    EZ Flash V 3-in-1 or maybe EZ Flash IV.

    Gba-games has to flashed from a slot 1 cart to be used with the 3-in-1 and you can only store one game at a time on it, while the EZ Flash IV is a full-fledged slot 2 flashkart with microSD support.

    Some people may suggest those 3in1 deals, but I don't like sharing the memory in the slot1 card for slot2 functions.

    I think the BEST slot2 cart is the M3 Perfect. No slowdown in GBA games. You give it its own memory card and can load that sucker up so between your slot1 and slot2 cards, you'll have yourself the ultimate pocket arcade.

    But, M3 perfect cost one pretty penny at $70+

    It will pay for itself many times over very quickly, what with all the free games you can jam into it. The M3 is essentially the same as my SCminiSD, except none of the lame slowdown in GBA games and also has the real-time clock. I currently have about 600 games jammed into my SCminiSD between GBA, NES, and other emu's. Can't do that with a 3in1.

    Just sayin'.......

    I would say that the EZ Flash IV is in between M3 and SC. It has no slowdowns in Gba-games, but on the other hand it doesn't have that real-time clock.

    I also have Cyclo and I like the EZ Flash 3-in-1. It's cheap ($20), widely available, has rumble/ram, and Cyclo natively supports it (loads gba roms from the gui, automatically backs up gba saves to .sav when booting up Cyclo).

    I agree with the Cyclo + 3-in-1 option, It works really well and it's now supports direct launching from the firmware.
