    I carved it up to fit a USB-C, but it's hella sick!

    Richard Allin
    Crooked screen placement

    Got this shell to perfectly pair with my IPS funny playing screen which did not fit perfectly centred and required me to trim the small posts inside by 0.1mm at a time to get it to line up, also had to use small bits of cardboard to make it fit cleanly inside the glass screen lens that was purchased from this site. Ended up getting it perfectly centred in the end but now can only play for 2.5 hours with the IPS before the gameboy just shuts down with little warning except a slightly dimmer power LED, so I find myself saving constantly, using energizer lithium batteries, screen looks great but doesn’t look any better except the size when playing original gameboy games than my SP-101 that lasts 14hours and has a rechargeable USB-C battery. So glad I kept a non-modded pocket.

    simply awful

    quality of shell manufacture is extremely low. no internal fixtures to hold screen in place, all screws (including those provided by the manufacturer) do no fit into the shell assembly. Do not purchasee

    Thanks for your review! Please reach out to us at so we may look into this further with you!

    Good shell

    Very happy with purchase.

    Great shell!

    Almost identical to the original shells. The space for the IPS screen is bigger than the screen so you have to test the fit before you commit. Overall great product.

All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return. If a backlight/LCD is returned and shows any signs of having been installed, it will not be eligible for a refund.
