    I would consider getting a JXD S7300.

    Pretty hard to get GBA flash carts these days :( and when you do find them they usually want like $100.

    If you go to that light take web page and search for S7300 you should see them for 139 with no taxes or shipping.

    Personally, I'd go Acekard2i + EZFlash 3-in1 if I had a DS Lite.

    I had considered the jxd s7300, but it was a tad costly and took a look on the jxd s602...
    65$!!! Nice...but many jxd devices have problems and also the rarely get any updates...(considering it runs on android 4 )

    Well there are pros and cons for each

    Revo K101- GBA hardware clone and very good by all accounts but comes with large waiting time and a save issue that is yet to be fixed.

    Slot 2 card - Most available today are fakes and poor quality but if you can find one EZ flash IV seems very good.

    DSTwo - GBA emulation has taken a pretty big leap on the DStwo and these are readily available but battery can be drained by the extra cpu and emulation still has issues.

    If you need something reliable and quickly I'd probably go for the DSTwo the other two options are a little harder to get hold of.

    EDIT - All JXD devices I have had have been pretty low quality build wise, emulation has been good on them but they don't feel good in any way.

    Ebay has the Supercard SD, slot 2/GBA cart.
    This is a reputable dealer i have purchased from MANY times and each unit i've received has worked very well (despite the known and well documented shortcomings of it software wise.)
    But for the price ($25) you can't beat the ability to play NES, GB/GBC, Master System, some Turbografx-16 and Game Gear games.

    Still rocking mine in a GB Micro, 2gb micri-sd maxed out, still running like a champ.
    They even come with a good, Kingston, Micro-SD to Mini-SD adapter.
