For whatever reason, Nintendo decided not to include a charger with its new 3DS handheld console. You absurdly have to buy one separately, or you could just spend $8 on this new adapter that lets you use your iPhone or iPad’s Lightning charging cable instead.
Even if you’ve already bought Nintendo’s charger for the New 3DS or New 3DS XL, this tiny adapter is still a must-have addition to your kit. You probably don’t carry your 3DS’ bulky charger wherever you go, but there’s little doubt you always have a spare Lightning cable in your bag if you’re an iPhone or iPad user. Now you can use it to charge up all of your portable gaming hardware.
