I was wondering if someone could tell me what all came with the DS lite so that I can determine what accessories that Ill need to buy. Also, does it use AA batteries or is it rechargable batteries? I noticed that they sell a recharging dock so am wondering if this would be a good buy too.
I don't really know that you need any accessories out of the gate. The DS Lite has an internal rechargeable battery (that can be replaced with the use of a screwdriver) and it comes with a power cord to charge it with. The only accessory I really use is a tiny case that can hold up to 4 DS games so I don't need to carry around the entire box for each.
Mickey, The Ds comes with the following Ds System 2 Picto Sticks Ac Adapter Rechargable Battery Pack-In the system
I only have two assets to my DS and that is a Screen Protector-for the screens and a Ds Case which carrys 8 games. If you plan on traveling alot with it i recommend the traveling assets that have like car adapters to recharge ur ds and other things.
Thank you, appreciate your input. I ordered the traveling case (which I believe comes with the screen protector and can carry 4 games) because I do a lot of traveling and thought this would be a good thing to have. Do you or anyone else know if DS Skins are worth the $$$? I know I purchased one for my IPod to keep it from getting scratched up and it was well worth the money. Again, thank you very much for your input. It does help a lot and is very appreciative.
I'd say a good carrying case is the only real 'must have' accessory for your DS. As for a skin, I'd say I've been fairly hard on my DS (I take it to the gym every day) and it still looks pretty good - no major scratches or dings. I'd probably hold off on buying a skin and see how it wears normally.
