    That kit will work, but you definitely need to use LOCA for a better view. Even then, it'll still be washed out. Use a front light from a broken GBASP AGS001 handheld. It'll have some glare but still better than those 3rd party front light with LOCA.

    Here's mine with a dimmer chip. AGS001 front light panel, dimmer chip to turn down the light or off, wiring, and a 33 OHMs resistor:

    Hey. The GBA picture you have posted is just a GBA ags 001 front light, no use of LOCA? I was considering buying the front light with LOCA from Handheld Legend. Have you seen good things. Also, I'm wanting too front light my GBC, with supplies from Handheld Legend. Do you know if the GBA ags001 front light works on a GBC. When you use a GBA ags001 front light are you using LOCA? Or, is it only the front light? Thanks.
