New Nintendo 3DS XL Black Charging Cradle £9.99 @ Zavvi

Found 16th Jan 2015
Black charging cradle for the new Nintendo 3DS XL. Best price around at the moment, one of the few places even selling these.

I believe this does NOT come with the AC Adapter charger, which is required for using this. Basically AC adapter cable plugs into the dock rather than the N3DS, then you just pop your N3DS in the cradle to charge - mainly for convenience.

White version available here (believe this is for N3DS not XL) - zavvi.com/3ds…tml

Don't forget a whopping 11p of cashback from TCB.

Only other place I can find selling these in the UK (granted I only had a quick look), is 365 Games for £13.99. Not sure why Nintendo themselves don't have them on the store yet. Seems a reasonable price for the convenience/keeping things tidy.

They're quite handy. I've got one that came with my ambassador model, you can wrap the power lead under the base, so no trailing cable is visible. Great idea!

Will wait for a nice coloured one to come on club Nintendo. Good price though

Thanks ordered!!

I think these are utterly pointless - we have 2 3ds docking stations and never use either.

Agree but hey ho

Still need an AC adapter?? Then utterly pointless.. A piece of plastic with a hole at the bottom for the charger to come through. If its not then what i described would do exactly the same job.

In a nutshell but then you could break a lot of things down into simplistic terms. For a tenner its personally worth it to me so I can just pop the device in the dock and have it charge, no need to fiddle with cables, keeps things tidy and neat. Also sitting upright prevents it from being scratched on a desk. But yes it is a piece of plastic, not quite with a hole though.

Will this work on the "old" 3ds xl model? Or does it just fit the new 3ds xl model
