Take your original Game Boy Pocket 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 Pocket with a modern smooth and healthy power supply.
  • The CleanPower board 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!

NOTES:

  • 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.
  • If you are using a FunnyPlaying kit or original, in order to use the contrast wheel, you will just leave the old regulator fully in place and solder the CleanPower over top as in the method above. If your regulator is completely non-functional, you may not then have use of the contrast wheel with this regulator.
  • Created by RetroSix.

Works great! Install was a little difficult but the result was 100% worth it.

YT instruction was confusing but after sorting out that you do not need to clip any legs and solder as is on top of the stock regulator I got my dimming function back from my IPS display and functions as normal now and couldn’t be happier with it.

Made EZ-Flash JR. Work

Easy to install and was able to supply proper and consistent voltage to make my flash cart function in my GBP. Make sure to sever the VDD header if you are running an original or FP IPS. Highly recommended.

A power regulator worth the money!

This little power regulator was worth buying for a few reasons. The first was the price; it is a very affordable way to add needed power to a GBP for something like a TFT screen. The second is how easy it is to install. The instruction video accompanying it works perfectly. Last, I'd say the end result. It does exactly what it needs to without interfering with any other aspect of the GBP. Buy this if installing any sort of backlit screen in your system!

Excellent

Good regulator, does exactly what it supposed to and puts out a steady 5V. It is 100% compatible with the Funnyplaying IPS screen and it's feature that lets you control brightness with the contrast wheel. You just need to leave the old regulator in place but snip/remove the pin labeled Vdd, pin 6 on the screen side of the old regulator board. It's the top pin of the group of 3 pins, next to the capacitor and where the top yellow wire is soldered too in the pictures.
