    I'm off to Florida in a few weeks, and my daughter really wants a pink nds lite, and what with the exchange rate being what it is at the moment, I was thinking of buying one out there. Will there be any problems charging it? Should I get a USB charger? And it is region-free isn't it?

    Cheers

    There is no region protection on the nds so the games will work without problem. To charge it, you can get a USB charger or an adapter to use with your actual charger.

    The DS is region free and you'll have to get a 2-pin to 3-pin adapter.

    As others have said here, the only problem is with the charger.
    You can either buy a UK charger or get a step down converter (220V to 110V) and use the US charger you get in the package.
    A step down converter should be cheaper but make sure you don't confuse it with a (very cheap) power plug adapter.
