Brilliant, thanks. Reserved one

if no mains charger is included, how do you charge it?

With your current charger.

Does the DS Lite Battery fit into the Ordinary DS?

Excellent, I bought a new DS Lite just yesterday, many thanks. Voted hot and added rep

That's a cracking deal, I bought two when they were a fiver each!

ds battery is exellent anyway isnt though ??



It is. My reason for purchasing is for camping trips when we're playing MP3s on the DS, one can be charging in the car so we don't go without tunes

Excellent!! I've got one reserved. H&R added.

I wouldn't have even considered buying one at £15 but at £3 it all of a sudden seems like a must-have item!!! :giggle:

Does anybody know how long the DS lite battery lasts?

probably a dumb question - whats a desktop charger? I ask because my canadian DS lite just refuses to charge with the adaptor that came with it (hopefully I didn't kill it while trying) so if I get this desktop charger can I just connect the DS lite to the puter and charge it from that? kinda like a usb thingie?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: oh another quick question - if I did kill the battery by trying to charge it in the UK (since its from Canada), can I just swap it with this battery and Voila! ;o)???

The desktop charger is used to charge up your spare battery while you're using the other battery in your DS. You need to plug your original charger into it.

In your case it sounds like it could either be your original plug-in charger thats broken or your battery that is faulty and not accepting a charge. For £3 it's gotta be worth a try to see if it works. If it's just a dodgy battery your problem would be sorted. If it's a broken charger you might be have to buy a new one.

Excellent reserved two one for me and one for the bairn, heat given.

Thanks Bez - already reserved one. Heat and rep to you for your help/info and to millarcat! cheers! :thumbsup:

fantastic just reserved one, bought our son a ds lite for xmas so will c ome in handy thanks..

great find. Just bought a ds lite yesterday so reserved 2 packs as I'll need them both for the long flights i'll be on next week when I go on holiday

This is a bit wierd as I was wondering earlier this morning if you could buy replacement batteries and for this price they are a steal.

One question though, are they the same as the official ds lite battery or are they less capacity?

This battery will only work with the DS Lite. It will not work with the original style DS, GBA SP or any other Game Boy system.

Done it about half a dozen times and not had a problem so far. Then again, it may just be they are good at the branch I go to in North Finchley...

Argos are pretty good unless it is the last one. If it is and they have your phone number with the reservation then they should call you to say it's out of stock. Things go missing due to stock miscounts, faulty goods not being exchanged according to the system or theft by staff!

None left out of four shops in Hull....:-(

Can you explain? Is the DS Lite an mp3 player too?

it is if you buy an aftermarket accessory. I have one called the R4DS. It allows you to play films, music and homebrew (and backup rom) games

Heated up and repped!
Got my £69 black DS lite (which I got through HDUK) delivered from Littlewoods yesterday. Reserved the battery kit at Argos.
Been trawling the shops today for software. Is it me, or do the most DS games seem pointed at very young children?

none in slough were earlier

Ive got one reservered at king edward street if you want it!

Picked mine up at lunchtime and left it to charge. Looks pretty well made, but not tried the fit of the battery covers yet.

For those wondering, its a 1000mah battery the same as the standard DS Lite battery
