Introduction: Usb Adapter for Nintendo DS

How to create an usb power adapter for your nintendo ds out of an usb cable & your nintendo ds charger.

Step 1: Analyzing

I noticed that my ndsl charger supplies almost 6v, so i decided to use a normal usb port to charge my ds, also because my pc can supply 5.1 volts that are perfect for charging it (and also because it is always turned on during the day).


1) Take apart your nds charger.
2) Look inside it & search for the power cord.
3) Using your tester(V), check & write down the position of the tiny cables inside the cord.
4) Close your charger, plug it on an outlet & write down the + & the - on the connector.

Step 2: Usb Cable

1) Cut in half your usb cable.
2) Plug it in your pc PAYING ATTENTION to not short circuit it.
3) Check + & - .
4) Desolder the nds charger cable.
5) Connect to the unplugged usb cable.
6) Solder the 2 cables together.
7) Solder the other half cable to the charger.
8) Close it & enjoy.

really good work!!! but i think it's a little complicate than buy a new cable for DS or a charger for DS!!

user

hello, i have a friend who supposedly used to have access to a cable that was from the ds charger to something that would connect to a projector (i would assume that it was to VGA) and it would display everything on the screen on to the projector, but it would drain the ds battery life, if any one knows about it plz tell me more, please note it wasn't me who was able to use this cable. and that i have never been able to see it in person. if anyone knows this instructable could help be used to fabricate the cable.

they actually sell these. my bro has one.

why buy when you can make?

lol, i do agree too.

can this also hack the ds???

Charge DS from computer... Cool!
