Totally unnecessary in 99% of circumstances as it will work just fine powered off just about any USB device via the micro USB lead it comes with. Easiest to plug it into a TV but USBs on a games console, pc or set top box are also fine as it only draws a tiny bit of power. Unless you have an ancient TV with no USBs and literally nothing else in the vicinity of your TV, you don't need this.

Would be far more useful if they actually started making the console again but Nintendo and doing what the consumer wants are not things that typically go together...

Perhaps officially, but I've used one just fine on a TV, PC and a console. There are no moving parts and it has a very low power CPU by modern standards so it will draw minimal power plus, if it wasn't intended to be used this way, why is there no adaptor in the box?

Still for those that feel safer plugging it in, then fair enough...

iPhone plug works perfectly with the mini nes
Why am I thinking of ordering this..?
In case anyone wanted this for the Ninty branding....looking at the reviews once it is out of the box the actual adapter is unbranded!
Or, buy a generic USB charger from anywhere for about £2 ...
Would
Hi, does anyone know if this would work plugged into a power bank?
