    The popular e-commerce site MightyApe New Zealand has entered in advance of its next catalog a charger with a USB cable directly produced by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS console family.

    The charger consists of a wall outlet and a separate wire, connected to the USB socket at one end and the Nintendo 3DS at the other end. Unfortunately there aren't any available official images yet.

    The date of release of the new charger, according to the site MightyApe, is the 30th of September and it will be available at a price of $13.99 ( €12.35 ca. ).

    Not sure I would trust a $3.82 USB charger, cheap chargers tend to have some very sketchy internals (devoid of most or all safety components, lacking proper separation between AC and DC that could in a worst case scenario short and cause your 3DS and/or charger to catch on fire)

    +1. I'd rather get a first party charger and make sure it works rather than get one that might have a few bypasses in it that could put not only my device but my home at risk, especially if it catches fire.

    Isnt it dumb that we have to buy the charger separatly?.. they should sell the charger WITH the console..i mean, might aswell sell the console's screws separatly too..

    The new mini NES must use the same cord as the 3DS. That's good!

    Now let's hope all their products start using one unified cord...

    Nintendo have teach us to have hope.. their new slogan should be ''Nintendo will nake you dream.. we give you hope!"

    But in all seriousness, indeed it would be nice if they start using the same cable for all to come.

    $13???? What a rip.
    Cut the tip off of your official one, use 3 peices of heatshrink with a little solder and a spare usb cable.

    Watch them not include a power cord with the mini NES and expect people to use their 3DS charger instead :P

    The cable doesn't matter so much, the important part is the AC adapter itself.

    It only took Nintendo five years to finally release a USB charging cable. Wow.

    I overpaid for my Energizer branded DSLite/3DS dual-head USB charger, but it's a wall charger that converts to a car charger, which is pretty badass, and there's quality to it. I feel those features are justified in the price I paid.

    Lol. Too bad I already bought an unofficial one. (This is what happens when you travel a lot and would rather have an usb cable + a battery pack.)
