Nintendo DS Battery Problems

I'm not sure what happened to my battery, but I won't charge anymore. I'm currently in Europe using a DS made in the US. The voltage is different, so I have a transformer to switch it to the European version. The transformer has two settings: lo (less than 25W) and hi (anything above 25W). On the DS is says its input is 4W meaning I need to use the lo setting. I accidently plugged it into the hi setting and now it won't charge.

I plug the DS in and the light doesn't indicate that it is charging. I thought maybe it was overcharged so I used it until the light turned red telling me its running low on battery. I tried to charge it again, but nothing happened.

Now I have no clue what to do. Any suggestions? I don't really understand how batteries work and am completely clueless on how to fix this.

Ok this costs money but my idea is to maybe buy a new battery or to take it to nintendo.
the cheapest one is battery. they are sold on amazon.co.uk with a screwdriver for about £4 if it is a lite.
good luck and if all fails either get a new one or get a new charger or take it to nintendo.

We got the Nintendo DS in US and it does not charge with the adapter now in Czech Republic, Europe. Can we purchase the charger here?


As long as the voltage etc are the same and it is a suitable replacement for the particular model of DS then Yes you should be able to get and use a charger from you current country if after you have bought a new charger and it still does not charge it could very well be the charging socket or battery has failed and needs repairs or replacement depend on what has failed. I hope this helps.

How long should my battery last? I bought an nintendo DS lite and I forgot to ask?


Hello there, the Nintendo DS Lite has four levels of brightness. The battery will last 15-19 hours on the lowest settings, and 5-8 hours on the brightest.This can also vary depending on the type of game activity."
So the DS should last the whole time in even on the highest brightness settings, if fully charged. Nintendo states that it takes 3 hours to fully charge the DS. 

hope this helped, also this site will also help you to get your ds battery to last for longer

If its the charger that is it probably the charger its the battery. And a universal charger would work but try not to buy it off line if you can.

Nintendo ds not charging


. go to ebay or even gamestop and purchase a new battery. sounds like the battery might have gave up. these kind of things happen, rare but happen

oither things it could be is a cold solder. the female power jack might not be fully soldered on the board. causing the battery not to be able to charge.

i think if you change the battery it will work. make sure you get the correct model/brand u dont want no knock off batterys
