Let me just say that this is a fantastic device. I've been playing a handful of hours a day and leaving the device in standby the rest of the time, and I only have to charge it every couple of days. It adds some heft to the system, which makes playing one-handed games such as Okamiden without cramping up a bit of a challenge, but as long as you shift your position a bit every 20 minutes or so you'll be fine. The battery adds some bulk, but not enough to matter, and with the battery my 3DS fits snugly in the case I got for it (HORI hard pouch (which, for the record, I'd also recommend)).

If you know how to use a screw driver, you'll be fine with installation -- I used the included (ADORABLE) screwdriver and had no problems. Any small screwdriver will do the trick, though.

My only word of caution is that removing the 3DS battery will make it forget date/time, so if you're thinking you'll get this and then swap it back and forth with the original battery depending on your battery life needs, keep in mind it will be a bit of a hassle.

When this product was first announced, I was stoked to go get it. When it released and reviews started popping out, I was pretty peeved by it. Most reviewers sounded whiny that the thing added so much weight to it! I was really only stoked for the extended battery, as the Nintendo 3DS has God-awful battery power. So, since I purchased the 3DS on Amazon, I got a $10 promotional voucher good towards any Nintendo 3DS accessory, so long as it shipped from Amazon. Go figure, I bought the Nyko Power Pak+ with the Charge Base.

I received it, and I installed it, which was easy-peasy. It takes less than five minutes to do. They even give you a cute little screwdriver to do the job! When I charged it up and all, I got straight into playing my 3DS games, and oh boy, did I run it on punishing settings. I'll explain the results in a bit. Basically though, it does its job.

Does the Power Pak+ Do It's Job?

The short answer: YES. The long answer, yes, it does so by a long shot. It's a much higher capacity battery. I got the device two weeks ago, and I've been draining it dry ever since I got it for the sake of a review. What I did was run a series of four tests. I tested them with different settings, the two optimal ends of the scale, and compared the results. All tests were run with a 3DS Game in the game slot.

A got the Power Pak+ the first chance I got, seeing as it double the battery life of the 3DS. The original battery life was a pethetic 2 to 3 hours, so this thing is essential. The only problem is the thickness of the power pak+ (PP+); it add close to a half inch to the thickness of the 3DS. It redeems this by having the material of the battery finger friendly, and it has little indents where your fingers would rest, so it actually adds grip to the 3DS. You can't place it in the original Nintendo Charge Base, due to the thickness, so you have take the plug out of the base and stick in right into the 3DS, or buy the Nyko Charge Base.

Overall:

The Cons: Thick, Need to buy another charge base if you want to have style.

The Pros: Doubles Battery Life, Easy Grip, Easy Install, Low-ish Price.

BUY IT! WHEN THE BETTER 3DS GAMES COME OUT LATER THIS YEAR, YOU'LL WANT MORE PLAY TIME!

I confess that I was concerned about the fit and finish of this battery pack after reading some reviews, but the concerns were completely unwarranted. The battery sits nicely on the back of my 3ds, flush with the edges as it should. The matte finish is a 'Soft-Touch' near rubberized finish which gives my big hands something more to grab onto than the glossy plastic back. In playing with this for a couple of hours now, I've noticed that the slight additional thickness means my hands aren't getting sore from holding the skinny lower portion of the system.

Absolutely thrilled with the purchase for 10 dollars. The additional battery life is more than welcome, as the 2.5hr stock battery is just dismal! Especially playing Zelda: OOT, you can easily have a nice gaming session without having to be near an outlet to plug in.

Surprisingly enough, NYKO has hit a home run with this. Great price, great item.

I knew the 3DS battery life would be bad before buying but i was still surprised to see just how fast those bars dropped once i had the system in my hands. overall the nyko pak solves the problem, albeit not in a practical way.

I typically play with the backlight on 3, 3D on, wireless off and energy saver off, and with that setup i can get near 4 hours with the stock battery. the nyko pak gives me around 6-7 hours under the same conditions; not quite double the time, but close enough. i was wary about using a nyko charger after my nyko wii remote batteries ceased to recharge in their base, but using this standalone battery i haven't had a single issue whatsoever; it charges and works perfectly every time.

the battery feels well made and adds a full grip with a comfortable texture to the system. unfortunately, its added size also diminishes the sleek visual appeal of the system a little and makes it notably more awkward to carry around. the stock 3DS isn't exactly pocket friendly to begin with but it's not hard to fit in a pants pocket, while the extra bulk of the nyko battery begins to push the limit of what you can comfortably fit on your person.

the biggest problem with the power pak is that it's totally unnecessary for day to day use. yes, the stock battery is weak but when do you need to play over 4 continuous hours in your daily routine? when playing at home you can simply plug the unit in (and preserve the lifetime of your battery in the process), so there's no use for it there. the only time the power pak will really come in handy is on a long trip where you'll depend on your 3DS for entertainment the whole way.
