My GBA sp's battery died 5 years ago, and when I got this, it was alive again! My only complaint is that there is no conclusive picture as to what it looks like, but so far, it's been working normally.
J'ai acheter cette batterie pour remplacé l'ancienne. Bon fonctionnement seul bémol la batterie a du mal a rentré dans la console, j'ai du forcé un peu ce qui a abîmé la batterie mais seulement l’esthétique ce qui est a mon gout pas très grave .
Ordered on 5/12/2019. Received pictured product, 600mah batteries. My original Advance SP batteries lasted about 30 minutes. The new ones last for hours! A great way to breath new life in to the best Game Boy made.
I recently got back into gaming with my GameBoy Advance when I found some childhood games at a local game store and thought I’d go on a bit of a nostalgia trip. Since the battery was 15 years old at this point though it was time to get a new one, at most I would get maybe four hours of gaming before my light would turn red. I was a little wary but delivery was quick and the battery fit perfectly! I didn’t expect to find such an easy fix so quickly, and for $10 it’s practically a steal. I’m giving just 4 stars until I’ve had it for a little bit and see what my long-term results are but my hopes are high, great purchase!
This was a solid replacement for my Game Boy Advanced SP's battery. The product arrived on-time, came well-packaged, and even included a small screw-driver to open up a GBA SP. The battery works well and gives me about 4-6 hours per charge. I usually need to charge it for 1-2 hours. In contrast, Nintendo claims its stock SP battery would last between 7-10 hours and require 3 hours to fully charge.
I have been using the battery for over three weeks now, with close to 3 hours per day whilst commuting. I have not seen any degradation in quality during these first few weeks.
This product does have some strange quirks. After changing the battery for three hours before actually playing a GBA game, my SP displayed a red LED light indicating a low battery level. This seemed to be a false-positive, as the light went away after I rebooted my SP.
I paid $7.99 (USD) for this battery and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get back into retro gaming.
