I picked up a GameBoy Pocket at my local Thrift Town for $8, great deal! It came in an authentic Nintendo Gameboy bag with 2 games but with no power adapter. These did come with power adapters, right? What can I use besides what it came with? And how do I know if its charging? I didn't see a power/battery light or anything, but I did notice obviously where the batteries go, etc. Does this system support regular batteries and have an internal battery that can be charged, or? Thanks guys... I know these might be stupid questions but I used to own one of these even when I was a little kid and I can't remember for the life of me how it charged, etc.

does it use an ac adapter?

i am loving mine so far... i wish the save batteries, etc in older games would work, though ;-/ Donkey Kong (94) needs to be rereleased on the DSI! How cool would that be? VC?

No it didn't come with an ac adapter nor a chargable battery, those were sold seperatly, and truth to be told, no one from my old friends bought that for the Gameboy.

As Black D. said two AAA batteries is all you need for playing.

You know you can replace the batteries in cartridges so you can use the save function again.Just look it up on the internet ,theres a few guides, and you can get the batteries on e-bay :)

What's this bit for again?
