A replacement battery LED for your Nintendo Game Boy DMG, Game Boy Color, or Game Boy Pocket. Included resistor for better compatibility. LED plastic is slightly opaque in nature. This will help diffuse the light for fully illuminated LED.

These LEDs can be used for a variety of game consoles such as N64 and GameCube as well. 


  • 3K ohm resistor included to reduce brightness (For DMG).
  • Simply replace the old LED with a new one for the GBP.
  • Use a 3K or even 4K ohm resistor to reduce even more if you desire (DMG).
  • Use these LEDs for cases as well.
  • Compatible with the DMG, GBC, and GBP.
  • Rainbow LED. See it in action here.
  • Solder Wick will help for an easier install.


  • 1x LED
  • 1x 3K ohm resistor


    • Open your Game Boy by removing the 6 tri-wing screws on the back panel. Also remove the Phillips head screws connecting the front PCB to the front shell. Separate the two units and locate the LED. Use a solder wick to remove the solder around the led leads. Remove the LED. 
    • You will need to replace the "R1" resistor located near the top of the PCB. Use your soldering wick again to remove the excess solder on the front of the PCB. Replace this resistor with a 2K-3K ohm resistor to reduce the brightness of the LED. Otherwise, it would be much too bright. Solder the LED and the resistor in place and you are off to the races. Close her up and enjoy.


    • LED will most likely be a clear white upon arrival. It will show the chosen color once installed. You can use a multimeter to test the LED color before install.

    I love these LEDs. I got color charging and green. The green looks great but the color changing ones convinced me to put them into my Gameboy Color. I used a slow changing LED for the battery light in front and a fast change one as the charge indicator on my McWill charging kit.


    Great LED. Wish it had the little flat edge so you knew right away the orientation it was supposed to go in, but it’s a great replacement for your custom game boy with a little work. A+ product.
