    In about 10 days my nintendo ds lite should arrive.

    To prepare myself, I've bought a couple of game, am going to order a ds two supercard and a microsd card (16gb I think).

    However... I would like to know are there any must have accessories or addons that a ds lite owner should get?
    Which are just awesome or make console stronger or better or... well you know [​IMG]

    So please post any information regarding this matter!

    Apart from a good flashcart (which you seem to have covered quite nicely) I would recommend a carrying case to protect your investment, and a pack of extendable styluses.

    A Supercard DSTwo and maybe an Action Replay DSi, that about take cares of that.

    You need Hori screen protectors if you don't want to have scratched screen.

    It's always nice to have a carry case like vulpus said. It might be non-sensical to most people because they tend to take care of your ds. However, with a carry case you do have lot of stuff at hand in one nice spot. And if you happen to drop it, your ds will be spared.

    I'd also buy a little value pack with styli and cartridge cases. They go around for 7 bucks or so, but an extra stylus is always handy and your cartridges will be protected well. You will keep them protected without lugging the original box around which saves a whole lot of space.

    Lastly, you might also want to look into screen protectors. I once had some, but they got bubbles into it, so I removed them quickly. However, my ds has got some very nasty scratches (read holes) into the touch screen after some years, so it's advisable that you buy some if you want to keep your ds in a good condition.

    Flip & Play case.

    I bought one of those as the second accessory for the handheld and didn't part with it ever since. Great protection of surfaces, it's soft so it'll protect your console from falls aswell, it "feels" great, it has a slot for a second stylus, the design is high-quality and there are various designs and colours to choose from. Highly recommended for the Lite, good job Big Ben!

    Hmm... so hori screen protectors are a most. Here we go again, where on earth would one order them in europe?

    I came up with ebay... and their official website only listed US retailers.

    Btw, people thank you for the very informative feedback. I got to say, internet and people who care to share their windom are just fking awesome.

    I found them on amazon, here's one for the dslite: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hori-Official-Prot...4770&sr=1-4

    little note: at the bottom you can change the region for amazon, I set it to UK in this case, due to you living in Europe.

    I honestly believe that an Acekard 2i + EZ 3in1 is a much better deal for him than a DS Two, since he's buying a DS Lite from what I gathered. More RAM = More Homebrew + he'd be able to use the Browser.

    I do believe that native GBA support is a better snack, but that's just my personal opinion. Besides, wasn't there a SNES emulator that used the bonus RAM aswell? I'm quite sure there was one...

    I don't know if that Snes emu is better but as for GBA support, I do recommend the EZ 3-in-1
