New 3ds Xl Micro Usb Charging Port Replacement

Sep 17, 2019
This isn't a very exciting mod and it wasn't done exceptionally well given the glue, but my fiancé found her Nintendo 3ds but the charging port was broken so I quickly replaced it using a micro usb breakout board that I had laying around. The 3ds normally takes 4.6v however 5v works just fine over usb. I know hot glue is a terrible solution for keeping it in place but it's holding well and brought it back to life. Most importantly she is happy with it lol.

Just in case anyone also wanted to do this I included an image of where I soldered positive and negative to in the 5th image. (Image was taken from google so it still has the orginal charging port)
