Upgrade your Game Boy Pocket from its low powered AAA battery compartment to a drop-in wireless rechargeable battery pack. Designed and tested in the UK by a reputable modder and builder, the RetroSix CleanJuice Air for GBP is the ultimate upgrade to your console.

FEATURES:

  • Adds 2.6W watts of power giving you up to 9 hours of game play on a stock console!
  • Charge at any time using a regular wireless charger (including those that come with your phones) and even reverse charge the console from your phone if it supports reverse wireless charge. That means you can charge your GBP while you are out, using your phone battery.
  • Only supports wireless charging.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Connect battery to CleanJuice board (only fits in one way so don't worry).
  • If your shell is a RetroSix prestige shell, no modification is needed.
  • For regular shells, your shell will need heavy cutting out of the bottom of the battery compartment where the AAA batteries usually go so that its flat.
  • Place the CleanJuice board with the text "BP" showing at the top right of the board, on top of the battery with the battery "RetroSix" logo facing you and upright so it reads "RetroSix".
  • Rest the CleanJuice/battery combo into the battery compartment and push it in from the right side to the left, then push down the right side so that the CleanJuice fits and clicks into place. Put the back cover on the console, and you are ready to go.

INCLUDED:

  • 1x Cleanjuice PCB
  • 1x 700 mAh battery

NOTES:

  • Recommended to charge with 7.5W at lowest, and 20W for best results.
  • If you experience symptoms where red and orange lights come on, stay solid, then both go off in few minutes if NOT already fully charged, its likely too low power from the wireless charger.
  • No longer includes adhesive on the battery.

LED indicator key:

  • The light on the A/B button side of the console indicates that the module is receiving wireless power from your charger.
  • The light on the D-Pad side of the console indicates that the battery is currently charging. 
  • For further charging information, please view this video around the 10:15 minute mark.

    Does not work!!

    Does not charge. I even bought the HHL wireless charging pad to avoid compatibility issues and the module does not charge the battery. It just gets very very hot and doesn’t take the charge. Reached out to customer service and no one has acknowledged my complaint to either replace or refund. Don’t waste your time and money, wait for a more reliable product and manufacturer.

    Thanks for your review! I checked in with support and it looks like we did get into contact with you and sent you out a new module. :)

    Puts out good power, but doesn't fit perfectly.

    This unit is pretty good. The wireless charging works well, and unlike AAA's the output is enough to power an IPS screen and EZ Flash Jr flashcart (with a modern power regulator mod). I'm not sure the total playtime, but it is definitely enough for a good gaming session.

    The battery cover will bulge just a bit. It looks like the problem is the 2 surface mount capacitors on the right. Might be able to grind some small divots into the cover to add more clearance for them.

    broke during install

    the contacts on the board did not touch the battery or the gameboy, so i lightly bent them to fit. one of the contacts tore off at the pad with very little pressure being applied.

    2 stars because its a cool idea.

    I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at support@handheldlegend.com so we may get this resolved for you.

    does not charge-UPDATED

    The unit charges for about 10 seconds and then stops, so it does not work. It also looks different compared to the picture above and in any installation video I've seen.
    Update:
    Customer service was quick to assist with the issue, so now it is resolved after adjusting some prongs and taping the board down with kapton tape. The battery charges fully without issue. Make sure to align the board exactly even or else the battery and board will not fit correctly in the compartment, or the board will bow in the middle.

    I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at support@handheldlegend.com so we may get this resolved for you.

    Works great! Could fit a liiiittle bit better

    Even with the retrosix precut shell made for this battery pack, trimming of the battery door is required for a flush fit. Other than that works great and charges as expected, just wish it fit better!

    Great idea, poor execution.

    This would be great if it wasn't for two main reasons. Number one. Even after removing the two screws in the battery compartment, the mod still doesn't fit properly in the Retrosix shell. There's a significant bulge with the battery cover on. I also had to cut the shell further to clear some more components of the motherboard. What kills it for me though, is the battery discharges while the system is turned off. I tried Googling the problem but the only similar one I could find is for the old usb-c mod for the GBA. The fix for that one, (if it's the same for the AirJuice) requires peeling back the adhesive pad that the charge coil is adhered to and potentially damaging it. A battery mod is no good if it's dead every time you want to play. (Pictured is the extra cutting done to clear d2 and c33.)
