You Can Now Charge Your 3DS With the Lightning Cable You're Already Carrying

By Andrew Liszewski on at

For whatever reason, Nintendo decided not to include a charger with its new 3DS handheld console. You absurdly have to buy one separately, or you could just spend 896 yen (£5.55) on this new adapter that lets you use your iPhone or iPad’s Lightning charging cable instead.

Even if you’ve already bought Nintendo’s charger for the New 3DS or New 3DS XL, this tiny adapter is still a must-have addition to your kit. You probably don’t carry your 3DS’s bulky charger wherever you go, but there’s little doubt you always have a spare Lightning cable in your bag if you’re an iPhone or iPad user. Now you can use it to charge up all of your portable gaming hardware. [Gametech Direct via Tiny Cartridge]
