I purchased this docking station because my daughters 3DSXLs charging port was damaged and I thought this would be a very easy solution to the problem.
In theory this would have been great but the problem is the one I got does not work very well at all. You have to position the 3DSXL just right to get it to charge and the slightest movement breaks the contact. I tried cleaning the contacts on the 3DS, putting something heavy on top of the 3DS for leverage and nothing reliably works.
I finally gave up and ordered a new charging port and soldered that in. I may have gotten bad one but I an very electronically inclined and I think it is just a design flaw in the product.
Bottom line is it works but be ready for some frustration trying to get your 3DS positioned just right so it will charge.
Good for the price, though it can be a bit fidgety to get to "connect". Simply sitting it in place doesn't quite work, pressing it just right and checking the charging light is what is required to make sure it is connected. However, it doesn't use the normal charging port, instead it uses the charging pads next to the charger port, so if you have a broken charger port this is a great alternative. I ended up getting this *AND* replacing the charging port, but replacing the port requires disassembly and surface-mount soldering skills.
Nintendo never brought a dock for the 3ds XL to the US, and this isn't an ideal solution. It kinda works, which is a nice way to say it kinda doesn't. The 3ds just doesn't stay attached well enough to consistently charge. I'd say it works less than 50% of the time without multiple deliberate attempts. If this doesn't sound like a good solution to you, look elsewhere.
