    You want an Acekard 2. Acekard 2i is a possibility, but you only need that if you have an DSi, and there's no guarantee that it will work on the USA version, or on any version after a firmware update. If your sister has a DS or DS Lite and nobody has plans to get her a DSi any time soon, the Acekard 2 is definitely what you're after.

    Just saying, if you're not an AK noob, you would know...

    There's reviews for a reason.

    My vote goes for Acekard 2i, simply because they shipped it faster than other products I've ordered from Deal Extreme. Shipping is like...free? Plus, get a few (like 3 SEPERATELY ordered for fast shipping) so you'll almost be assured to receive a working one. Not to mention you can keep one to your own pleasure afterwards if they all work!

    Not gonna force you to make a choice, but there are only 2 AceKards out there.

    The AceKard 2.1 and AceKard 2i.

    There are three main differences between the two.

    AceKard 2.1 is:
    - Cheaper
    - Compatible with DS Phat and DS Lite

    AceKard 2i is:
    - More Expensive then AceKard 2.1
    - Compatible with DS Phat, DS Lite and DSi
    - Has a random chip on the front under the sticker (from what I remember. Not too sure though...)

    Where to buy:
    DealExtreme

    Direct Links:
    AceKard 2i for $18.68
    AceKard 2.1 for $11.22

    Also everything from DealExtreme has free shipping...

    *Note that all prices are in USD currency aka United States Dollar

    based on what i've heard 1st hand about the ak2i i would stick with the ak2.1 unless she has a dsi. the 2i seems to fail in many regards.
