I own a DS Lite and I ordered a car charger that stated it was for a ds lite. when the product arrived it says on the package that it's for the game boy advance and the plug doesn't appear to be the same. I don't want to open it to try it because I want to be able to return it if it doesn't fit. Can someone tell me if I am right or wrong with this! Also I'm new to this game stuff and I've heard the game boy advance games can play on the ds lite, do they play through the other slot on the front of my ds lite? Thanks!

Since you are new to this game stuff, maybe I can help.
The Port where you add an AC or Car adapter is the same for the Original Nintendo DS and The Game Boy Advance SP system. The DS lite has a different, smaller port. Either you ordered the wrong car charger or it was falsely advertised to you. And yes, The DS system plays GBA Games.

Here are the disadvantages to playing GBA games on The DS
1. 2 or more player GBA games may be reduced down to only one player. Depends on the game. The Majority of GBA games that have more than one player requies 2 GBA systems to be connected to each other. Some Games I own have only one player playing at a time, which allows me to pass my system onto the other player when it becomes their turn
2. The GBA system plays GB Color and GB Black And White Games. The DS will only play GBA games.

Look at the images. One will show you where the GBA game goes and where the DS game does
