I guess I forgot the product description or something but when I went to look for installation tutorials I had to stop and review. Where was the step where I connected the recharging board to the battery contacts? Oh. OH!
Yep. Just stick the battery to the board. Click the extra battery contacts out of the shell and pop! You’re in and ready to go. That’s with the new IPS ready shell. But still. Mind blown.
I love that I can now use a USB cable to charge the battery rather than have to use AA batteries all the time. The install in the shells that support it took all of 10 seconds. It's a bit more work using an OEM shell as you need to remove the bits of plastic that divide the batteries.
This is a no brainer mod and works perfectly. So glad I’m not having to swap rechargeable AA’s out anymore.
So far, perfect! Great fit and easy to install with funnyplaying case that is designed for this. Just remember to remove the old AA contacts before closing the shell line I didn't. I installed this on Tuesday evening, charged to full And have been paint all week, played and beat all my old favorites (done multiple times), played and tried a ton of other games and have not needed a charge yet and it's now Sunday. This is with a funnyplaying ips screen and a everdrive gb x5. Plus usb-c charging??
I refer to this as a "ghetto mod". First you have to damage your battery bay (and compartment if you didn't buy a replacement back) and they tell you do damage your springs as well. You can get around this by pressing them in as you insert the battery pack and chintzy little board. The contacts just graze and snag against the two outer springs.
Of course you might not know that because there aren't any instructions and the site relies on others to do their work for them with instructions and tutorials. Overall, I don't like it at all. It's cheaply made, the charging port is in the weirdest position, it doesn't provide contact that I can feel at ease about and you have to damage your case.They definitely need to put that in bold here. I wasn't aware of this and overlooked it when ordering. If you open up the back of your Gameboy it applies stress to the lone standing USB port. Just a terrible mod in my opinion. I give it two stars because it charges but I really don't like it or feel safe having it installed the way it just clips in. Not worth the price or the destruction. I can see spending $15 (including shipping) at most for something this low quality.
