[Discontinued] GBA Wireless RX with LiPo Charger (Play your GBA wirelessly)

$0.00 USD

As an extension to the Wireless Gameboy/GBA Controller project, we now offer a GBA receiver which allows you to control your GBA wirelessly after you hook up all the keys to the board. You will need a board and transmitter as a minimum to get started. You can continue to play the GBA as normal too if you wish.

We recommend purchasing the smaller, more simple version here

This is a DIY part which requires a fair bit of work. and it draws about 15mA. You’ll need to make some modifications to your GBA firstly by adding a wire to each button, some cutting to the case and you will need to solder your LiPo battery leads to the board. Check out the installation instructions for further details.

Can work on the GBC, GBA SP, etc, you would just need to figure out the wiring of the buttons yourself and find a 3.3V voltage source on the board.
