Awesome option for lighting your gba

Great option for lighting your gba if you can't afford a backlight! I bought 2 because it was on sale for $1 and I'm glad I did because I didn't cure the loca right the first time. Great product 10/10

Turned out great

This mod turned out great. Make sure your alignment is right by aligning the top of the light with the top of the LCD. Mine was a couple mm off so I had to shave off the bottom support on the case to get the whole thing in. I think this turned out in my favor though as the lights were then a couple more mm under the plastic. I also placed black tape over where the metal strip used to be, as my kit did not come with any extra silver tape.

Soldering was simple, but the parts are very small so be careful. I replaced the speaker too with the aftermarket speaker. All-in-all well worth the time.

Oh one last thing, yes this isn't as nice as a backlit solution, but if you play in ambient light/outdoors, the color really pops out and the front light gives you just that little bit of extra oomph you need.

4 stars // product is decent to good.

The front lite is a cheap option that can help you see what you are playing on your GBA, without fear of glare or lost worm lite. The build wasn’t too difficult and it was my first build/solder job ever. Plus for 5-10 dollars the experience was fun. Although if you do have an option and don’t really worry about the money unlike me, a back lite screen for 50-60 dollars is the better choice. The front lite has a bumpy surface which further distorts the small screen even with it being illuminated. If you are desperate for a lit screen and you are minding your dollars this is a decent-good option.


Failure on my part

After installing my front light and fresh screen, i turned on my GBA and only the front light worked but my game boy does not turn on... not sure why!!!

Mod works great! My only complaint is you guys should also sell loca glue on your site and have it as a recommended purchase when a customer is purchasing the front light. I was a little disappointing after installing the mod since without the loca glue applied it’s very hard to see the graphics, but otherwise no complaints!
