The New Nintendo 2DS XL Teardown!

Nintendo's brand new handheld console, the 2DS XL can play all your 3DS games in 2D. But what happens when we break out our tools and bring the 2DS into the teardown dimension?????

The Nintendo 2DS XL scored a 4 out of 10 on our Repairability Scale.
One the Upside:
The battery is fairly easy to swap out once you remove the back cover.

But on the downside:
The rear panel is secured by tri-point screws.
The headphone jack and charging connector are soldered to the motherboard.
The upper display is glued in place and requires prying that can potentially break the display.

The 2DS uses Tripoint screws which can be hard to find. But you can prepare yourself for most any repair with our Pro Tech Toolkit!
