Picked up a BoxyPixel GBA SP and managed to find an original copy of Emerald to compensate for the ones someone stole from me so many years ago

    I recently bought a used GBA SP, but it needs a new battery to hold a better charge.

    Where did you get this? I love rebuilt retro consoles, especially if they come with upgraded screen tech

      Not OP but boxypixel is a company that manufacturers alluminum shells and buttons for consoles. You buy directly from them. They also stock a lot of the screen and other upgrades. (USB c charging is the best) I’ve done their GBA and their Gameboy color and have been thrilled with the results.

        They’re absolutely stunning, yeah! I got this from a local modder, built. I don’t think I have the skill to actually do it myself, haha but I’d love to, been thinking about fixing up my OG GBA so we’ll see!

        This one has the USB-C mod! I got a generic SP charger today just in case too
