    My daughter has a DS but doesn't use this for her DS. We bought it mainly because we needed an extra car charger and wall charger to charge our phones, and this was like $10 at the time. So I can't tell you if the USB part works well or not, but we've definitely gotten our money's worth by using it constantly in the car and wall. We've had it several months and the car charger and wall plug still work great with daily use. And PS we are constantly charging something because we both have two phones each and multiple portable chargers, we just use the cords that came with the devices with the plugs. So buy this amazing yet inexpensive thing, you will love it!!!!

    The Missing Charger

    When I bought 2 new Nintendo 3ds systems I also learned at the store that they do not include chargers with the console (likely because Nintendo considers it an upgrade system to the 3ds similar to the ps4 pro and did not want to increase production cost or pass them on). The great thing about this insignia set is that you can connect to a computer using the provided cable, plug into a standard wall plug (120 v usa standard) with the included adapter, or use the dc plug to hook up to a car battery or vehicle power port.

    Just as good as the official Nintendo power supply

    I skipped the original 3DS due to lack of games at the time of launch, and later when there were games I wanted I no longer had the disposable income. When I finally had enough money to invest in the 3DS I started to hear rumors about a NEW 3DS, so I decided to wait for it. Then it was announced that it would not come with an adapter... ok, weird but whatever. So when I ordered my NEW 3DS I ordered this adapter with it., and for roughly the same price it also charges the old DS and came with a car cigarette adapter, a good deal as I do take the occasional road trip.

    Saving my sanity DS charger

    This DS charger has 2 plug in spots. What does this mean? This means that I can charge both my boys' DS players at the same time. Now neither can assume I love one more than the other because I charged so and so's DS before theirs. The only thing I miss is the fact that if they whine I take the DS away so it does give this mom less time to check out the DS but in the end they are good sharers so I still get my Mario cart on when I can.

    Essential if you use your 3DS/DS in the car

    When I bought my 3DS XL it didn't come with a charger. I was shopping around looking for chargers for the home and for on the go when I found this. For the price of a regular wall charger I got an all-in-one charger. The charger has a cable that plugs into a wall plug-in adapter or a car charger adapter (both included). The plug is USB so I'm sure you could also charge your item using a computer as well. I take it with me wherever I take my 3DS.

    Solid DS lite charger

    We needed a car charger for the Nintendo DS lite, the kids need two different chargers for their Nintendo's this design was a god send, would be worth it to for the DS lite charger alone since that design is older and harder to find chargers for. In the box you get a usb cable with the two charging ports for the DSi and Ds lite, a car adapter and wall adapter. We are very happy with it so far.

    Must have if you are on the go with the 3ds

    I bought this as a solution to the problem of running out of juice when I am not at home with my 3ds xl. I have plenty of battery packs but never had the cable I needed until now. If you play a lot of 3ds on the go this would be a great accessory to make sure you can keep playing and not wait till you get home to charge the device.

    I don't know where the charger cords for electronics in my house always go, but I never can seem to find them when I need them! That's why I ended up buying this product. Luckily it has all the different charger ends on it that I need for all the various gameboys we currently own. How convenient, right?! I totally recommend buying this. I'm so glad I got it. One product, many solutions!

    My daughters are notorious for not charging their hand-held devices and so when the power inverter died I went this route instead as my car charger had a USB port on it as well that you can plug these into. Makes for a cleaner setup as well by not having to get the inverter out and their power adapter, just plug this into a USB powered port and you'll be charging!

    A necessity for both 3DS and DS

    I'm just going to say this. If you don't want to search Amazon or the Internet all day for a car charger for any 3DS or 2DS model and even as far back as a DS Lite car charger (FYI, this is also a wall charger for all 3DS, 2DS, and all DS models going back to the DS Lite). Just get this. It is worth the investment. Especially if like me you have a DS system.

    I bought 2 of these for the kids to use for road trips to charge their DS's they both have the 3DS but I think it will work with other models of the DS also. IT comes with both a wall and car charger which makes it great for home use too. they are always loosing chargers so these come in handy. No complaints so far they are holding up good.

    USB charging a plus

    Bought this for my daughter's 3DS which she received at Christmas. Disappointed that it didn't come with its own charger, I looked to get the Nintendo charger but picked this one instead because it works off of USB and has both wall and 12v socket adapters. So long as she has the cable, she'll never be without charging options.

    This is PERFECT for my sons DS! We needed something for long car rides to make sure his DS stayed charged! It plugs into the backseat charger and the cord is long enough to reach him in his seat. Bonus the charger uses a USB cord so we can also use a portable charger like we have for our cell phones. It's a MUST for parents with children.

    When I walked in the store I asked if the game system came with everything I needed and was informed it did. After opening the box, thankfully before a 20 hour flight I discovered it did not. Quick trip back and got this item. Comes with everything I could need to charge the game in any situation.

    My daughter and son-in-law resurrected their old Nintendo DS1's for their kids ages 9 and 6. In car power supply wasn't an option back "in the day", so this item fills the bill and was just what they needed to keep playing on the go.

    I purchased this charger because I travel a lot. A lot of hotels nowadays are starting to install USB ports in the rooms that don't always charge your phone so I wanted to get this to use in one of those ports. It also allows me to use those portable USB chargers and will charge the 3ds as well.

    Traveling for vacations can be difficult for children. Having the game die half way through the trip can create some havoc and fussy kids. This power pack will assure that even if the fully powered battery doesn't make it through the entire trip, having the power pack as a back up can be a sanity saver!

    Great product, very useful. The plugs for the 3DS/DSI/2DSI charging and the plug for the DS Lite are connected, which makes it nice and not having to worry about two cords being in different places. The wall plug and car plug are nice so you can charge your handhelds on the go.

    This power pack/charger kit has come in very handy. We were looking for a charger for the DS in the car - this fits the bill, and more! Now we don't have to bring two separate chargers along in the car, just one power pack gets the job done. And the cord is a good length as well.

    Best Buy was the only store that actually had this item in-store around the holiday, I was super happy. I didn't have time to order one somewhere else, I just felt it was too expensive but I needed it for my child and I was getting ready to leave out of town.
