Low Battery Blinking LED Indicator Mod for DMG / Pocket / GBC

$8.00 $6.00

With this simple mod once your battery reaches a certain level, the battery indicator LED will start blinking for around 15 seconds every 1 minute. You can set the voltage at which the LED start blinks by shorting out the “Set” solder pads (e.g with a screwdriver or wire) on the board for 2 seconds when the battery is low.

Connect 3 or 4 wires depending on the battery / output type and you’re good to go. You need to supply your own wire. Check out the v1.1 installation instructions on the left tab.

Installation (v1.1)

DMG, GBC, Pocket – AAs / LiPo or LiPo with diode (not fixed voltage output)


Use solder to bridge the Power switch pad (cyan)
Connect Power switch pad to device V+ (yellow line)
Connect LED pad to appropriate connection

Note: We don’t recommended using this device with regular 1.5V AAs on the DMG

DMG

Pocket

GBC

Note on using LiPos on the GBC:
By default the LED is too bright when the battery is low so you won’t notice it blinking. You could fix that by changing the resistor labelled R7 to around 4K-5K.

DMG, GBC, Pocket – LiPo with fixed voltage output battery packs


Connect Power switch pad (yellow line) to the GB, after the power switch
Connect LED pad to appropriate connection

Installation (v1.0)

DMG
– Works with rechargeable AAs
– Will work with LiPos as long as they don’t have fixed voltage output (some battery packs you buy do this)

Pocket/GBC
– Works with AAs or rechargeable AAs
– Requires modification to work with LiPos as long as they don’t have fixed voltage output (some battery packs you buy do this). By default the LED is too bright when the battery is low so you won’t notice it blinking. You could fix that by changing the resistor labelled R7 to around 4K-5K.
