Features:

- Generates 5V rail used by system and popular backlit screen kits.
- Built in battery indicator - Frog eyes go from green to red for low battery.

Description:

The Frogulator is a replacement DC regulator for the Game Boy Color & Pocket, with 100% more frog!

Works well in conjunction with my other GBC/MGB mods, it is only for use with IPS type LCD screen mods, and will not work with an OEM screen.

The kit includes the Frogulator PCB & Header pins, you will need basic tools including screwdrivers, a soldering iron, desoldering braid and solder to install this mod.

A video with installation instructions can be found here: https://youtu.be/vh3eVYYDOCo

Notes:
- Header pins are not pre-soldered, to protect the Frogulator in shipping.
- Does NOT work with OEM screens, including those that are backlit/biverted.
- Efficiency depends on screen kit used. See "Tested Screen Kits" below.
- Battery indicator is tuned for NiMh rechargeable AA batteries. Use in a Pocket with AAA batteries will result in low battery indicator showing for longer.
- When used in a Game Boy Pocket with the FunnyPlaying IPS kit, brightness control will not work.

Tested Screen Kits:
- FunnyPlaying GBC Retro Pixel 2.0. Efficiency with this kit depends on whether or not the PWR wire is connected on the screen ribbon(ribbon v2.6+ only). See charts in images.
- GBC Q5 OSD IPS. Frogulator is more efficient than stock regulator. See chart in images.
- Cloud Game Store 2.45" Backlit LCD. Efficiency not tested.
- Other CGS kits should work, but are currently untested.
