One of the best and easiest upgrades you can do to your Game Boy Advance is put in this USB Type C PCB mod! Created by Robot_Retro, this PCB is built with a more efficient regulator and charging circuit to prevent overheating like many others on the market.  

It has come to our attention that unplugging the module while the battery is low and actively playing will power cycle the console. In this case save your game and turn off the console just in case prior to unplugging the module, just to be safe. 


  • Adds USB-C charging feature to GBA.
  • No soldering required.
  • Charge and play functionality.
  • Low power indicator. The GBA light will turn red when there is 10-15min of play time remaining.
  • Battery protection to prevent voltage dropping below 3.3v.
  • Supports USB C to C , and USB C to A.
  • Low heat generation.
  • Compatible with all common IPS shells on the market. OEM shells will need to be trimmed to accommodate the battery.
  • A fully modded console with an IPS screen, amplifier, and flash cart will yield around 9.5-10 hours battery life.
  • Comes with a 1500mAh battery.
  • Uses a negative polarity 10x30x48mm battery with a JST-ZH connector.
  • USB-C battery covers and charging cables sold separately.
  • For non-IPS and original shells battery housing modification is required. USB-C battery cover hole will need to be cut out.
  • For IPS ready shells, battery housing modification is not required. USB-C Battery cover hole will need to be cut.
  • V2 boards are now compatible with all USB-C battery covers.
  • If you have a V1 board, RetroSix shells and USB-C battery covers are a perfect match for this module. If you are planning to use either a FunnyPlaying or Hispeedido shell/ USB-C battery cover you will need to trim a tab on the upper left side of the USB-C battery over. 


  • 1x USB-C Module PCB
  • 1x Battery



  • Drill guide for regular battery covers: Clean_Juice_USB_C_Guide_1.stl
  • Install: Remove the GBA left hand side battery spring (optional) and place the battery in the battery housing. Place the battery in left side first then push down the right side so the springs are in contact with the GBA battery springs.

Easy to install and does the job!

Actually purchased for my son's Gameboy Advanced and it was super easy to install. It also helps my son now not have fear of running out of battery in the middle of a game. I highly recommend this product;

William Summers
Great for any GBA console

When I bought my modded GBA, it had a knock off Aliexpress rechargeable battery that after a full charge of not even playing it, was dead in 2 days. This battery is absolutely amazing. I've been playing my GBA nonstop since I got it and it has YET to even show a red light after a full charge. Highly recommend this for any GBA moding

Robot_Retro USB C battery mod

I’ve installed several of these in my modded GBA’s and haven’t had any issues. Battery doesn’t pop out and is a slick addition to the unit. Typical charge is lasting me about 4 hrs of continuous gameplay. Excellent alternative to AA batteries
