    Hi there.

    I was just thinking of the "High capacity(HC)" battery I ordered from Nintendo for my WiiU Gamepad. This would be great for my N3DS. Not that the batterylife is poor. But more wouldn't hurt.

    I don't think Nintendo makes an original HC battery for the 3DS. One of the reasons might be weight or even more, space limitations.
    So if I can't have a larger battery in my N3DS XL without making it more bulky, are there any, in lack of a better word, external chargers? If so, I could order a spare original battery, and charge the one while the other one is in use.

    Thanks for any input :)

    I am really pleased with "Mugen Power Extended Batteries"

    I have two of them, one for 3DS XL and another for N3DS XL, drawback on N3DS you basically loose (easy / hassle free) access to the microsd.

    Edit: Well, on N3DS its already by design a pita to access the msd...
    Edit2: Oh, i have overread "more bulky" but for me it just feels better with the bigger housing and i don´t want to miss it.

    Without making it more bulky? No.
    That's physically impossible without any major breakthroughs in battery-technology.
    The Mugen ones are propably okay, but their price is absolutely unreasonable.
    91usd for a battery? Hell no.

    Don´t want to start a discussion here and i get your point on the price tag.
    Just let me say that you can play like nearly full-time every day up to one week without recharging - which is really nice.
    But this is not what the thread starter is looking for, so, over and out.
