    Good afternoon all! I was wondering if you could help me.

    I'm trying to find a replacement Power socket for a New 2DS XL i have sat on my bench, and i seem to be having issues finding one.

    I've seen a few listings online for the part and they SAY its compatible with the 2DS XL, but the image they show is not the right part.

    So if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it!

    2DS XL is the same one for DSi/DSi XL

    Hey Shadow! thanks for chiming in.

    I did read that, and ordered one, but the footprint is completely different sadly.

    Thanks TurdPooCharger, i did see those, but they are also the wrong footprint.there is a tab on the underside of the connector that gets soldered into the pcb.

    No lucky on my end finding that exact n2DSXL power port on Aliexpress. It seems like ep-game-supply is/was the only vendor of that part. Looks like they delisted a lot of their inventory due to slow sales downgradetime.
    You may have to resort to clever retrofitting and modifying the NDSi / 2DS charger port by clipping the two front prongs and adding a plastic insert (think shaved/sanded LEGO flat piece) to level the connector.
