Upgrade your Game Boy Original from its low powered AA battery compartment to a drop-in USB C rechargeable battery pack. Adds 11.1 watts of power (compared to 2 watt for the largest AA batteries available) giving you almost 6 times the game time!

Charge at any time using a regular USB C cable, and even reverse charge the console from your phone if it supports power share. That means you can charge your GB while you are out, using your phone battery.

  • Connect battery to CleanJuice board (only fits in one way so don't worry).
  • If your shell is a RetroSix ABS shell, no need to do anything. If it's regular shell, trim the 3 battery line stump at the bottom of the battery compartment where the AA batteries usually go so that its flat.
  • Place battery into shell with the wire coming out at the bottom left corner, and the battery pushing the top left spring in.
  • Push the battery down at the bottom end.
  • Place CleanJuice board on top of battery and push the springs down to make contact with top battery springs.
  • Use a RetroSix USB C battery cover (sold separately, in various colors), or cut a hole for the USB C port using a 4mm drill bit and drill 3 holes in the center of the battery cover as shown in the image.
  • Put the back cover on the console, and you are ready to go.
  • Give the CleanJuice a full charge and enjoy almost 30 hours of gaming on an original console on a single charge!

Fairly straightforward

Trimming the 3 battery lines from the bottom of the compartment took a while but was easy enough. If you are buying a new shell already I'd recommend getting a pre-trimmed one to save some time. I like the charging indicator lights as well. nice touch.

Really excited to have a long lasting rechargeable battery for my DMG!

Great battery, minor design issue

Overall a great battery that's easy to install. The one issue I had was that when unplugging, it tended to pull the battery/board upward. I had to glue a small piece of plastic to the lower-right corner of the PCB (about the same height as the battery connector). It keeps the board in place when unplugging the USB-C cable, as the plastic then touches the battery door. I'd suggest building in something to help with this on future iterations.

Excellent product

I purchased the CleanJuice DMG XL along with a backplate that included the USB cutout. It was easy to install and has provided hours of play on a single charge. No more futzing with single-use batteries!

DMG Battery

Works perfect! My DMG had some trouble starting up with anything but fully charged AA's. This fixed it. The battery pack provides stable power and runs a funnyplay IPS screen along with a everdrive just fine. The mod to the shell is simple and can be done with flush cutters. Had some trouble with the battery cover, mine fit once I put the type c port into the battery cover first, then slide the battery in.
