    Happy new year! :D
    I finally got back to work again and will be posting pictures (see above post). Today I ordered a LCD screen, so all I need to do now is trimming the mother board. Once I get around to do the dirty work with the electronics I should be able to get to case designing. Suggestions are welcome! The LCD is 5".​

    Plus the screen is soldered on already. It would be a pain to carry that lug of crap around especially for that price.

    The screens aren't soldered, they clip on in the back. But yeah I see what you mean.

    Looking at the work done on the pics, something was wrong and it was either melted or soldered onto it...

    There is an Intec battery: http://www.amazon.com/Intec-GameCube-Battery-Pack-Black/dp/B00006DY4S It claims it can power the GameCube and a screen for 2 hours after being charged for 12 hours. It seems to attach to the bottom, so I'm sorry if it's not what you're looking for.

    EDIT: Just realised you were looking for a 12hr battery, sorry

    I was looking for a LiPo or NiPo battery that would last for 3 hours or so.

    Well for 3 hours you would need 2 6000 mah LiPo batterkes to power the GameCube and screen.

    Having had no experience with them, may I ask why? Just for future reference.

    They just tend to make low-quality products.

    I see you recently joined. May I say, Welcome!
    Are you here to build a portable GC too?
    I'll be updating this shortly, as I'm almost ready to start soldering.
    I'll add pics of the current build tonight.

    Thanks for the welcome! As for your question, I really don't know, I love taking on electronic projects so I may build a portable console of some sort (The GameCube is one of the only Nintendo consoles I don't own) but I may buy one just for a personal challenge :lol:
