The 3ds uses a proprietary charger, which means that the only charger that will work with it is the Nintendo charger.

there are third party charges that can be bought for cheap.


And also void your warranty if they fry your system.

Generally cheap chargers aren't all that great.

I've used third party charges for my GBA SP, DS Lite and DSi for years with no problems.

There is a difference between 3rd party and cheap, there are plenty of good 3rd party chargers out there, but they aren't all that much cheaper than the Nintendo brand. The really cheap ones usually break quickly.

Strange! Just bought a blue XL (futureshop canada) and I got an AC adaptor included as stated on the box.

Toke Jopic, or TC was just born yesterday. Cheap ass Nintendo has already covered this age old fact that some regions were not going to include a charger with the 3DS XL before it was released. Try this little thing called research next time.

Not everybody reads game news you know. Unless you are on the message boards everyday it was pretty easy to miss the charger bit. Especially considering it is included in America and Canada, which make up the majority of the English speaking internet.

It seems some had chargers packed while other didn't. Smaller box versions, perhaps?

Both my NA and JP XLs didn't come with chargers.
Not that chargers are expensive if you need extras anyway.
