    Hey guys this is Swatkinz, a.k.a. General Swatkinz I was the head project leader for the Custom Songs for GHOT, that project has not gone far lately, but I have something else thats great, a video on how to make your own NDS USB charger! Its easy, handy to have and looks great.

    Works like a charm, using the 5v from a USB port, running it through a cable and converting the one end to the DS charging jack makes for a prefect charger for on the go! Enjoy

    That's nothing new if you're quite good at electronics... [​IMG]
    But I'd rather buy one, that saves working on it myself. And then... I can't see what's the big deal about it. If you caryy your laptop around somewhere you probably won't waste its energy to charge your DS. (And if you would I'd still suggest using a power or energy grip)
    At least you wouldn't need to carry around your Lappy to have some extra energy or an emergency charger. ^^

    I still prefere the wall plus my grip. It triples playing time for me. (Backlight and sound on maximum always... ^^)

    You can buy a USB cable that has 5 outputs for ~$3 from DX. Probably better to get that :/

    Will USB chargers automatically switch off the charge once it's full?

    Why shouldn't they do that? Oo Off course they do... Unless you do not switch your DS on while having it connected to the cable... ^^

    Initially I thought the circuit that detects the battery charge was on the DS charger itself, which I was afraid it would overcharge my DS. But if the DS is able to detect the full charge and shut itself off then I might be making or buying one [​IMG]

    Lithium ion batteries don't overcharge. Problem solved.
