    I haven't seen any available yet, but I'd look at the battery in the 3DSL XL, then look at the DSI XL's battery. They may be similar, or even swappable.

    I have not checked my 3DSXL and DSiXL to confirm, but it seems somewhat logical.

    So, you have to completely take the 3DS XL apart to swap the battery?

    There is no battery door that I see like on other DS models.

    EDIT: NVM, I clikced on the link and see the entire back is the battery door. Wow, now I don't like how loose it is now that I inspected mine.

    ERROR!
    The UK Nintendo site doesn't sell them.

    I'm also interested if someone finds original spare batteries, I always want one just in case. Sweden isn't part of Club Nintendo so I can't get one that way.

    Following that link and then finding the one for regular 3DS on the same site, it appears they are not the same size. The 3DSXL battery appears to be physically longer than the regular 3DS battery.

    The DSiXL battery looks different still, much skinnier than the 3DSXL battery. The battery pages all say they won't work in any other system as well.
