  • At the lowest brightness, the kit power consumption is 0.15w. Less power consumption than other IPS kits. 
  • It has the same display effect as AGS-101, without ghosting, better colors and brighter backlight.
  • Ideal if you want a brighter display, but want to keep the original pixel size. 
  • Natural pixel grid scan lines
  • It has a memory brightness function and can adjust the partial display window.
  • Adjustable brightness
  • Suitable with OEM/Standard sized screen lenses

  • 1x 32 pin ribbon
  • 1x 40 pin ribbon
  • 3x Wires

      • Shell modification requires cutting the inside of shell but not the viewing window.
      • If you adjust the display window, you need to weld the select L R key.
      • Good viewing angle, but not as prominent as IPS.
      • The original lens can be used, the lens is not included in the kit.
      • The IPS lens window is too large and not perfect. It is not recommended to use it together.
      • If you experience screen flicker after installing, adjust the screen potentiometer on the back of the console.
      • 40 pin motherboards will need the C54 capacitor removed.
      • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance.

          • Test before installation! When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit. A dry run or test fit means the kit is not installed in the shell. This includes the use of adhesives, brackets, and any performed soldering. 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.
          • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

            Great! Worked perfectly and great guide!

            Amazing! If you like retropixel mode, this is the screen you want!

            I was not sure about which screen to use in my GBA. I love the look of the retropixel modes on the DMG and GBC IPS screens however the GBA IPS screens all seem to lack this feature. I tried the IPS V2 and was not happy with the results. It did not have that retro look. I ended up getting the TFT kit and it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for. The screen resolution is the same as OEM and the clarity is great. An installation tip is to adjust the screen using the **** on the rear of the PCB to the right of the game slot after install. It will fine tune the display and get rid of any scan lines.


            Good quality

            Absolutely amazing

            I want an OEM modded GBA and this felt like the closest option available with a backlight. I have had the IPSv2 and wasn't thrilled about it. This kit is outstanding and would recommend it to anybody on the fence. Installation wasn't difficult and the screen re-alignment functionality is great. By far my favorite GBA mod I have done so far, highly recommended.

            Love it

            The best mix of modern but still nostalgic! Easy install.
