Default Can 3DS withstand AC temperature?

I was charging my 3DS XL when all of a sudden, my grandmother accidentally put AC on with I think around 26 degree Celsius. Does this destroy the battery life and all as it was around an hour or so while it was charging and its nothing extremely cold so can it handle that kind of temperature. Also I should note that the 3DS XL wasn't on at all.

what is wrong with you? this is your most ridiculous thread by far. either you're just the most paranoid person on this planet or you aren't being serious at all which actually makes more sense.

go home, artwark.

Look I just want to make sure that my XL doesn't end up powering off all of a sudden ok? Cause I hear that you're not suppose to place the 3DS in extreme temperatures and all.

Unless you live in antartica or DK's frozen island like in tropical freeze, or live in a dry dry desert.....your 3ds will be fine so you dont need to worry like crazy and just chill a bit.

I live in Greece, but you probably already knew/noticed that. I can confirm it withstands temperatures ranging from 10 to well over 30, but seriously, every electronic is supposed to withstand sub zero temperatures as well as temperatures close to 50.

You probably have different temperatures to worry about in India...

Anyway, if you are so concerned about the durability of the 3DS I suggest to sell it on eBay. It's less entertaining, I know. But definitely more durable, handle temperature swings more easily and has no hinges or other components to worry about.

Are you serious?
My 3ds has been through cold and heat, it gets to about 90+ fahrenheit (32+ celsius) in Florida sometimes, and in Italy 0 and below Celsius (38 and below fahrenheit)
