Quality/Usability : The Cyclone Charger Stand is a fancy way of charging your DS rather than have your DS lay there. No power adapter/cable is included so you'll have to use your own NDS wall adapter or a USB cable that charges the DS Lite.

To charge your DS Lite in the Cyclone Charger Stand, you'll have to turn the DS upside down (USB port facing down). On the inside of the stand, is a USB plug that inserts into the DS. Inserting the DS into the USB plug takes a little of trial and error. Once the DS is inserted and a power cable is inserted into the stand, the DS will start to charge. The Cyclone Charger Stand lights up in red it is charging. Charging time is the same amount as if you were to just insert the cable into the DS. Unfortunately, the only way to tell if your DS Lite is done charging is by looking at the LED on your DS. If the orange light is lit, it means it is charging. If it is off, that means it is completely. The red LED on the Cyclone Charger Stand will still be lit up regardless if the DS is done charging or not.

On the front of the stand is a button. This helps with the removal of the DS Lite but pushing it up. If you have a case or silicone skin on your DS, you will have to remove it in order for it to fit into the Cyclone Charger Stand.

Conclusion : Overall, the Cyclone Charger Stand is just a fancy way of charging your DS. All it does is charge your DS in an upright position with a fancy red LED. Would have been nice if there was a green LED to state that it was done charging. Would of also been nice if there was a pink and black version.
