3DS XL first time charge

#1sicnarf93Posted 8/12/2012 11:37:54 AM
I was wondering if it is necessary to fully charge a 3DS XL before using it for the first time?
If so, how long would it take to do so and what would happen if we don't charge it?
Thanks

eh, just plug it in anyway, just in case. its not going to hurt the batteries if you charge to 100% because its made to stop at 100% and keep it there.

This was only the case on Alkaline batteries but nowadays batteries are usually Lithium-ion batteries (including the DS) which should actually be charged fully before use.

Quick Start guide recommends you charge it before playing.

It's not going to come with much of a charge anyway, so you'll want to charge it when you get it. However, you can play it while it charges. It's not going to make a difference.
