    Hello everybody, I just wanted to share something that I created and it's being really useful to me.

    Idk about you all but I really hate to carry a lot of cables or chargers just to be able to charge my stuff like smartphone, tablets, portable games and so on. Thinking about that I decided to make an power cable adapter to my 3DS XL which is the 3DS male connector(which idk the right name) and the micro usb female connector. So the idea is to have a single adapter which will let you charge your 3DS with any micro usb cable. Another idea is to "recycle" all the material that you will need in this tutorial in case you have them.


    Stuff that you will need



    Making the whole process

    This should also work for a DSi, right?
    (otherwise it should be moved to the 3DS section)

    I'm not sure about the DSI connector if is the same as the 3DS but the tutorial can work for anyone that is trying to make an adapter for the portable Nintendo console.

    Tbh i didn't see i was in the ds section.... I will see how I can move it

    Well, they use the exact same charger port, so it should work.

    in yo mind
    They should have just used micro USB (or mini USB like the Wii U Pro controller) in it in the first place or at least required a proper 5V source. It requires 4.6v but will tolerate 5V fine.

    Maybe they didn't want people using generic cheap micro USB chargers which would fry the 3DS?

    Anyways, cool adapter.

    I think Nintendo did it that way because it use the same charger as the DSi, and when the 3DS launched the DSi was still living, and that could mean we could use the same charger for more devices, making it more cost effective than creating a new propietary charger and as you said, avoiding any fried 3DS motherboards by using cheap mini/micro/whatever USB chargers.

    Though with the NX, they finally switched to USB.
