Like many, I am completely mystified as to why there are no US charging stands to be found for the 3DS XL. Every other model has various charging stands available, but not even 3rd parties have put them out for the XL. The XL has been out for quite some time now, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. Nintendo briefly offered a US version of this stand for Club Nintendo members who traded reward points for them, but it has not appeared again.
This is official Nintendo product, but it is from Japan. The box clearly has Japanese writing and says "3DS LL" - which is the same model as the US 3DS XL, they simply use another label. The stand itself, though, says BOTH 3DS XL and LL on it - it is the same exact product in both cases, just the packaging is different (and availability, of course). All you get is the cheap plastic stand (this definitely isn't a beauty, but it is perfectly functional and discreet), you use your existing power cable. The power cable plugs...
Compared to the cradle that came with the regular-sized 3DS at launch, this stand is pretty light and cheap-feeling. But still, it fits the 3DS XL very well and it's nicer to have by the side of your bed or on your desk than a loose cable that constantly falls down on to the floor. It's angled slightly and has a cutout for headphones to facilitate watching video while it charges.
Not really worth the premium to import all the way from Japan but if you want a cradle for the 3DS XL, this is your only option.
Why can't I find this sold in the US?
This works great, I was getting tired of having forgetting to unplug my 3DS XL and almost ripping the charging cable out of the wall.
