Upgrade your Game Boy Advance from its low powered AA battery compartment to a drop-in USB-C rechargeable battery pack.

Adds 6.3Wh of power to your GBA! 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 GBA while you are out, using your phone battery. Designed and tested in the UK by RetroSix.


  • For regular and OEM shells: Battery housing modification required. USB-C Battery cover hole will need to be cut.
  • For IPS ready shells: Battery housing modification is not required. USB-C Battery cover hole will need to be cut or you may purchase a USB-C battery cover here.
  • USB-C battery 
  • Uses a 1500mAH battery. (Recent change temporarily)
  • No soldering required.
  • Compatible with Qi receivers - modification required.
  • Connect battery to CleanJuice board (only fits in one way)
  • Give the CleanJuice a full charge and enjoy well over 14 hours of gaming even with a fully IPS + Audio Amp modded console!
  • USB-C battery covers sold separately.
  • USB-C charging cable sold separately.

Light Indicator Key:

  • If the PG labeled light on the board is on, this means the USB cable is providing power to the system. This also means you can power your console from the USB without draining the battery - plug and play option.
  • If the CHG labeled light on the board is on, this means the USB is charging the battery. When it goes off, the battery is fully charged.
  • Both indicator lights will be on when module is charging. When module is fully charged, only the PG light will remain.
  • If you connect a USB cable and the PG light does not turn on, your cable or power supply are faulty.

    • 1x 1500 mAH battery

      So dope!!!

      Great packaging, fast shipping. Awesome modification. Fits nice and tight. Works great with upgraded ips screens since AA batteries wear out in like a week.

      Easy but not that easy

      Once all together and working, wow like I haven't run it out yet and have been playing casually for about three weeks, like not even gone into the red yet. (On backlit screen will attach pictures)
      The install is easy once your shell is prepped and all you need to do is press the copper tabs to one of the battery hookup.
      The sticky tab ensures you only have to mess with it once and then pretty much never need to open it again.
      To start there is a bit of cutting to fit the usb-c battery into the GBA You'll probably want a flush cutter, also (could just be me) but the slot in the back cover did not line up and had to be filed, it was also the wrong colour but was painted to fix.
      Very happy with it and can be done fairly quickly, it adds no weight to the GBA as mine sits at 175g
      Also for the price point compared to other battery mods it's great
      8.5/10 (mostly over the cover)

      Super easy upgrade

      This battery works great! if you have an upgrade-ready shell, no trimming is required. just plug and play. It was super easy to install. Love it!

      Very nice

      I like the convenience of a rechargeable battery the USB-C.

      Avoid imitation

      Avoid imitations, always opt for this version of RetroSix. I was using a low quality Chinese and complicated installation. This one from Retrosix has excellent quality and installation that doesn't even take 2 minutes. It met my expectations, I just hope the battery drains while not using it.

      Hate AA batteries?

      Definitely recommend if you are tired of changing batteries all the time. Easy to install, charges quickly and lasts for a long time. Thank you Handheld Legend!
