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.

Great for Making Upkeep Easy

I just installed these in 12 of my cartridges. I love them. I love that next time I need to replace the save batteries I won’t need to solder anything and I won’t need to buy any special batteries. Some carts barely fit these (carts where the battery contacts sit 45 degrees in relation to the rest of the circuitry) but even those were not difficult to install.

Small but Outstanding

Full disclosure: I ordered 8 of these, received 6. Contacted HHL Support and they shipped the missing 2 VERY quickly, even adding the Route shipping protection at their own expense. Their Support Team is Outstanding!! I am semi-experienced with soldering but I was able to remove the old pins from both GB and GBA games and install these battery holders with no problems. For the GB games that use 2025 batteries, these 1616 battery holders work well, you just need to have careful placement to create a solder bridge to the prongs on the holders. Overall, great product and amazing customer service. Will definitely be doing future mods with HandHeld Legends parts!

Works as intended

I used them in Gameboy/Gameboy Color carts. Works great, only downside is they’re a little pricey in my opinion.
