Take your original Game Boy restoration to the next level with the custom built, ultra-efficient and clean power regulator designed in-house by RetroSix.

The CleanPower replaces the original power regulator PCB of the Game Boy with a modern smooth and health power supply.

Perfect if your old power board is dying or dead. Common symptoms include faded screen (lack of or no contrast), failure to load games, freezing or total non-power on conditions.

The original power regulator board is 30 year old technology; it is very inefficient, very unstable and does not do the Game Boy electronics any good.

During our journey of restoration perfection at RetroSix, we reverse engineered and analyzed lots of the Game Boy's original components. The power regulator board was one of the worst parts about the original GameBoy, with various faults.

  • The 5V supply cannot handle the system load and constantly drops. This means the system is running from a heavily rippled and fluctuating power supply
  • The negative voltage line for the LCD is on its limits of current supply and wears away over time, causing a lack of contrast and eventual dead power board
  • The entire regulator PCB is noisy, which injects a lot of unwanted ground noise to the board, causing many issues including audio quality loss

The CleanPower board by RetroSix addresses all of those issue, providing a clean, stable and efficient 5V and negative LCD voltage supply to the system to keep the lifespan of your console at it's best.

To install, see images. Simply de-solder the old power regulator wires and solder them in the same order to the CleanPower.

The input range of the CleanPower on VIN is 2.5V to 12V. This gives modders a much wider range if they want to install 2S lipo kits!

Stabilizes Power Regulation with upgraded screen

The DC Regulator board removed the power fluctuations I could see in the DMG-001 Gameboy power light when using battery power, which is exactly what I wanted to fix.

Highly recommend if you are installing an aftermarket screen.

Never received anything

I ordered weeks ago and never received anything. Stuff was meant to be a birthday present. So thanks for nothing.

In the end I ordered at RetroSix from GB. They are fast and reliable.
