Don't bother. Just get the regular replacement.

The holder is too small for the corresponding batteries, causing it either to flex or breaking the little tabs when the batteries are inserted. When the cartridges were closed, the holder made poor contact with the positive side of the battery, resulting in saves still not being retained. I had to solder some wires to make contact with the positive surface of the batteries defeating the point of using a battery holder instead of just directly soldering batteries to the contacts.

Thanks for your review! Please reach out to us at so we may look into this further with you.

Great battery holder

As far as a replaceable battery adapter these things are fantastic. Game boy and game boy color absolutely no problem. Game boy advance on the other hand is a little tight. You definitely want to make sure you have it soldered in flat. The case will bulge a little but still perfectly usable. Not much you can do without trimming the inside of the case though.


Like them but don't quite fit in gba cartridges.

Dustin Lunsford
doesn't work for gba games like ruby/sapphire/emerald

the plastic makes it slightly too tall so the casing doesnt close quite right and if you press on the cartridge at all while its running it resets the game.

Quick replacement

Bought two of them for my Pokemon Red and Gold version for the Game Boy Color now I can save once again

Great Replacement for OEM Battery

Bought this to replace the dead battery in my copy of Pokemon Emerald. Functions perfectly, however it is a little bit of a tight fit when closing the cartridge. Nothing too problematic, but worth mentioning. It may be possible to trim some of the holder down on the top to get it to fit better, but I'm not sure how far you'd need to go. Would still highly recommend if you're replacing your batteries.
