Product Description

Play longer and play in comfort with Nyko's Power Grip for Nintendo 3DS. The Power Grip works in conjunction with the existing 3DS battery providing up to 3x the play time making it perfect for long road trips, cross country flights or marathon gaming sessions at home. The extra playtime of the built-in battery is complemented by the ergonomic design of the Power Grip, allowing the user to play in comfort for as long as the extended battery lasts. The Power Grip easily clips on to the back of the 3DS. There is no need to remove the internal battery, or back cover, making installation as easy as possible. Once you're done playing, the Power Grip easily recharges through the standard 3DS AC adaptor.

I was suspicious about the claims made about this product, to say the least: a device that works in conjunction with the 3DS battery to almost triple the play time, needs no installation beyond clipping on to the console, AND makes the device more comfortable to play? Sounded like hyperbole to me.

After a few weeks of use, though, I can confirm that everything Nyko says about this product is true. The extended battery life is wonderful and solves the single-biggest problem most people, including myself, have had with the console. There really is nothing to the installation: you just clip your console into it and that's that. No unscrewing or anything involved that might damage your system. The grooves on the back are awesome for people like me with large hands and provide an extra level of comfort.

I can't think of any real downsides. The biggest problem for most people will probably be that this is incompatible, so far, with the circle pad pro. You can use one or the other at a time, but not both. This isn't an issue for me, however, as I've found no need for the CPP so far. Perhaps in the future. But for now, I'm not taking this thing off. It also makes it a bit bigger and heavier, although not by much. I am actually very impressed with how lightweight this thing really is.

This is the best purchase I've made in a while, and am so glad I did. For the moment, at least, this is easily a five-star product.

I got this I think about 5 or 6 months ago. It worked great, extending the less than 3 hour battery life of my 3DS to a solid 9 hours. Not only that, but it filled out the 3ds to fit perfectly in my hands. Now the 3DS feels tiny and far too thin without it. I would have rated it 5 stars, right up until it just stopped holding a charge one day. No clue why it broke, it just did. This is the second battery extender I've owned that only has lasted a few months. The first one was by Newbie gaming and lasted from November till sometime in spring. I know neither product was expensive... but a little more durability would be nice.

This little device gives the original 3DS (not the 3DS XL) some much needed extra juice. Before I got this, I was always having to turn off my 3DS to keep the battery from dying. Especially when I took the device on the go. But with the Power Grip, I practically never have to worry about the battery dying on me.

It will easily give me 6 extra hours, aside from the 3 hours you normally get. Which is usually more than enough.

The Power Grip has a little red light that will turn on & off whenever it's battery is low. It will stay on when you begin charging it with the 3DS' power adapter. And it will turn into a GREEN light when it's fully charged.

In terms of acting as a grip, it's a mix bag. If you have small hands or if the 3DS is for a child, the grip will work fine. But if you're a teen or an adult with large hands, the grip won't feel very comfortable. But I personally wasn't bothered by its ergonomics. And was able to play games fine using it.

However, the Power Grip also works as a protector for the lower part of your 3DS. Since it practically covers it entirely. It is really easy to put on and pull apart (hint: you start removing it from the back, not the front).

These days, most people own the 3DS XL. But if you happen to own an original 3DS, then the Power Grip is one of the best battery extenders around for it.

Ok. Where do I start. At first when I heard about this accessory, I was unsure. The first thing I noticed about the product box is that I thought it was another battery back that you had to take the original battery cover off and screw it on. After doing some research, I was wrong. The Power Grip happened to be something that you just clipped on and no installation like Nyko's Power Rack Plus. The one thing that I think is cool is that you can charge the Power Grip and 3DS at the same time. The other nice thing is that it makes the 3DS thicker and more comfortable for long periods of play. The other nice thing is that all the 3DS switches and controls are accessible while Power Grip is installed. I am only giving this 4 stars because it is hard to get used to way the grip groves feel when using for the first time. Other than that no big deal. I do recommend buying this at you local GameStop (if available) as it is cheaper there than what most of these greedy sellers are charging on here. I recommend this product to anyone who wants long playtime and comfort for long periods of play.

I bought this for a two-week long road trip, I only had the DS start using its own battery once the entire trip. Worked great for 5-10 hours depending on what brightness I was using and whether the 3D was on etc. etc. Only gripes: The grip on the bottom is oddly shaped and hurt to hold after a while, and the charger would grow very hot sometimes when charging (though that was in a very hot room). Would definitely recommend.
