Game Boy Advance AGS-101 Voltage Regulator

  • Sale
  • Regular price $13.64
Shipping calculated at checkout.

Our in-house voltage regulator is now available for your custom modding projects. 

On its own, the Game Boy Advance doesn’t feed the AGS-101 enough power, meaning it's not as bright as a backlit GBA SP. Our in-house VR provides the appropriate voltage and current to produce a clear backlit image. It's so bright you can even play in the full sun! With greater stability and a compact size, it's never been easier to mod your Game Boy Advance.

For more control, upgrade to our VRV2, which combines our voltage regulator with our in-house brightness controller.


  • Dramatically improves the brightness of the AGS-101 LCD by supplying the appropriate output voltage of 12.2V
  • Operating voltage between 1.7V and 3.2V (meaning no flickering with low batteries)
