i saw this charging grip from dobe

http://www.dobe-game.com/en/productshow-62-155.html

is it worth getting? safe to use?
I use this grip if I'm away from home. I have not had problems with it since I got it in ?2018. It's significantly cheaper than the Monster Hunter grips that have the firmer shoulder buttons and kickstand, but this Dobe one also has a battery, so I'd definitely say it's worth getting.

i would get that monster hunter one but the only one i see is on ebay and its really expensive

how are the shoulder buttons? do they press by themselves?
is charging with it safe? it seems to charge from not the port of the 3ds

L and R have tabs that press directly on the buttons. ZL and ZR have a longer lever to shift the buttons to below L&R rather than further in from the side. This means the new buttons depress a little way before the click happens. But there is still a noticeable click when the button registers. They don't press by themselves.

The charging happens with spring-loaded pins that press on the metal contacts on the top of the console either side of the charging port. These contacts are there for use with a charging dock so it is easy to insert the console without lining up a plug. It should be safe to charge using them. The only disadvantage is that the pins rub on the contacts a bit when you insert or remove the console so you can see that I've been using the charging contacts. No idea how bad this looks compared to the wear caused by an official charging dock.
