Gonna call to try to send it for repair tomorrow. Normally I'd be okay with just transferring my stuff to a different 3ds but I really like the SNES one AND I managed to put on the screen protector perfectly on it (after 3 failed attempts), so I really hope they can fix it

I'm dumb---I wouldn't even have been able to transfer because I'd risk the 3DS running out of battery during the process ;__;

You probably have already, but have you made sure that it's not the charger that is faulty?
I've gone though about five 3DS chargers.
Long live Atlus and NIS.

While I haven't gone through any 3DS chargers at all - touch wood -, this has been overwhelmingly my experience when I've experienced faults with various electronics, that weren't the charger pins being bent out of place. Take it to a game shop - exchange/retro shops are usually the best for this - and ask if you can plug it in to see if it charges.

Yes—the charger still works with a different 3ds I have

I'll be sending it in. I don't think it's the battery since it's the new SNES model which just came out late November.

There's also the docking station pins to charge it, which are the gold contacts on either side of the charging port. There is a cradle the unit drops into to charge that way, if the port is broken, as those contacts are harder to break.

Don't send it in. Buy a new battery. They are $15 on Nintendo's site. If the 3DS is that important to you, you should try every other option first. Because chances are, Nintendo is going to send you a refurb.

You guys think it’s the battery and not the charging port? Can I switch the battery from another new 3ds xl?
