The following tutorial will guide you through the steps to install 5v Voltage Regulator as a power source for Game Boy Backlights.

We assume you have basic soldering skills, that you know how to clean surfaces before soldering and that you already know how to add a backlight to a Game Boy. This guide will only instruct you on how to integrate the voltage regulator in your mod.

The wires we use are 30 AWG Silicone-Cover Stranded-Core.

NOTE: that the information given here is provided to the best of our knowledge at the moment of writing and could change over time. Anything you might do is at your own risk and we can't be held responsible if things turns out bad on your end. Attempt at your own risk.


Until we get more time to complete to write a step-by-step guide, here is an image depicting how we use this component in our mods, before it's isolated in a shrink wrap.
