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 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.
Installation guide here. 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!
Our on-line store is open 24/7 and we ship Monday through Friday, excluding some holidays. Most products ship within 1 business day from our warehouse in Pennsylvania USA. Orders will be shipped in the order they are received. Please select a shipping speed according to your needs.

In my opinion, a new regulator is vital to any DMG that you are adding mods to as the original regulator was not built to output enough amperage for anything other than the stock system. This one in particular will allow you to continue to use the stock screen, whereas there are some on the market that only output 5v which is only usable if you're going with a new IPS display. Overall, the CleanPower regulator board works great, fits nicely, and is cleanly designed. I've installed 4 so far and I'm very happy with them.
Easy to install and ensures stable power for all future upgrades
I’m a fan of preserving the original look and feel of Gameboy’s. I’ve done several mods to mine all the same. But this one is a must. It’s good for modding, but I think it’s good for just restoring too.
As a kid I always thought the contrast fading was bad batteries. But I definitely see it with fresh batteries and can see now it’s definitely a fault of the GB itself.
This totally fixed it. It was easy to install. And I’m hopeful it will extend the life of my Gameboy.
Here’s a video with some gameplay of DKL2 before and after the install. I think you can easily see the contrast fade even just while jumping in a quiet portion of the level. I was using the same new batteries. In both attempts.
This was very easy to install despite my poor soldering skills. I enjoy how much more efficient and cool (temperature) it is than the OEM part that it replaced.
There isn't much to say about this item other than it works perfectly! If you are planning to use an IPS display, it is highly recommended to replace the original power board with this one. When installing, be sure to avoid tinning the pads on the board prior to inserting the wires. Tin the wire ends and put all four through the new board, then apply the solder to the wires and board. It's an easy job.
I bought this regulator board because my backlighted DMG keeps overheating.
Now it works seamlessly and can bear the additional load from the backlight
