Set of 3 Panasonic Surface Mount Electrolytic Capacitors - GBC upgrade
High quality SMD capacitor replacement/upgrade set for your Game Boy Color system.
Help fix issues with low audio, system noise, image issues, LCD screen issues and many other faults. It is a good idea to replace all the caps on these consoles now even just for maintenance purposes, to ensure video and audio work for years to come.
The power capacitor in this set has been upgraded from 100uf 6.3v to 680uf 6.3v to help get rid of system noise, which can be exacerbated by modern modifications such as IPS backlit screens, amplifiers and battery charging upgrades.
These S Series capacitors (originally used by Nintendo) have a 40°C to 80°C operating temp and lifetime rating of 1000 hours @ 85°C. This far exceeds the operating temperatures of the GBC.
All capacitors are Panasonic S series, surface mounted and are polarized (black side is negative)
