    ok amazon says april 30th is the release for this bad boy BUT since i work at best buy i get to know shit a lot faster. SO CHECK your best buy if you have one around you. Before i got the battery i played till the battery died about 20 times and it died around the same time everytime which was roughly 2 hours and idk around 20 mins. Now i dont know if the new battery gives double the battery life but it does allow for a lot longer than i would normally play a console for which is ideal for me. My best buy discount was amazing i got the 29.99USD battery+charging station for 18.87 thats including the tax. =D JUST BE CAREFUL not to use the mini screwdriver they supply cause it sucks ass and i striped a screw to a full circle and had to drill it out of my ds which turned into a bigger hole which i put super hard epoxy in and then made a new screw slot XD. RECOMMENDED.

    Yup, I saw that they were available on Best Buy' site for delivery to my store. I printed up the pages to double check with someone there, walked over to the 3DS stuff and saw it actually had a spot there already, so I'm thinking this weekend after I get payed I'ma be taking another trip to Best Buy and getting one myself.

    i know i may be overreacting a bit but batterylife is a must have for me and the more i can get im down (minus those stupid power braclets) and another thing i didnt say is that the expansion of the bottom is very nice for people with bigger hands or long fingers or even people that have bad hands. it feels *more* natural i guess? lets just say it feels a lot better and i didnt think id like it so much. and the charging docks lights are pretty cool.

    Power Button = Blue when on
    Charing Lights = Red when charging and an illuminating Green when fully charged. it looks great.

    I like the kit. Gives great battery life [​IMG] The only thing I don't like is that my natural skin oils seem to make the battery cause a small smell to happen, on my fingers that hold on to the back of the 3ds, and not my thumbs cause they are hitting the buttons and don't hold the battery. Its not sweat cause I don't sweat on my fingers while playing games, but I do easily leave finger prints cause of my skin oils.

    I got this as well. I just wish the battery was less slidey. Maybe a bit rougher to the touch. Makes the entire thing nicer to hold after being so used to the XL.

    Picked up the battery and charger pack at EB/GS last Thursday. Love that little battery pack. I've played maybe a total of 2 hours (been busy) and the battery pack just ticket down one bar. The rubberized bottom makes it easier for me to hold as well. Almost wish it was a bit thicker as my hands are used to the XL (very large hands). Talked a friend of mine into getting it. He hasn't installed it yet, but I'm sure he will love it as well.

    I have a long car trip in about a month and a plane ride across the country this summer, I'm looking forward to how well this battery hold up for those trips. [​IMG]

    When you get back, post how it went. I'm going to Anime Boston this weekend and I'm hoping the battery will last me to the end of the con.
