Charge and play at the same time via USB!
on December 8, 2013
I didn't want to carry around an extra AC adapter when traveling. I figured if I could charge my 3DS XL from my laptop, then I would be set.
This thing is great. The cable does not feel cheap and the connections are not flimsy.
My biggest worry was that it wouldn't pull enough power from the USB port to allow the 3DS XL to be played and charged at the same time if the battery was low. Well, I am pleased to report it can do both at the same time! I have found myself in the middle of marathon Pokemon Y sessions where that stupid red light comes on. I just reach over for this cable, plug it directly into my laptop or front ports of my computer- and that red light turns orange- problem solved!
For the price, you can't go wrong.
