The switch chosen for the GBA assembly is too small/weak and breaks easily.

[About the GBA version. GBC works perfectly]

This item failed after a few actuations, it appears that moving the switch the distance it must travel puts too much leverage on the switch mechanism. When it broke, it fell apart and the T shape switch lever is tiny compared to that from the original GBA switch. The GBC version of this is fantastic, but the GBA one is a poor replacement. I used a same-as-OEM switch eventually, it was so much beefier.

Fantastic switch

Replaced GBA original switch with the Helder's Game Tech power switch and it works perfectly. Fantastic replacement.

Works okay

Powers on fine but does not quite restore full functionality as it bridges the switch to ground instead of resistor R13 when turned off. Still functions okay, just need to wait a few seconds when power cycling or it won't turn on immediately

Works well

Just installed one and it.lines up well both with the solder pads and the switch/case.
