3D Printing a Game Boy Battery Cover ReplacementJuly 7, 2022
Recently, I wrote about how to repair a broken Game Boy display. Admittedly, this "repair project" is much more trivial but then - it does not happen too often that I can 3D print something actually useful. So, as usual, I had to write a quick blog post about it.
We have this well-preserved Game Boy Advance at home, which me and my kids use from time to time to do some retro-gaming.
Unfortunately, the battery cover got lost years ago.
Usually, this is not a big problem - but recently when my kid was playing a bit too excitedly, the batteries fell out mid-game. You'll agree that this is unacceptable, so I went looking for a fix.
Luckily, there's Thingiverse which has a solution for every problem (that's solvable with 3D printing).
Of course, someone had already designed such a battery cover replacement.
I only had to download it ...
... print it, problem solved.
