nintendo 3ds battery

ElDorito 7,474 1,374 December 7, 2015 at 05:19 AM
A friend of mine bought a New Nintendo 3DS... she told me it needs a special rechargeable battery... I didn't get to see it, but found some online for the 3DS... I picked her up an A/C adapter, but is she right that it takes a special battery? If it does, can someone show me one on amazon with prime shipping? I found some on Amazon, but am not sure if they are for the "New" Nintendo 3DS version. Thanks.

It's hard for me to imagine a New 3DS already needing a battery replacement. You aren't going to be able to swap batteries on the go with it unless you're also carrying around a #0 Philips screwdriver.

Yeah, they already have a battery. Maybe there's more information we're not privy to, but I'm not sure how/why someone would buy one without a battery. Maybe she wants an extended battery, or an portable charger (the battery life on these isn't great).

ETA: It would also come with an A/C adapter if purchased new. If she bought it used, then who knows...

It has the battery but not the charger.
