    Was just playing with my n3DSXL and battery was 3 out of 4 bars. 10 minutes later it's zero bars with low battery warning.
    The only different thing I did today was use a new USB charging cable I got on amazon (5 star reviews mostly) that plugs into my 60W 6port Anker USB charger that I use to charge all my phone's and tablets. It has smart IQ tech which gives correct voltage.
    Anyone had this problem before? Did I kill my batter lol?

    Have you tested out any other batteries to see if your battery isn't at fault?

    This used to happen to me quite a bit. For me, it turned out the battery wasn't making proper contact (I assume I dropped the system off my bed or shook it around too much or something). After I popped the battery out and back in, it fixed things right up.
