OK, so my younger brother was dumb enough to charge his 3DS with a fake charger, which caused his battery to expand, which itself caused malfunctions within the console. I've been looking for replacement batteries online, but I was wondering if anyone knows which one would be the best?

"Malfunctions within the console"?
Is that something that, maybe, should be sent to Nintendo to repair?

Nintendo sells replacement batteries, and Nyko sells unofficial ones.

This is a signature.

If in doubt, contact the manufacturer (Nintendo)

Definitely get a replacement one from Nintendo. I've read the Operator's Manual that came with the 3DS, and replacing the battery with a 3rd-party one voids your warranty. If you're looking for more battery life for your 3DS, I'd find a Nyko Power Grip. Sure, it just about doubles the thickness of your 3DS, but you also get about 3-4 times the charge. iirc they're only $10 (down from the $30 or so I paid for one about a year ago) at Best Buy.

Exactly.

Yeah definitely contact Nintendo. If it still is under warranty I would leave out the part of using another charger.

I believe nintendo has the replacement for it go to support. Or the nintendo store online. Or call them.

Hm does anyone think this would work with my 3ds. Here is it's problem about 2 months ago my 3ds just randomly stopped charging, i had to force the charge in and old to charge it but it only charged about half as much so it only had about an hour of charge. Now it doesn't turn on at all, does anyone know if this would help me to. As for your problem olimar you should contact niintendo.

I have acually already booked a repair with Nintendo, but my 3DS is no longer under warranty, so it is likely to cost. I don't think Nintendo's UK online store sells batteries, just SD cards and chargers...
