now that it fully works you wont have to get a new set of batteries for a few years hopefully and now you get to show off your cool creation to ever...
tired of buying batteries for your gamboy color? this should keep you from buying new batteries for a long time and all you need is a solar light from walmart or home depot, in my case i got it at my work (a grocery store). I've seen others do solar hand hels but i always thought it would be too hard or just not practical until i saw this video on how to make your own solar tv remote http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UISgLcnXsz then i instantly thought... wow that looks really easy and cheap to do.
also i have been working on this instructable for over a month having to retake many pictures since i transition from an old treo phone to a new droid g2, so please rate this for all the work i've done.
NOW FEATURED ON HACK A DAY http://hackaday.com/2011/04/04/solar-powered-gameboy-color-never-runs-out-of-juice/
update, i just accidently ripped the solar pannel off the gameboy by mistake so in the meantime i think im going to buy a flexible panel to make it look less clunk and more durable
Step 1: WARNING PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK
I just want to make it clear that i am in no way responsible if you some how break your gameboy, burn down your house with the soldering iron or electrocute yourself
