    I'm guessing you live in the US. You may have to search at the usual B&M stores. Toys 'R' Us , Target, Walmart, Gamestop. I don't think this should have ever been a new topic.

    Hmmm a totally legit question...after all some members here work in those kinda stores, and it could therefore save a lot of legwork/Telephone calls/Googling. [​IMG]

    Time that could be better spent playing the new games coming out! [​IMG]

    Anyway I got no advice about the topic, so i'll just keep quiet. [​IMG]

    I'd also would like to tack on an additional question to the original one. Other than the official Nintendo ones what is a decent third party brand. I've only heard bad things about them.

    after my bad experience with third party battery i buy mine from Nintendo.com

    Lites
    http://www.nintendo.com/accessoriesds#ds-lite-accessories

    Phatties
    http://www.nintendo.com/accessoriesds#ds-accessories

    their 15 bucks + shipping kinda on the high side but i personally think OEM battery is great


    oh i did buy about 4 third party 1600mah battery to test out, all 4 were worthless
    3 lasted 1/4 the original ds battery time if not less
    1 was a complete dud, didnt accept charges
    (ones i tried werent dragon brand so dont know about those)

    best thing i have to show from it is 4 mini screw drivers rolling around my table somewhere, now their great for ds and other things

    *Edit*
    Opps not online... hmm try gamestop or local videogame store, or buy it in asia
    btw Nintendo ships 1-2 day after order via UPS, also they usually ship from washington state for me so its pretty fast, they also offer faster shipping method for more $

    Where are you going to, in Asia? Depending on where you are, you might have a better chance getting a battery cheaper.
