takes only four hours to fully charge the
induction technology battery .

according to the company. Using the included
screwdriver, gamers can unscrew
the previous battery from their DSi
units, replace with CTA Digital’s included
lithium-ion battery, connect the
charging pad to a power supply, turn on
the charging pad, and place the DSi or
DSi XL on top of the charging pad.
