This is a DIY part which requires a fair bit of work. and it draws about 15mA. Could work on the GBC, GBA SP, Micro, etc, you just need to confirm the buttons on the device are common ground, at 3.3v when not being pressed and you just need to figure out the wiring of the buttons yourself and find a 3.3V voltage source on the board.

Build to order (usually 1-2 weeks before it ships)



You will need a board and receiver as a minimum to get started. You can re-using your existing transmitter if you already have one.
