After using the 1UP Card to clean all three GBA’s that I am working on it got rather dirty as expected. After visiting 1upcard.com I learned that you can clean and reuse the console cleaners. It says that you are supposed to take a cartridge cleaner (in this case a mini one) wetting the fluid side with a few drops of water, run it side to side about twenty times and then dry it with the other side in the same manner. I even used a fresh cleaner card and it stripped away the surface of the cartridge cleaner as seen in the picture. Now I’m out $15 for a product that I should have been able to use A LOT more than three times. I hope I just got a bad cartridge, but I’m not inclined to buy another seeing as how the very first one I purchased was so easily damaged following the company’s instructions... :(
I was able to use this item to get dirt out of both my Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance. I probably will be purchasing another one in the future for my super gameboy. I would definitely recommend this item.
Nothing too flashy, but it is an easy alternative to the credit card trick
1 UP Card cleaned the contacts very well
Easy, convenient and works well.
Works as intended perhaps even better than you might expect. It really opened my eyes to how dirty a system could be while still functioning. Highly recommended!
