    For $24.99 users can install a USB rechargable 1800mAH battery pack into their 3DS that will almost double the time between charges.

    I might want to look into this, I had a 14 hour plane ride and my battery died 5 hours in, leaving me to die.

    I hate the block thing at the back.
    Looks just as if I were to keep an Action Replay DS into my DS at all times.

    Looks pretty nice. The big block thing is pretty big, and my 3DS wouldn't fit in my case with it on, but I might consider getting one.

    It looks the same size, if not smaller. Don't be full by the block in the back. [​IMG]

    It's a shame people have to use this monstrosity in order to make their 'take anywhere' handheld able to be taken anywhere for longer than 4 hours. I'm not sure if my 3DS even gets that.

    At first glance, I would recommend the Nyko Power Pak Plus. It is $20 for just the battery, or $30 for an included charging stand.
    It doubles the battery life, and is still very portable.

    So does GBATemp get paid to plug products like this now?

    What makes you say that?
    Everyone complains about the 3DS battery life and this is one of the solutions to make 3DS run longer.

    Why would anyone choose this over the power pack +?

    When I bought my power pack +, I was afraid it would make my blue 3DS hideous, but in real life it doesnt look bad at all, and in my opinion, it makes the 3DS feel much better in your hand. This however, looks aweful. It sticks out fad too much in the back, and it also sticks out a bit on the sides. At least Nyko's solution just makes the 3DS slightly thicker. I really can't find any reason to choose this over the power pack +.

    2 words. USB. Recharge. If your a person like me who carries their laptop everywhere and forgets his 3DS charger then you will love this.
