    Hello,

    I have a contact in Japan who is able to get me some DS Lites, with the demand over there they're not cheap but i thought i'd offer to the people here at AVforums.

    The colours available would be the navy blue and the light blue (no white unfortunately) and the price would be around £155-160 delivered.

    Would anyone be interested? If i get enough interest i'll get some.

    You would need a step-up transformer not a step-down transformer.

    They use 120V AFAIK

    No you will need a step down transformer! I have a DS Lite and a 230v to 120v STEP DOWN plug.

    You can get then from ebay, or probably from Maplin, but not 100% sure.

    I had hoped that there would be more interest considering how hard these things are to get right now. I'll be looking over getting them this week and contacting the people who have expressed interest in this thread once i've received them.
