Cheap USB cable

Pros: Cheap well made USB cable

Cons: Dock does not work with 3DS XL or my new 3DS XL

Well made USB cable for cheap, I just wish it was offered by itself without the dock or had a dock to fit the XL's

It works- sort of

Pros: Holds 3ds securely. Charges the Battery

Cons: I find I have to "re-seat" the 3ds multiple times to get charging to start

Bought 2 of these. Both are touchy when using the cradle, 1 more so than the other (the pins stick in it). Had high hopes, almost lives up to it. They still work, I just have to pay attention when first putting the 3ds in the cradle.

Hello BPed,

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 9270. Just to verify, are the docks being used with the original 3DS model? I will be submitting a complaint regarding this so our product team can look into resolving this or making the product better. Also, if you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement to see if it works any better. We cover this dock with a one year warranty and obtaining a replacement would be of no additional cost. If you would like to proceed with the RMA, just let me know and I can get that started right away. Apologies for the trouble and hope this helps!

Great USB Charging Cord

Pros: USB cord works as advertised without the need of the dock. Making it work great for any 3DS, including the 3DS XL.

Cons: The dock portion is useless for the XL model. While the product is still inexpensive, I hate having that waste for a thing I'll never use. Would love to see the USB cord stand-alone.

I own a 3DS XL and use the USB cord for charging my 3DS with either my laptop or my Mophie battery backup. The dock isn't required for use, and so it's in the bottom of a drawer for me while the USB cord is with me all the time.

Good enough

Pros: The cord charges my 3DS when plugged into a powered USB slot.

Cons: The cord I received is fairly loose and easily slides out of my 3DS with little force.

The dock I received does not function, but I only needed the cord because I have no free outlets at my work station so I'm not too bummed.

If you want to charge your 3DS through USB, his is one of the only choices since there is no official cord. It charges my 3DS and that's all I needed it to do.

The dock doesn't work with my JP 3DS or my two NA 3DS. The cord also feels loose in all three of my 3DS.
It's probably just a manufacturing error. One of my co-workers bought one late last year and his is fine.

I really need it right now and I don't want to be without one for a long period of time, so I'll just keep this one.

USB cable alone sould have been great

  • Marrii,

Pros: USB connection

Cons: Since the 3DS came with a base (which I rarely use) I really don't need a second one unless it can charge any of the units that fit this particular connection. Nintendo was kind enough to stop changing the connection for their last few DS models, so a base that is exclusive to 3DS is step backwards.

I wanted a USB charger for my 3DS. The only one I could find was this one that came with the base. I really don't get the idea behind the base. At first, because of its design, I though it would charge my 3DS XL, but no. Then I thought I could use it for my DSi, but no. That would have been a bonus. Right now my 3DS XL is charging directly from the USB cable, so I'm not sure what the reviewer is talking about who said the USB connector didn't work. Perhaps, like with the iPad, you have to have the right wall plug for the cable to work. Bottom line, I bought this for the USB cable. It works fine. May or may not use docking station at some point, but sure would like one that fits the 3DS and 3DS XL now that I've seen this one.
