So I have noticed that I miss my old docking station for my 3DS, it was so convenient to just drop my DS into it and charge up before I headed out. Now the 3DS vanilla is sold and I have a XL and I am really wanting to get the docking station for it. but $19 seems like a tad much. What do you guys think? Worth dropping $19 on it or should I just get use to plugging it in?

$19 is too much, wait for a third party charge cradle.

Good Idea, but were there any 3rd party ones for the original? I haven't really found any before. I am in no rush so I will most likely just wait till something for a decent price shows up.... or I steal it. One of the two.

What is this about a docking station for the 3DS? No such thing ever existed for the original, so why would there be one for the XL?

A charge cradle isn't a docking station, similar to how a box fan isn't an air conditioner.

A lot, actually. Do a web search for "docking station". What the 3DS has is just a charging cradle; nothing more. :)

I did a google search for "3DS docking station" and many people/sites refer to the charge cradle as a docking station. Also chargers for iPods and other electronic devices are called "docking stations".

So if enough people refer to something incorrectly, they become right? Interesting.

Now try searching for the term "docking station", like I said. That will show you what a docking station actually IS. It's not just an AC adapter or a charging cradle, no matter how many people erroneously think so.
