I don't know about you, but i'm tired of buying AA batteries, and i still LOVE my nostalgia game collection.
so, i decided to mix old and new to make a rechargeable game boy! this instructable is where you will learn to
do the same!
to do this you will need:
a triwing screwdriver (or small flathead)
sharp object (needlenose pliers worked for me)
~4 in. of wire
a rechargeable battery (i used psp slim)
plugin for charger
a gameboy color
and good enthusiasm !
once you have that, lets get started!
Step 1: :in the Beginning...
okay, what you need to do is take your triwing screwdriver and take out all of the screws on the gameboy,
they are all found on the back, two on top, two in the middle, and two in the battery housing area.
take them all out and pull the back off of your gameboy.
once you have the back off of your gameboy take your sharp object and cut out the battery housing,
i did mine from the inside of the back, and it worked okay.
note: you will need to take out the entire battery area, or the new battery won't fit.
ALSO, BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK OFF THE PART THAT THE BATTERY COVER CLICKS IN TO.
