Upgrade your Game Boy Advance from its low powered AA battery compartment to a drop-in USB-C rechargeable battery pack.

Adds 6.3W of power to your GBA! Charge at any time using a regular USB-C cable, and even reverse charge the console from your phone if it supports power share. That means you can charge your GBA while you are out, using your phone battery. Designed and tested in the UK by RetroSix.


  • For regular and OEM shells: Battery housing modification required. USB-C Battery cover hole will need to be cut.

Light Indicator Key:

  • If the PG labeled light on the board is on, this means the USB cable is providing power to the system. This also means you can power your console from the USB without draining the battery - plug and play option.
  • If the CHG labeled light on the board is on, this means the USB is charging the battery. When it goes off, the battery is fully charged.
  • Both indicator lights will be on when module is charging. When module is fully charged, only the PG light will remain.
  • If you connect a USB cable and the PG light does not turn on, your cable or power supply are faulty.

      AA Batteries…..Don’t Make Me Laugh

      Bought this for my modded GBA. Best purchase ever. This little battery just drops in and you’re good to go. I have been playing the last three nights and haven’t had to charge it yet. Highly recommend.

      A Major Upgrade

      Highly recommend this for anyone using their gba for extended periods. This has saved me on batteries and is very easy to install.

      I placed mine in an OEM shell and purchased the precut battery door. Trimming the shell was not difficult and required only a hobby knife.

      Fantastic and easy to install

      Super easy to install all you need is a shell that matches with the normal shell you have but one with a usb c slot and just plug in and run it and it works like normal

      a MUST have accessory

      rechargeable battery accessories for portables are most definitely not a new concept. the GBA had plenty of them back in the day.
      this is the best modern iteration (ive tried this and an old version of one from helder), just make sure you get a battery door for it.
      the white solder mask on the PCB matches the soldermask on the GBA PCB which is a nice touch if your using a transparent or translucent shell

      the only issue i have with it are the battery tabs. the ones used are for coin cells (look up "36-122-ND" on digikey. digikey is an electronics component supplier),
      the issue they have is that due to the shape of the contact, they have a tendency to catch on the shell when you try and remove them. its not a hard catch and don't make removal hard, it just a stopping point for the removal.

      one tip. only use the pre applied tape to attach the battery to the PCB. do use the other side and adhere the battery to the case as it makes removal quite a bit harder, making future servicing the GBA much harder then it needs to be.
