    It comes with a charger. Think you need one of those two pronged converter because its two pronged.

    Depends how many watts it takes, you need something like this:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/100W-US-to...item51a9494230

    EDIT: Ok lol, someone with a US 3DS needs to take a look at theirs and see what it is.

    The one I linked to should be fine since it says 120v but don't take my word for it.

    Would be so much easier if you could just buy a UK charger and plug it in, the bit where you plug it into the 3DS should be the same.

    They should still use the same charger though. I'm not really sure how much but I think 1500w.

    Just get a UK 3ds charger, or a voltage converter for the US charger.

    edit:

    yes, the uk 3ds xl charger will work fine with the US 3ds xl.

    Just thought that it might not work, as for the voltage and the console might burn etc

    Yeah, I wouldn't just use an adapter. I would use a voltage converter. Better off though, get the UK 3ds XL charger. No problems there.

    It should, but I'd research it specifically for whichever console(s) involved.
