Take your original Game Boy Color restoration to the next level with the custom built, ultra-efficient and clean power regulator designed in-house by RetroSix.

  • The CleanPower replaces the original power regulator PCB of the Game Boy Color with a modern smooth and healthy power supply. This provides a clean, stable and efficient 5V line to the system to keep the lifespan of your console at it's best.
  • To install, see images. Simply de-solder the old power regulator and solder the CleanPower in the same place as the original regulator.
  • The input range of the CleanPower on VIN is 2.5V to 12V. This gives modders a much wider range if they want to install 2S lipo kits!


  • The CleanPower only supports most modern screens and does not provide the voltages for the original screens. If you want to use the original screen simply leave the original regulator in place. You will need to cut the top right pin on the original regulator (Pin 7 when looking at the console from the button side. See photos for details), however this will vary by user. Then the old regulator will supply the LCD voltages, and the CleanPower will supply the bulk system power for the console.
  • Created by RetroSix.

works great

works as advertised.

It's all right with me.

It's all right with me.

Works great!

I picked up an old GBC with a dead speaker. After replacing the speaker the sound was still very low. So I replaced the volume pot and added an amp. That got the sound up but with a lot of hum. I also installed an IPS screen and together it was glitchy and noisy. The power regulator fixed it right up, provided that I use lithium batteries. (Fresh alkalines are good but get weird as they lose charge.)

A must for mods

I paired this with a RetroGlow, new cap, IPS Q5 LCD, and a CleanAmp Pro. It's a must for anything outside of maybe a screen mod. Adding anything else will cause boot loops, cut-outs, dimmed screens, etc. Super easy to install. I chose to take out the original regulator and put this one in.


Not bad. Works great with the laminated Funny Playing IPS kits. Don't need to keep the OEM regulator on.


More than enough to provide power to the Q5 Display! YouTube video placeholder
