INSTRUCTIONS:

  • 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.
  • Board has two LED's - USB and CHARGE. 
  • The tiny switch located on the&nbsp;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.

DOCUMENTATION:

NOTES:

Light Indicator Key:

  • If the USB 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 USB light will remain.
  • If you connect a USB cable and the USB light does not turn on, your cable or power supply are faulty.

WARNINGS:

Risk of fire if improperly charged or if battery is punctured. Only use protected power sources along with power delivery (PD) compliant cables and chargers. Using uncertified hardware may result in more than 5v being delivered to your CleanJuice product. Damage caused by unsupported hardware voids our return/exchange policy. Examples of supported chargers:

  • Nintendo Switch charger
  • MacBook Pro type C charger
  • Samsung type C charger
  • Google Pixel charger
  • USB A to USB C cable (certified only!)

Risk of fire is also possible if PCB is used with AA batteries or battery packs are inserted backwards.

    Game Gear Rechargeable USB-C Review

    I ordered this item and it came with a broken piece, the company sent out another without hesitation. The mod works great. My only real complaint is the the batteries bulge the battery compartment doors a tad. But overall a solid upgrade.

    Everything works great But...

    I got this power board with some other items. Installation was straight forward and simple. I powered it up and it worked great on my V0 Gamegear. I've played about 6 hours without having to charge so far. Nice product. But.. it was missing the 3D printed USB-C cover... I don't suppose there's any chance of getting one mailed to me?

    great product but they forgot to send one (not critical) part

    The battery pack and the charging port works like charm, the only downside is that they didn’t sent me the type-c charging port plastic enclosure

    Plug was backwards on the board

    After I installed this board my Game Gear would not power up. I thought it was because the cable connecting the motherboard to the Clean Juice board wasn't seated all the way, since it was a very tight fit and the plastic on the Clean Juice socket seemed warped.
    So I removed all the white plastic around the pins on the board but when I plugged it in the way it was meant to be, it still wouldn't power up. Then I decided to turn the motherboard cable around and plug it into the Clean Juice board backwards.
    Lo and behold it worked!
    So whoever installed the outlet on the Clean Juice board, soldered it on backwards.

    I removed 2 stars. The board works beautifully now, but only because I had to do a lot of modifying of my own.

    Thanks for your feedback! We haven't heard of this issue before, but we will pass this information off to the supplier for their review.

    Way better than AA batteries

    The package is easy to install and works quite well. Taking off one star because the power cable from the motherboard to the clean juice board is not an exact fit. I thought I had it seated completely but would only get a blank screen when powering on. After a quick search, found this is common with this mod on some Game Gear revisions. Some people had to remove the plastic around the power connector on the clean juice board. Fortunately, I just had to wiggle mine in a bit to get it properly seated.
