Growing up as a gamer came with a certain set of problems unique to the hobby. One such problem was the near-constant need for AA batteries to power my various Game Boy iterations. The dawn of the rechargeable batteries in handheld devices was a bright one indeed.
If you still have a Game Boy Color or Pocket (and honestly, why wouldn’t you?), you can breathe a sigh of relief. This USB power cable for your Game Boy allows you to power the device via USB and the power port on the Game Boy itself.
Now, you can’t power the device with a 5V source directly, so the power cable here also includes a voltage regulator, short-circuit, overcurrent, and overheating protection, along with a 500 mA fuse for addition protection for your device as well. Keep in mind, this won’t charge internal batteries, it’s simply a way to bypass the batteries entirely.
