    Nyko will be releasing an accessory to replace the batter and cover with this extended pack.
    It shall last twice as long and uses the plug in charger but not the dock. The dock does not
    work due to added bulk so they offer the option to buy a dock charger for it. It will be released
    launch day without the dock in the picture for $19 and a week later with that dock for $29. Who will buy this?

    I don't care if that made the battery last forever. I would never use that thing.

    I'd like to see how this thing looks in a 3ds, is the thing on the bottom a dock, cause if your supposed to put a 3ds in that, it looks like it would be pretty uncomfortable to play with

    it works like the wii remote batteries
    the thing on the bottom is the dock
    the other thing is the pack which replaces the cover on the back on the unit
    it just adds bulk
    the pack makes the 3ds too big for the dock so that dock allows to charge with the battery in the 3ds

    Isn't the point of a portable to be... you know... portable?

    If it doesn't fit in my pocket, I'm not getting it (and by the looks of it, it would make the thing far too bulky).

    I'd rather bring a screwdriver and replacement battery. Or the charging cord (assuming I go somewhere with an outlet)

    it only makes the device 2 cm thicker

    that'll still fit

    only the thing on the top part goes on the 3ds
    the other thing is the dock

    That's a lot when the original size is only about an inch thick. [​IMG]

    no not even one inch
    more like .8 inch
    and its not even 2 cm more
    i just guessed
    but it must be more like 1.5 cm

    if you look, it is not thick at all

    Thanks for the pic, OmerMe.
    That looks quite stylish and streamlined.
    I'll certainly consider buying one if the standard battery life doesn't meet my needs.

    It will make my 3DS look like a DS phat so I don't like it.

    Ok, it does not look too bad. Now my next question would be , Are they telling the truth about the Mah? I am a little cautious about such upgrades. I have had quite a few duds with PSP 3RD party batteries. [​IMG]

    It sounds great, but I'll wait for reviews before I buy it.
