    Ok so Ive bought a DS Lite from someone in the US
    I have a plug converter but it wont charge, now the reading on the bottem of the DS Lite are very hard to read so I cant actually see what the powerrates are.

    Are they the same? Do I need to buy a new charger from Europe or do I need to buy a power converter?

    Allthe ds lites from the world are the same (except for china), so the charger is the same
    So you can buy any charger for it

    well if it flash orange than nothing it could be that the battery is full no? And i confirm a battery charger from europe will work with your ds, i have a ds (bought in canada) i went to france and bought a charger for it and no problems at all.

    If it's full, there is no light. You can always get a USB charging cable and plug it into your PC.
