). You can order the DSi one, but I wouldn't recommend eBay.

    Note that for that USB-charging cable you'll need a charger with USB input.
    Here's an example of one of these adapters. It's a Dutch shop, but it'll give you an idea of what kind of thing I'm talking about.
    Edit:
    Oh, I misread your post a bit.
    If you want to charge it from an electrical plug-in thing (I'm sorry, I don't know what they are called in English), you need what I said above.

    Ok, great! I have that A/C adapter with USB ports as well. So that USB cable for the DSi will work for the DSi XL as well, I assume? Thanks!!!

    EDIT: I don't mind "Chinese fakes" as long as it works.

    NO! Chinese fakes can EXPLODE easily!

    As I said, the DSi and the DSiXL use the same charging plugs/wires.
