The dock is great to rest it on when idling, and it's not too bad to hold when you're playing either.  It also uses the same plugin as the DSi, so if you've got a car charger you can charge it in the car if it gets low.  If you turn off 3D and lower the lighting level, the battery life gets much higher, so if you prefer FPS over 3D, you may wanna look into doing that.

Also, I must recommend this:  http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/usb-gadgets/ceca/

It'll extend the battery life of ALL your portable electronics, so it's a pretty damn good deal.

You see it as desperate.  I see it as a great emergency power supply for any electronic gadget I have on me and forgot to charge/trip too longer that I was expecting.  Of course, though, it's not like I'd expect a Venusian to actually plan ahead just in case...

Hm... I think I'd rather stick with my homemade usb battery chargers. They're half that price and hold just as well... Anyway, is the 3DS really all it's cracked up to be? It's kinda sad that you can't really get the 3d effect without actually playing it, but how is it so far?

You're on the bus in the middle of running your errands, your 3DS is critically low on battery power, and there's not a USB port in sight.  What do you do?

Also yes, it's actually better than I was expecting.  All we need now is software support in the form of games, and that's looking nice on the horizon - Zelda, Kid Icarus, Star Fox, etc...

Ah that's right, there really aren't any good games out yet... But there will be by August, right?

As for the charger thing, they have a port where I can plug in usb devices to charge. Have that, a usb=> dsi adapter and I'm good to go. If that fails, I always have my hand crank charger as a backup. Although I prefer avoiding that if at all possible...

I think a car charger is cheaper. thats what i used when i was (forced) to go on a two week road trip out west last summer.
Execpt... our new car battery died 3 days after the trip...

But it was over 4000 miles so a wrist charger wouldn't be best for it any way.

I say just get a car charger.

THIS JUST IN!

People all over the world suddenly, apparently, have driver's licenses and cars to boot!  More at 11!

Okay, sarcasm aside, zman, not everyone can afford a car.  I go by bus everywhere.  In fact, a lot of people don't have cars - and anyone under 15 definitely doesn't.  So while they're out hanging outside or something or maybe at a friend's house - and said friend may not have the proper charger.

I say think before you speak.

A nice tidbit, which I have been informed of by a good friend: early adopters of the 3DS will be able to get a free game. I think it was a Virtual Console game? Actually, that reminds me, I still have to register my system on Club Nintendo.

@role: little tidbit for you.
If your taking a bus across the country and back, through the hottest places in the country for two weeks because you can't afford a car then you shouldn't be on a vacation (and probably shouldn't have a 200$ gaming device.)

Also I don't have a license yet. (I have a fear of driving... dew to my family getting me into over 20 car accents in my life and my first when I was 1 week old and my last 2 weeks ago...)

But really? a bus out west for two weeks! If it has air conditioning then you could buy a car for the cost of that trip.

I don't have the money for a cross country trip.  Why the hell would I take a bus that far?  I live in the city, genius.  Buses are what take me to places like work and the store.  Think before you post.

Besides, some of use DON'T LIKE having to connect to a wall when playing a portable device.

You two do realize you're arguing about the other persons reasons for charging their 3DS they way they do as though it applied to you too right?  Honestly, why not start arguing about how you live in your own house instead of the other person's, or that your names aren't reversed next, it'd make as much sense.

I noticed something interesting while I was going for a car ride earlier: in the Home menu, all of the graphical representations were sped up while we drove. As I sit now, the objects spin at the usual speed that I am used to. However, they were extremely fast as we drove (and when we halted, so did they). Can anyone confirm whether this is a feature or a bug?

Fox: That would be cool to have, yes. Where the text in the ROM is uncompressed. - The huffman compression used in the gba games is not used in the nds game, so perhaps that may be one reason it wasn't done. I think it is some generic compression thingy. If someone did do it (and make the entire ROM uncompressed), perhaps I would be more inclined to work on my dark dawn editor. Hm?
