Works fine! – 3-in-1 USB Power Charging Cable for NDS Lite/NDS/DSi Reviews

I have tested this with an old DS "phat" and a DS Lite (but no DSi because I don't have one) and it charges them fine, whether separately or together. It did not seem to take very much longer than the mains charger when charging one unit at a time.
In the Forum for this item, recent buyers have reported that the cable fails to charge the DS "phat". Perhaps I was lucky or perhaps a bad batch has been used up now, who knows?
When used with compact mains-to-USB and/or car-to-USB adapters, this inexpensive cable can save taking bulky chargers away with you (and losing them)even if you haven't got access to USB as such.
Since the price for this item compares so favourably with the single-mode and dual-mode USB cables (DS & DSL) on offer, it makes sense to "future proof" for the DSi at the same time.
