Hi,

I've looked over the wealth of GBA "starter accessory kits" and I'm
thoroughly confused. ;-) I figure I need:
1) Headphones and an adaptor
2) A carrying case that holds the GBA and some games
3) Can't say I find a car charger compelling, but I wouldn't mind having
one.

There are so many brands, and at the cheap prices for some of them, I have
to think that some of the bundles contain mostly junk.

Can any of you recommend accessories and manufacturers that you're happy
with?

Thanks,

Steve

Most accessories are pretty useless unless you have a specific need for
them; if you want to use headphones with an SP, you need the headphone
adapter; if you travel in a car alot (and I mean a lot alot considering
the length the SP battery lasts), you may need a car charger.
Bags are more multipurpose. I actually use a Pelican bag intended for
the original GBA for my SP; it holds the SP and the charger and a good
number of games.
If you have a Media Play near you, check them out; they had various
video game accessories on sale recently, including a $30 SP starter pack
for $7.50.

I recently got my GBA SP and don't have an of the accessories, yet! I think
some kind of bag would come in handy, especially since the games are so
small, they could be easy to lose! Don't know if you would need a
specialized bag though, but if you could get one at a good price...
Since the battery lasts a long time, I wouldn't think you would need a car
charger, unless you will be playing in the car for a LONG time! I have an
adapter that plugs into my car lighter and has a regular electrical plug on
the other end. I go camping sometimes, so this is good for electricity on
the road. It isn't cheap, but a good tool to have....

If you want to play with headphones, you will need the adaptor for that....

Have fun!
