    I mean its a cord...

    Not sure what to grade it on here. It is a cord. When both ends are plugged in it charges your DS. The end of the old style DS plug and the new style DS plug are attached to the same cord so it can be annoying to have a cable dangling from the end when playing while charging, however, on the positive you will always have both on you should you need to charge the other. If like me you only have the new DS this is useless to you. It should have been 2 separate cords or at the very least 2 sold separately. The wall AC and DC adaptors were exceedingly cheap. Would not use unless they are the only option. I threw them away immediately.

    Great for the Nintendo DS enthusiast, but...

    This product contains everything you need for at-home and on the road play, including an AC Adapter with USB connection + cable, as well as a car charger. These items work for all Nintendo DS and 2DS/3DS models (including new 3DS) except the Original Nintendo DS and thus, the Game Boy Advance SP as well. This product would have received 5 stars if only the included cable was longer. I imagine most children and adults that would use this product intend to charge their systems while playing, but this cable demands that you be close to the ac outlet for that to happen.

    Working Well

    Works well so far. I mainly went with this particular charger when I bought my 3DS because I needed a car charger adapter that I could use with my phone, too. I wish the cable was a little bit longer, though. It just makes it to my hands over the back of the couch when I'm sitting playing with it plugged in. I don't know why 3 ft seems to be the standard cable length. Especially considering this is sold with a car charger, it would be hard to play while it's plugged in unless you're sitting in the front. Charges just fine, though!

    The cable does what it is supposed to do but should be longer from the charger to the branch off for the connector split to individual connections. Maybe 5 or 6 feet instead of 3 feet. If you have to power your Nintendo with the power plug in the front drivers area and the game machine is being used in the rear seat area you may need to get a USB extender cable in the length that fits your needs. Other than this I'm happy with the purchase.

    Great buy, cable could be sturdier

    This is a great buy, this is all Nintendo had to throw into their packaging for the New 3DS, just the USB cable and I would have been happy with that. Glad Insignia makes a product like this, they also throw in a block wall charger and a car adapter which can be used with other USB cables, same goes for wall charger. Only reason I didn't give it 5 starts was the cables seem a little "frail" when it splits into two cables. They could the made it more sturdier in my opinion.

    I bought this because the New 3DS doesn't come with a wall charger and I didn't want to have to fight with my son for the one I have for my 3DS XL. The cable works great and the inclusion of a car charger made the road trip I took last month a lot nicer. The only thing I don't like about it is the length. It is probably only 3' long which makes it almost impossible to play the system while it's plugged in the wall, but worked great in the car.

    I bought this for my son to replace a broken charger. What's nice about this unit is that if the power brick portion stops working you can unplug the charging cable from it and use the cable with any other usb type wall charger. Other units I've seen have the cable permanently connected to the brick portion of the charging solution. Other than that it works as advertised and the cable length is adequate.

    Note to anyone planning to purchase a Nintendo 3ds XL....it does not come with a charger. What?! Yep. This was the only one Best Buy had in stock while I was there, and while it fails because of short cord length, it does allow you to charge your ds and 3ds at the same time. Minor victory. Excellent customer service in store. Top notch. Thank you!!

    Good charger kit

    Includes a car charger and wall charger. The USB cable also works charging off a computer. A good versatile kit to get with the New 3DS XL since it doesn't come with one. Only major knock is it doesn't clearly state amps/voltage on the package if you're concerned about unlicensed power chargers working with your system. So far it's worked great for me though!

    This box DOES come with AC plug

    The Best Buy representative sold me the BB brand adapter for another $14.99 because they told me there was NO AC in the box. Seemed odd to me because how could it work without a plug, but she insisted. Just be aware this AC plug IS INCLUDED. You do not need to buy the adapter unless you want access in car

    Good kit, but short cord

    Overall, this kit does what it's intended to do: charge your 3DS systems via not only wall, but also car and USB. But the one issue I have is the cord is kind of short, much shorter than the official charger. If cord length is a concern, go for the official one, but this is a good one for versatility.

    A little expensive

    This comes with both a box plug for the wall and a car adapter. The cord can be switch with those or any other adapters you already own. It was more expensive than I would have liked as I only needed the cord but I needed it then rather than wait to find it cheaper online.

    I am happy that I do not have to search high and low for a replacement charger. This works on all of my Nintendo portables which is really nice. It can be used with the included car adapter, the included wall adapter, or with any usb chargeable source. It is a good replacement!

    I like it because it does what it needs to do. Just disappointed that I had to buy it separately from the console because it does not come with it. Other than that it is perfect. Like that I can charge it in my car with only having the one charger rather than two.

    This is all my son wanted for Christmas! I'm so happy that I read the reviews before I purchased it. I would have been really upset had I not purchased the charger. That is the only complaint. At this cost you would think the charger would come with it!

    My son received a 3DS for Xmas but it did not come with a power cord. I looked online and found this on Best Buy's website. It seems to be a great deal vs the standard power cord as it also allows you to charge in the car. The standard cord does not.

    The Nintendo plugins for most of their products are simply reshaped USB plugins, and in this case I know the DS has mini USB plugins. Yet, this cable is perfect for charging your DS with a battery pack you would charge your phone with.

    Does its job well enough, only issue is wire is a bit on the short side. Also adapter did not charge my ps4 controller for some random reason. Just thought I'd let you know this adapter might not work for other items but probably will with most phones.

    Man, we have been using the 3DS for a while, then they died. We thought they were broke! Only because the 3DS didn't come with a charger. But whew! Thank goodness Insignia came up with this great idea to make a charger! Wowza!! Yahooo!

    This charger works fine. Wasn't my first choice but the store was sold of out the first party one. The only downside is the extra plug it has for the older models, that is kind of annoying. But as far as how it works, no complaints at all.
