DreamGear Nintendo DS Lite 17 in 1 Bundle Review

This time out, we are going to be reviewing the DreamGear Nintendo DS Lite 17 in 1 Bundle. This kit not only has everything that you need for travelling with your DS Lite, but it also has some extras to help you protect and maintain your unit, as well as a couple of other added bonuses. Let’s take a look at exactly what is included before we get down to the details.

With this DreamGear Nintendo DS Lite 17 in 1 Bundle you will get:


  • Table Top Charging Dock
  • Car Charger
  • Earbuds
  • Carrying Case
  • Stylus
  • 2 Sets of Upper and Lower Screen Protectors
  • 3 Game Cases
  • 3 Mini Screen Cleaners
  • Wrist Lanyard
  • Carry All Tote Bag
  • Choice of Color (Polar White, Cobalt Blue, or Pink)

The carrying case is made of a hard material, making it excellent for protecting your DS Lite from scratches, dings, and dust. The attachable wrist lanyard is a nice bonus, allowing you to keep the case on your wrist, much like the case for a digital camera or something similar.

Although the case doesn’t have much room for storing anything other than your DS Lite, the included carry all tote bag does hold everything else. It would be nice to have everything in one carrying case, but with so much here, it could end up being quite bulky.

The tabletop charging dock is a great feature, and one that we haven’t seen with many of these kits. It sits atop a table, obviously, and you can just set your DS Lite inside of it when you need to charge it up. If you are on the go and can’t access wall power, however, you are still covered thanks to the included car charger.

Earbuds are a nice inclusion here, allowing for private gaming so as not to be a nuisance whether out in public, or on a long car trip with your parents. The frequency and ease with which a stylus is misplaced makes the inclusion of a spare stylus a nice feature as well.

There are three included protective game cases here, which is great for keeping your cartridges guarded against potentially damaging dust as you travel about with your games.

Speaking of protection, in addition to the carrying case and game cases, the DreamGear Nintendo DS Lite 17 in 1 Bundle also includes two sets of screen protectors for both upper and lower screens. These are a must for protecting your two screens from dirt, dust, fingerprints, and worst of all, scratches.

Finally, the kit includes 3 “mini screen cleaners” which are basically little cleaning sponges that are safe to use on your Nintendo DS Lite’s screens. They are a nice bonus and will help you to maintain your unit.

As you can see, there is an awful lot that comes to this bundle, and every bit of it is extremely useful. With a suggested retail price of $24.99 (though most retailers were in the $19.99 range, even better,) this is actually a great value. We couldn’t find any problems with this bundle whatsoever. The DreamGear Nintendo DS Lite 17 in 1 Bundle is definitely recommended.
