charger question

#1chrishannerPosted 4/9/2013 2:08:23 AM
I was thinking of getting an xl for the new monster hunter and I see that it doesn't come with a charger. I also read that older model chargers will work.
My wife has an original ds, so would the charger for that work with the xl?

Thanks

No. DSi, DSi XL, 3DS and 3DS XL chargers are the same. DS and DS Lite have different chargers respectively.

Nuts, I thought that might be the answer.

So basically, if I want the privilege of using the console I'm spending 190 on, I also need to spend another 20 on a charger.

Excellent!

I think that equates to about what, 5 British pounds?

Oh ok, didn't even think about importing. That would be cheaper, but I'd need a plug adaptor as well wouldn't I? I think you have different sockets to us.

Ok, forget what I said before. I was looking at the wrong thing. Game have 3ds chargers for 7. I can afford that!
