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 or FunnyPlaying IPS kits. If you want to use the original screen or a FunnyPlaying IPS kit 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 IPS / amp mods.
  • Created by RetroSix.

More than enough to provide power to the Q5 Display! YouTube video placeholder
A little extra juice

Powers my ips with lcd buttons + everdrive with no audible hum. I did the install noted in NOTES where you cut Pin 7 for use with IPS screens. Some tiny soldering required, but I was successful after a few passes.


Out with the old, in with the new one! Q5 2.0 IPS screen works flawlessly without the old regulator! Had to install mine from the front of the motherboard in place of the old one, because I have a FunnyPlaying lipo 2000 MaH recharge-able battery mod sitting on the back side where this CleanPower regulator would go if you're still running the factory power regulator. Gives it a clean sleek look on the inside too. :) YouTube video placeholder

Easy to install. I used this as a replacement for a bad oem regulator

Scott M.
GBC power regulator

Old regulator had a damaged coil and needed to be replaced. Tried this regulator as a replacement with the drop in smaller generic ips screen kit. Works perfect for me. I reused the pins from the old regulator so i could install it easier for me but i needed to cut the shell to make it fit this way. Don't reuse the old pins. You don't need to, i thought i did but still got it to work with my mistake. Perfect replacement.


The products were great. Only downfall I felt was the lack of instructions (I’m new to modding/repair), but a lil googling took care of that. Keep up the great work.
