    So I plan to buy a LE SMT4 3DS LL and swap it with parts for a 3ds xl with a banged up case and screen.everything functions on the XL, I just want to know if I swap out the screens, would there be any sort of power issue between the LL and XL?

    You could try to check the power using a voltmetre, maybe?

    I believe that internally (hardware-wise) the systems are identical. The volt-control is managed by the plug, that's why you can charge your PAL 3DS with an JAP charger if you either have the correct charger or a world plug for it. So yeah, it should work without problems.

    Even more so, US and Japan systems use the same power supplies (he has a US flag for his country so I assume his XL is US). The power grids in US and Japan are slightly different, but nearly all electronics for one are made such that they'll work on either.

    Didn't know this, interesting fact! So USA and Jap both are 110V~ then?

    3DS XL & LL are the same system so I don't see why not

    Yes XL is the western version of the LL, but I know different countries can use different power supplies. I'm sure I'll find a different way to break the consoles, but it would be really anticlimactic to fry them because of that.


    Exactly! So out of curiosity would this work if the XL was PAL? Would the voltages change?
