    Nintendo did tell us to leave the 3DS unit charging in the cradle when not in use, right? (Pretty much charge it whenever you're not playing)
    I searched in google, but with no such luck, mostly getting info about charger kits >.<

    Thanks for any help!

    I'm sure in the manual it said something along the lines of everyday charging.

    It's no harm anyway to leave it in the cradle.

    Ah, thanks. Guess I missed it in the manual if it does state it there. >.

    People say it will hurt the battery life, but if the 3ds is in standby at all times then its always using power. So if its on the dock then it will just draw power from the dock for standby and leave the battery at max.

    With most devices, constantly draining then re-charging the battery will have adverse effects on the battery. Charging often is supposedly better, but I just want to be sure... I'm always a bit too careful with new technology.
