This board allows charge the battery and take the audio out with a USB-C earphone (or use them with a USB-C to jack audio adapter)!

However, this board it’s extremely small and you will need to solder 6 small pads. So, it can be a bit difficult.


  • Charge your Game Boy Advance SP by USB-C.
  • Play the sound using a USB-C adapter to Jack 3.5mm.


  • 1 board.
  • 1 plastic cap to cover the hole.



Important! USB chargers with cable USB-C to USB-C (link) may NOT work because the board doesn’t have the resistors to indicate the device is a normal device, not a modern with fast charge feature. (The resistors are not included in the design because that disables the audio feature).
The USB-A to USB-C cables/chargers has full compatibility! (check here)

Due to the difference between different monitors, the picture may not reflect the actual color of the plastic cap.

The USB-C earphone or USB-C adapter to Jack 3.5mm must be without any DAC inside, just analogue device, otherwise it won’t work. For example these ones work perfect:

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a USB-C to USB-C charger?

It normally doesn’t work because the board doesn’t include the 5.1K resistors for helping the modern USB-C chargers to know the kind of charge of the device. I tried to put them but when I did the sound didn’t work.
