Nyko's 3DS Power Grip battery lasts FOR-EV-ER

Okay, so it doesn't last forever, but it lasts a really long time. Nyko says that its new Power Grip for 3DS gives you three times the playtime of the standard battery, but that number on the box means nothing to me. I recently put it throu...

New Nyko PS3 stand charges controllers... with magnets!
