Topic: 3DS Street Pass and Battery Recharging

Posts 21 to 22 of 22


Just recieved a better reply from Nintendo in my other e-mail account, sounds a lot more like an official stance on the issue:


Thanks for contacting us. Here’s what you need to know about charging the Nintendo 3DS:

  • If you put the system on its charging cradle or plug in the AC Adapter directly to charge before the battery is completely spent, it will only count as a partial charging cycle.
  • Leaving the system on its charging cradle or plugged in directly overnight or past the point where the battery is fully charged will not cause harm to the battery.

Thanks again for writing. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to reply to this email.

That's great to know! Now I won't feel bad about charging it continuously.
