A common issue with the original Game Gear is the power board failing, the capacitors, transistors or the main IC. Although it can be fixed it has many issues such as a non-standard DC jack that is different per country, it cannot switch power between batteries and DC without resetting the console, and it is old and inefficient.

The CleanPower for the Game Gear works on all Game Gear versions and just drops in without soldering. Simply unscrew your console, unplug the old DC board and plug in the new CleanPower board.


  • USB-C power and can run from the original batteries of the console also. With support for hot-swapping between USB-C and batteries, when the batteries start running low you can plug in a USB-C cable and continue gaming without interruption or power down.
  • The low power LED that flashes on the Game Gear when the batteries are low will not flash when running off USB-C so it does not distract you from gaming while on USB.
  • Will run without any batteries inserted if you want to run your Game Gear directly from USB-C only (or perhaps a 20,000mAh battery bank for an entire 24 hours of game play!).
  • As well as replicating the original power supply requirements the CleanPower GG ramps up its power rails faster, giving cleaner power on for the system.
  • On board power LEDs give clear indications when the power is OK and going to the Game Gear (green LED) and an LED indicating when the USB-C cable that is plugged in is providing power to the board (orange LED).
  • The CleanPower GG comes with a 3D printed support to cover the hole between the shell and the USB-C connector for a clean finish.
  • When using USB-C you can use Power Delivery chargers, standard USB to USB-C chargers such as the generic phone chargers, or any USB power device that can deliver at least 1.5A. Typically the Game Gear needs a boost over 1.5A for a short period like 100ms. Most USB power chargers are ok with a short over current burst so 1.5A power supplies are ok. If you have issues with lower power 1.5A supplies, use a USB-C power supply that can deliver 15W (3A).


  • VA4/5 models require trimming of the connector on the CleanPower PCB. Please see this video which shows the CleanJuice PCB (same connector as on the CleanPower) at the 16 minute mark. This video shows the proper way to trim, modify, and insert the connectors to work for this model.
  • Shells or Bracket may need minor trimming/modification to ensure perfect closure after installation with bracket.
  • This board does not charge batteries. For a rechargeable battery and power solution use the CleanJuice Module.

It didn't fix my problem but the part itself was good.

The part I ordered worked as intended, but my Game Gear itself had a damaged motherboard that this unfortunately didn't fix. I cannot say whether it works or not as my problem lies in the main GG board itself, however I may place it in a different Game Gear in the future.

Made a USB power bank pack!

It's a big power bank but it lasts forever till the next charge of the power bank!

Jeff Pozniak
Superb easy mod

Nice plug and play unit that only took a couple minutes to drop in. A perfect fit and works great! Now I no longer have to carry around the clunky old wall adapter to play my Game Gear. Highly recommended.


Superb product !

Kurtis Beckerle
A must have mod

Showed up early and was easy to instal! Clean and well regulated power plus a usb c connector and a very nice 3d printed bracket for it to sit in.

Fernando Deschapell
Great product

The board works as expected. Worked flawlessly! The ease of having usb-c is great. No more trying to find space on my power strip to fit the power brick for the genesis model 2 to use on the game gear!
