I'm not entirely sure how many stars to give this product I opened the package expecting what is pictured, and instead it was a black charger that looked entirely different than Nintendo's product. I ordered this charger after buying http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001PIY49O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8 And psc=1 (which didn't work from the start), and returning it.I decided to try it out and see if it worked, and as soon as I plugged it in it started charging. No fuss, no messing with anything, it worked perfectly. It's not the grey standard charger, but for most people it works better: the plug still folds flat, but it goes vertically instead of horizontally, so it could stand up in a small space on a power strip (where mine is), fold ""flat"" against the wall, or anywhere in between. It's not what I expected and probably not what I would have purchased, but I'm glad to have it and would buy it again.
