We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
Why won't my Game Boy game save? Most Game Boy (Original, Color and Advance) cartridges that allow games to be saved contain a small internal battery to store your save states. Over time, this battery degrades and needs replacement.
When these games were developed, flash memory was very expensive, and so volatile memory powered by a small battery was often used instead. NES, SNES and N64 cartridges also used such batteries for storing saved games.
Use this send in service to get 1 Game Boy, Game Boy Color or Game Boy Advance games internal battery replaced with a brand new one.
Once you have placed your order, package up and send us your game to the following address:

Then send us any tracking information along with your order number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know once we receive your console.
Once we get it, turn-around time is typically 48-72 hours, then we send the item back by the delivery method you specified during checkout.
Any questions or details contact us via email.
Once we get your cartridge, we open it up, clean all the PCB, clean your contact pins, and then replace your game save battery with a brand new battery.
If you want multiple game batteries replacing, purchase multiple quantities of this service.
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit.
All restoration work, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA, HIMITSUNOVA in Japan and Perth Retro Gaming in Australia. In 2021 we partnered with RetroReiZ in Germany and The Retro Game Corner in Ireland. We believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at
