    in modern batteries, it shouldn't be a problem. unless the 3ds is wired to charge till its full, then let the battery take over till 95% before beginning to charge again like some laptop chargers do. that might whittle down on number of charges and such.

    but really, I've been playing with and without charger a lot and my 4 year old 3ds xl battery still holds at least 90 minutes of charge. thats much better than my psp did

    If something goes wrong you can buy a replacement battery.
