Here is some good news from CTA Digital on extending your Nintendo 3DS battery life twice as long.


Brooklyn, NY – CTA Digital (http://ctadigital.com) launches a solution for increasing the battery life of the 3DS, and making charging easy without having to take out your original 3DS battery.

No gamer enjoys having their games cut short and the last thing anyone wants in a portable game system is to be tied to an electrical outlet. This Portable Power Battery Pack is unique because of its internal lithium ion battery, which doubles the available battery power for the Nintendo 3DS. The Battery Pack is both an external battery and a wireless charger. Once the pack has been fully charged using the included USB cable, it’s available to play and recharge your 3DS anywhere without any wires. You simply place the 3DS onto the battery pack and push the power button to begin charging. Since this is an external battery, you won’t have to tamper with your 3DS with screwdrivers to replace the original battery. Once connected, the pack quickly charges the 3DS wirelessly. Even after completely re-charging the 3DS battery, this battery pack has another 30 minutes of emergency power left for additional back up gaming time.

See the Portable Power Battery Pack in action in this video demo: http://bit.ly/kfO6O9.

The Battery Pack takes 5 hours for a full charge, and takes 2 hours to fully charge the 3DS wirelessly. Users can see the charge level with four blue LED lights, and when it’s fully charged a separate red light will turn green. Avid gamers on-the-go won’t have to worry about running out of juice with this handy accessory, since the 3DS can also be used while it is charging in the battery pack.

The pack also has a useful built-in stand for an optimal viewing angle. It is available for purchase at Amazon (http://amzn.com/B004REJZLA) and other retailers where CTA Digital products are sold.
