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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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?
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
