Double the battery life? Okay. I'm sold. Who's getting it??

Further reduce the portability of the device? No thanks.

The battery pack looks to be around a half a centimeter thick at most. that's hardly reducing it in my opinion.

Are you looking at the bottom half, or the top? That bottom piece is the dock. the top piece is the battery pack that lays against the base of the 3DS.

I suspected this type of device would appear. I suspect this one uses rubbish old rechargeable battery technology though, given that it only manages to double the battery life despite appearing to be several times bigger than that built in battery.

If they managed to make one that offered around 8 times the battery life and wasn't as fugly as this beast, I'd be interested.

I just saw this on IGN, lol. Every time I bought a 3rd party device of some sort for a Nintendo system, something always goes wrong. Don't think I've bought a Nyko product before...so, I dunno. I'll see how it goes without it first...(and see a review of some sort for this thing...)

No more anime girls for now...maybe they'll show up as my avi every now and then...lol

I'd settle for 3-4x, and I mean just on the battery pack. For that size, at least. I'd rather have one a bit more compact like the Xbox 360's controller chargers, for example, if it's only gonna be for an extra 3-5 hours

I'd just be afraid that it would screw up your system. I had a Wii remote charger that fried to of my remotes. So I'll read some customer reviews before I invest. Otherwise, it sounds like a great idea.

I'd be willing to bet that Nintendo sell some sort of official larger battery replacement at some point...... for like $5000

all you do is unscrew the battery cover, and screw this right one. That's it.

I've had serious problems with Nyko peripherals in the past, so I'll pass on this.

If this gets released in America and it's under $30 then i'm definitely getting this.

Man, I have never had problems with them at all. My Wii stuff all works great. But you are right, it's a good idea to wait for some rep and review on this.

Yeah, it would be wise to wait for a review.

I'll wait. I don't mind.
