Nintendo DS

Never again will your Nintendo DS lose its charge during a game thanks the nifty design of the solar panels that adhere to the top and bottom of the game system. This is an inexpensive do-it-yourself job with easy instructions found on Instructables.

As the creator of the solar panels, dark sponge, points out, the DS has a perfect surface area for applying the panels. There are two sets of panels on both the top and bottom of the game system. Each panel is 60x60mm and has a maximum power output of 3 volts at 40 ma. This provides enough charge to power the system and keep all the gamers happy.
