Topic: Which battery - 3DS base model

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Hey guys,

I'm looking into reviving my base model 3DS but the battery life has long since been viable. I'm trying to research but I can't find anything concrete that tells me if the improved battery is compatible with the base 3DS (considering the battery was probably designed for the New3DS).

The options on amazon are;
OSTENT 1300mAh 3.7V Rechargeable Battery Pack

OSTENT 2000mAh 3.7V Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery

Ideally I would buy the 2000mAh 3.7V but not sure if compatible. If the answer isn't clear i'll just buy both




Wow I just looked at reviews for the above batteries! Not good at all and I won't be buying those. If anyone knows, please feel free to answer the question.



@Bathrezz Nintendo Australia has customer service/support that can help with replacement parts. Although, I see it mentions it's not at full capacity due to covid. I would think sourcing a battery shouldn't be a problem.

Nintendo of America, here, has a page for replacement parts. It has a battery for base 3ds, if you wanted to see it exists.

Thanks for reply.

I did send Nintendo AUS an email but waiting 5-10days for a reply kinda sucks, and their website says their shop is closed down and on another page says they are back open *shrugs

I went to my local EBgame (Gamestop) and they told me Nintendo 3DS batteries are only supplied to authentic repair shops, completely unavailable in retail : (
