Notes

  • Battery packs ship with the switch set to OFF. Please remember to turn the battery pack ON before powering on your console.
  • Depending on where we are in production, this product may have a lead time of up to 2 weeks
  • Our battery packs are produced in-house, meaning some production time is always involved. Each battery goes through a rigorous quality assurance process before shipping. Even if you don't order a trimmed battery door, please be advised that there may be up to 2 weeks lead time on this product.
  • Selecting a trimming option can add up to 4 weeks of production time to your order.
  • Parts of the console's battery compartment need to be trimmed in order for the battery pack to fit into the shell. We strongly recommend purchasing an aftermarket Game Boy Advance shell to avoid damaging your genuine shell.
  • These battery packs have been made with aftermarket shells in mind.
  • Battery cover does not need to be trimmed if you prefer to keep the console's original aesthetic, but this option requires removing the battery cover whenever you want to charge the battery pack. 
  • The 1000 mAh version has been discontinued in favor of our Ultimate 1400 mAh model
  • Product images are from our second prototype. The product you receive may vary slightly from what's depicted on the product page with respect to color, dimensions, and LED positioning
  • If, at any point, you want to return to using AA batteries, all you need to do is put the metal contact back in the housing and insert your AA batteries. Even though the shell was trimmed for the battery pack, the AA batteries will fit safely and will power on your console
  • Customers who wish to purchase more than one battery are encouraged to purchase accessories separately through their individual product pages since the quantity for the accessories cannot be adjusted from this page
  • Due to restrictions imposed by USPS, batteries going to the United States can only be shipped via ground transportation, which may extend the time it takes for you to receive your order

Warning

  • This product is fragile and should be handled with care. It uses a 1400 mAh rechargeable Lithium ion polymer (LiPo) battery and, as with all LiPo batteries, it can leak or explode if not handled properly. By purchasing this battery pack, you acknowledge that you take responsibility for how you treat this product
  • Do not force the battery to fit in the Game Boy Advance battery compartment. Trim more plastic away from your shell until you guarantee a good fit
  • Do not leave your battery pack unattended if it's close to a heat source
  • We recommend not removing and reinserting the battery pack more than you have to. Once you have installed it in your system, leave it there and charge it either by removing the battery door or by trimming the battery door to fit the charger. Repeated removal of the battery pack can cause premature wear on the outer foil, leading to potential hazards
