Tired of unexpectedly losing your game progress when your batteries die? This mod replaces the Game Boy Color's OEM power LED with a two stage battery indicator so you'll always know when it's time to save your game!

Installation guide:

- Power LED changes color when batteries are near depleted
- Tuned for use with LiPo cells and popular NiMH rechargeable batteries, e.g. IKEA LADDA, Eneloop, etc
- Battery indicator can be switched between NiMH and LiPo mode using switch on back. Stripe on switch corresponds to NiMH mode.
- Compatible with OEM and aftermarket screens(see compatibility table in gallery)
- Low power consumption: ~6mA at 2.4V
- Simple installation, only 3 points to solder

- Latest version uses a wireless installation. Solder VCC pad on top edge to the aligned via on the GBC motherboard. The tip of a craft knife can be gently twirled in the via to make it more receptive to soldering.
- It is highly recommended that you clean the inside of your power switch before installing this mod to avoid flickering near the threshold voltage
- Low battery warning time will vary with battery brand, capacity, age, etc. See testing table in gallery
- Verified to work correctly with OEM DC regulator and Frogulator. Aftermarket regulators will work, but may exhibit slight behavioral differences, e.g. options from Helder and Retro6

All USA purchases include free tracked shipping. International orders below $49 will be untracked.
