Loud Speaker Dock
Site: Buy from Brando
Overview : Do you feel the sound from your NDS Lite is too Quiet? You always can't listen very clear. This Speaker Dock can help you.
This speaker dock comes with 2 loud speakers which can improve the sound volume and quality, and it include a NDS Lite Li-ion, that can be charged with your NDS Lite AC adapter.
Quality/Usability : When I bought the original Nintendo DS, I thought it couldnt get any better than that with the dual screen and great sound. Then Nintendo goes and releases a Nintendo DS Lite with a better brighter screen but theres a problem, the sound didnt sound so great. It was lower even at full volume. The original DS trumped the DS Lite in sound and I was disappointed.
- Specify design to NDS Lite
- Improve your NDS Lite sound quality
- Included NDS Lite Li-ion 3.7V 1000mAh battery
- It can be charged with your NDS Lite adapter * The AC adapter is not included
- Available in white, enamel navy, light blue, pink and black
The Loud Speaker Dock runs on a rechargeable battery (included). It goes on the underside, between the two speakers. On the underside, there is also a plug that connects to the headphone jack of the DS Lite. When the plug is not in use, it is hidden in a groove next to one of the speakers.
The front of the dock has a switch. If the switch is on the left, it is the speaker. If the switch is on the right, it is OFF. If an AC adapter is plugged in while the switch is on the right, it will charge the battery. To the right of the dock are two LEDs (power and charge).
There is nothing to clip the DS to the dock. It is held in place by the tightness of the dock when the DS is placed. When the DS is placed onto the dock, accessing SLOT-2, volume switch and headphone jack can be reached easily. Accessing SLOT-1 is also easily accessible as well. There is an opening on the right side of the dock for the power switch. Unfortunately, in order to get access to the stylus, you will have to remove and DS from the dock.
The volume on the dock is very very loud. I was impressed by the loudness of the dock. The sound is clear even at the highest level. Adjusting the volume is done on the DS. There is no volume adjuster on the dock. The dock lasted a good 2-3 hours with on and off play.
Conclusion : Overall, the Loud Speaker Dock is a pretty good alternative for those who want a louder DS Lite. With the added thickness, it feels good in the hands. It would of been nice if it was able to charge your DS as well. Having to gain access or putting the stylus away can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Battery life is decent as well.
