    I saw the Power Pak+ and it looks really good. Does anyone know how long the battery life is with this.

    Also I haven't found any other place to order this besides Amazon, but they don't ship to Germany. Anywhere else that ship to Germany?

    I've got one. The battery is really good, it lasts a long time. I definitely recommend getting one.

    I don't know where you'd get one though, sorry.

    Hmm I actually thought those were a lot bigger so I never got one, the package makes it look like it would jut way out.

    I haven't found any in Germany. I ended up buying two from Amazon.com and sharing the costs with a friend.

    Really, so they ship to Germany? So what do you think? is it good? On the screens it looks small. How does it feel when playing?

    It's not small, it adds quite some size to the 3DS. For me the added size and weight makes the 3DS a lot more comfortable to hold, feels really nice.
    The added battery time is huge, I recently played SMT Devil Survivor Overclocked on my PP+-less US 3DS (my PP+ is on my EU 3DS) while in hospital and was going nuts because the battery was empty all the time, this doesn't come up with the Power Pak+ at all anymore.

    Edit: Oh and yes Amazon.com does ship it to my adress. "Sold by: Amazon Export Sales, Inc." The $15 Power Pak+ costs a total of 36,66€ with shipping and taxes though, so I'd recommend to pool some stuff before ordering something there.

    So how much height does the 3DS actually gain on the bottom with this? On the photos it looks like 0.5 cm.

    Yes, 0.5cm is about right.

    i love this battery pack. it gives more grip if you have bigger hands. and battery lasts a looong time, lot longer than the normal battery, i would recommend it. although there is a con about this. i dont think it will fit with the new slider extension, so if you plan on getting that, i think it will be tidious changing the battery packs just to use that extra slider
