Upgrade your Game Gear from AA batteries to a drop-in USB-C module with dual rechargeable battery packs. Designed and tested in the UK by a reputable modder and builder, the RetroSix CleanJuice for Game Gear is the ultimate upgrade to your console.


  • Adds 22.2 watt hours of power to give you upwards of 13 hours of game time!
  • Charge at any time using a regular USB-C cable.
  • Includes 3D printed spacer, apply this after installation.


  • Remove the old power board and insert the new CleanJuice power board.
  • Insert both batteries into the AA battery compartments and feed the wires through.
  • Connect the batteries to the CleanJuice board in any order (Connector only fits in one way). 
  • The battery with the longer cable should be placed in the compartment that is further away from the CleanJuice board. Refer to the product images to see the setup.
  • If you're using a regular / OEM Game Gear shell you will have to trim the battery compartment stumps to fit the batteries in the battery compartments. 
  • If you're using a RetroSix shell there is not need for modification.
  • Put the battery covers back on the console and you're ready to go.
  • Fully charge the CleanJuice and enjoy over 13 hours of battery life with the CleanScreen and CleanAmp mods installed.
  • Compatible with all Game Gear versions. Trimming may be required to plug in to VA4/VA5 units. See photos for where to trim if the connector does not fit.


  • 1x Sega Game Gear CleanJuice USB-C PCB
  • 1x Rechargeable battery with JST 2 POS CON and 7cm cable
  • 1x Rechargeable battery with JST 2 POS CON and 33cm cable
  • 1x Spacer




  • Created by RetroSix.
  • Module now includes battery contacts attached to PCB. Simply remove all shell battery contacts from the side of the battery housing where this PCB is inserted. Battery contacts attached to PCB will sit in place. The battery pack will then fit as normal.
  • The tiny switch located on the middle right of the board should be positioned to the left in order to enable the 34V for an original LCD. Otherwise it should be positioned to the right for any modern LCD kit, including CleanScreen series.

    AliExpress be damned this is the best Sega Game Gear power power mod available!

    Don't make the same mistake that I made and waste time and money with a cheap AliExpress USB-C PSB and battery combo. It would not hold a charge for more than 2hrs and would suddenly lose all battery power right in the middle of a game. The CleanJuice system took minutes to install and after a full charge of ~12hrs. it has given me at least 10 hrs of gameplay without requiring re-charge. NOTE* Once attached, the battery connectors are very difficult to remove without pulling them pads and all right off the PCB!

    A must for any Game Gear owner

    Let's face it, the Game Gear is awful when it comes to batteries. Even rechargeable AAs were getting annoying, and I was tired of being tethered to a wall plug, so I finally gave in. This drop in mod is a must. It seems pricey, but you will make up the cost after about 50 hours of game time if you do the math on battery cost per hour (in 2023).

    For those scared to open up their Game Gear: The Game Gear itself is nice and big inside and there's not much fiddly stuff like the Game Boys. You just unscrew a few things and run some wires. Some may cringe at needing to snip the original battery terminal wires and pull those out, but no soldering is required for those who are scared of doing that. The 3D printed USB-C port cover fits nicely (wish there was a seperate one that came in different colors!) And one charge lasts as long as going through four sets of AAs!
