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. ).

Nintendo charging $13.99 for a USB charger when you can just get one for $3.82 from amazon right now.
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.

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.

got a .79 cents cable for my 3ds that bought on ebay, and using a 2amp av adapter, got almost 2 years with it, 0 issues.

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.
