What Is a Nintendo DS Charger?
The Nintendo DS video game system uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, as compared to regular AA batteries in previous hand-held systems. In order to get its power, the system comes with an official Nintendo DS charger.
What Is It?
The Nintendo DS charger is used to charge the specially designed rechargeable battery that powers the Nintendo DS system. Since the popular hand-held video game system has been reintroduced in various forms (DS Lite, DSi), the charger has also been altered.
How to Use
To properly use the Nintendo DS charger, you first need to plug the adapter into the external extension connector on the back of the system. Next, pull out the two prongs until they lock into place, and finally plug into a wall or floor outlet. An orange light will appear on the system if you have properly equipped the charger. According to Nintendo.com, the battery needs to be charged for four hours to get a full charge. The Nintendo DS can be used while it's taking its charge.
Nintendo DS Lite
The DS Lite charger is very similar to the original. It has the fold-away prongs of the original DS model. The DS Lite battery can last up to 19 hours on the lowest brightness setting, compared to the original DS's 10-hour maximum battery life.
The Nintendo DSi, the newest version of the dual screen handheld system, comes with a brand new charger. This version of the charger will get more use than the DS Lite, as the battery life for the DSi is much shorter due to its larger screens and a more powerful processor.
Nintendo also created a car charger that can be used to power the Nintendo DS system on the road. Simply plug it into the automobile's cigarette lighter, and the system will immediately charge. The official car charger has a 6-foot cord length, which is great for playing in the backseat while taking the charge.
Although the official Nintendo DS charger does come with the purchase of a new DS system, people can purchase one if they need a replacement.
