Trust me, it’s worth the wait.
There are multiple upgrades available for your custom Game Boy. Depending on your console of choice, the following upgrades are available:
All consoles in the shop will be equipped with the latest IPS display.
If available, these are optional:
- Regular v2 display
Standard model: can’t go wrong with this.
- RetroPixel 3.0
This screen is specifically made for the Game Boy Color. You can adjust alignment and set a logo color.
- IPS Laminated
The (3.0) laminated IPS display is the latest on the market for the Game Boy Advance.
The air gap between the display and the glass screen lens is removed and reduces the amount of reflections and glare that can interfere with the viewing experience. The result is a display that appears to be more vibrant, brighter, and clearer than a non-laminated display.
- TFT display
It has the same display effect as AGS-101, without ghosting, better colors and brighter backlight.
- Rechargeable battery module.
With this upgrade, the Game Boy will be equipped with a battery from 800mAh to 1200mAh. Depending on which Game Boy you choose, some changes will be made to fit the battery into the shell. For Game Boy Advance and Game Boy DMG there are ready-to-go battery covers available. This charging board module does have led charging indicator and you can use the magnetic USB-C cables from the shop.
This drop-in module is very popular and also available in the shop. This rechargeable battery will deliver 1700mAh of power and is equipped with USB-C and charge indicator. Works perfectly for a cleaner sound in combination with CleanAmp Pro and dehum/dehiss modules.
- CleanAmp Pro
The CleanAmp replaces the original audio amplifier of the Game Boy with a loud amplifier. A dehum/dehiss kit is recommended.
- New speaker
Speaker replacement. This clear speaker will look great in a clear shell and is 15% louder
This kit consists of the perfect spec capacitors to filter out the noise on the console itself, produced by the CPU, SRAM and power regulator.
Please be aware that an original Game Boy may produce some noise, and these upgrades can potentially amplify that noise, making it impossible to completely eliminate it.
- IPS TV-Out
With this upgrade you can connect your console and play your favourite games on TV. (AV cable included) This display also comes with some colour palettes, which you can change by using the touch-sensor.
- CleanPower regulator
The CleanPower replaces the original power regulator PCB of the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Pocket with a modern smooth and health power supply. With the introduction of IPS mods, audio mods and other power hungry alterations to the console, the original regulator on the system is hugely over-strained and fails over time or does not power on at all due to the current draw.
- Clicky triggers
Only available for Game Boy Advance. This upgrade gives you a pair of lightly clicky triggers instead of spongy triggers, to be much more of a modern feel such as that in the GBA SP A and B buttons.
- LED Board
Light up your Game Boy. Pair with clear buttons to make your Game Boy shine! This board will be installed directly on the board. (Inside the shell)
- BOYSMODS utilizes the latest high-quality components available on the market for their builds. For certain builds or specific requests, there are important details that customers should be aware of.
- Crystal Clear shells
Crystal-clear shells are an excellent choice for special builds, as they allow you to see the interior of the console. However, it’s important to note that they are sensitive to fingerprints and other marks if mishandled.
- Matt and Pearl
Matt colored shells and parts occasionally referred to as Pearl, exhibit a high sensitivity to dust. Cleaning them can be challenging as they tend to show marks easily.
