This item is a god send for people like me. The Nyko 3DS Charge Base comes with the Nyko PowerPak+ and the Nyko 3DS charge base. The PowerPak+ is the main star in this package, offering up to twice the amount of 3DS battery - oh and yes, it does that exactly. The charge base could be considered to have too many LED's, but for me it's fine and I like the styling. It fits very well in my black themed work area and is simple to use. I have had no problems with it at all. All you do is plug it in, put your 3DS with PowerPak+ in it and press the power button. Done, then let it charge. Of course one can simply put on the PowerPak+ and use the default 3DS charging cable, as that also works for the product. I have heard people being unhappy with the charge base, mainly for it's apparent lack of user friendliness. Please believe me; this product is very very easy to use. It is so simple and easy to work. The product includes a screwdriver used for unscrewing the screws to access the battery compartment; I did not use it. Why? Well there is a strong opinion that is is not made well and threads your screws. Whether this is the case or not, I do not know. What I do know is that I don't have any spare screws and don't want to take the risk. So apart from the screwdriver and the strong smell of tar from the product and packaging, no problems. There may be a slight oily liquid on the product, but can easily be wiped away if that is the case. I am in the United Kingdom, so the item cost about £30 total with shipping (about $45 in USA) - this is a very high amount, but it was the cheapest. Even with the high price, there are few shops in the US shipping to the UK and I am grateful that Overstock is - courtesy of FiftyOne. For those in the UK, it took a total of 12 days to come here. That is the same as free shipping from China, so not too pleased on that front. Nevertheless, at least I was able to get my hands on one. This speed is not helped by the fact that Overstock uses FiftyOne, as it adds more stages to the order and results in the order taking longer to complete. Overall good product but shipping could be improved internationally.
