[* black] Two teardowns for the price of one! We never gave you an original 3DS XL teardown (although we have [[Topic:Nintendo 3DS XL|many lovely guides|new_window=true]]), so here's the skinny on batteries, at least.
[* black] On the left is the New 3DS XL battery, with the "old" 3DS XL battery on the right.
[* black] It seems Nintendo didn't bother upgrading the battery in the New 3DS XL. Both models feature a 3.7 V, 1350 mAh battery rated at 6.5 Wh.
[* icon_note] Apparently the New 3DS XL isn't quite as new as we thought! The batteries are actually interchangeable between both 3DS XL models.
