5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic battery replacement May 3, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doubles life, and gives more play time! :) June 24, 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solves the problem June 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
After running out of power a few times and realizing my 3DS was spending more time in its charge cradle than in my hands, I almost returned it. As cool as the rest of the system is, a battery life that tops out at 3 hours is a huge limitation for any portable. Fortunately, quite a few smart peripheral manufacturers have realized this, and this is one result. Note that this is a replacement battery, not a plug-in add-on like some other third party products. You remove the 3DS rear panel and original battery, and this pack takes the place of both. It's screwed on and doesn't stick in too well without being secured in this fashion, so you can't easily swap it out. Fortunately, it lasts long enough that you probably won't need to. The battery comes with extra screws and a mini screwdriver.

Pro:

Inexpensive.

The rubberized surface is great; it actually makes the 3DS easier to hold.

Lasts way longer than the lame original battery. While it still won't get the 3DS up to quite the same run time as the DS Lite, it's at least tolerable now.

Seems to charge pretty quickly.

Easy to install. Took all of half a minute.

Con:

As you can probably tell by looking at the pictures, the original 3DS charge dock won't work with this product. There's one sold by Nyko if you care that much for it.

The added bulk might make the unit unable to fit in some cases or protectors. I use the pouch made by ICON and it fits, but is a bit tight.

It does make the 3DS heavier. No way around that...

This is the best current solution to the infamous 3DS battery life problem. I'd previously thought of buying extra stock batteries and swapping them out, but it's just too much of a hassle.
On a side note, having seen the original battery it's no wonder it doesn't last long. It doesn't look any different from a typical cell phone power pack.

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!
