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
  • 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.


  • Install guideSimply de-solder the old power regulator wires and solder them in the same order to the CleanPower.


  • Created by RetroSix.
  • 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!

Works Great as Far as I Can Tell

Went through a full restoration and update of my old DMG that I have used in years. I don't know if I needed this or not, but the old unit would turn on but not display actually display anything. I also figured it was better safe that sorry to use this since I was doing a screen replacement and battery mod as well.

Easy to install with some basic soldering. Fits perfectly in place in the new shell that I got. No complaints at all.

New regulator works great!

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.
