It does add some weight and thickness to the 3DS, which can be noticeable over lengthy gaming periods. Couple that with sharp edges of the 3DS (unlike the smoother edges of the DS series) it can cause a bit of discomfort. On the positive side, the bottom of the battery is a rubbery non-skid material which does make it slightly easier to grip, and sits on a table-top without fear of sliding away.
The battery is really easy to install. Just four screws, pop off the back lid, pop out the old battery, and insert the new battery. While the included tooth-pick style screwdriver is a nice gesture, don't use it. Any game geek or computer nerd worth their salt should have a precision screwdriver set; if you don't have a set, ask around. You don't want to strip the already-easy-to-strip screws, so be careful. If you're not comfortable with this, find a friend (the same one you borrowed the precision screwdriver from).
Be careful how long you take, because many games are time sensitive, and if you take too long, the clock will reset. I did not notice this, and when I tried to sync White 2 to the Global Link, it detected a time change and placed a hard-wait of 24 hours on me. I think I saw a discussion here how to quickly pop it out without losing the date/time.
Finally, not sure if it's worth noting, but my 3DS is one of the original NA releases (Ambassador Certificate), so the original battery might have already been approaching its end of life anyways.
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.
The feel is not like the cheep plastic look and feel the 3DS has but this nice soft felt-like feel to it yet it is hard like plastic. The battery increase is wonderful and I can now play my new Legend of Zelda game now without worrying about battery and turning off 3D. And the size of it contrary to what others may say it actually feels really good.
But of course there is a bad side to everything.
Now the bad side to this is so weird I have never seen this before but sometimes 3DS just turns off for no reason. And I use the internet on it a lot and when I am searching and it turns off this way and I go back everything is the way it was before I even turned it on so that is annoying.
So here are the cons and pros:
Great battery life
Size makes it more comfortable to hold
Easy install just unscrew take off battery replace with net battery and screw in place
Turns off 3DS randomly
So that is it. If you have any questions or answer to my weird random turn off than write a comment down in come section beeeloow....that was really bad sorry.
