    Just a tip , tape wires to the battery and have them connected to the cart while replacing , then take them off when done I don't think you'll ever lose the save if it hasn't died already

    While this may work sometimes, it can actually send too many volts to the Save Rom and damage it. So I would not offer that service because it's risky and because I cannot guaranty it'll work every time. :)

    Yeh I know it shouldn't but old carts are fragile and I wouldn't want to risk anything when dealing with other peoples carts.
    I will however try this with the next few of my own carts to test, thanks for the suggestion. P.s I was just reading your GCP thread today Good Work.

    Good luck on this!

    I've been looking for a service similar to this, except in the US.

    This would be available to USA also, thanks for the support.
    I'm currently making a website to accommodate this service.

    Sorry, but we do not allow for commercial services to be sponsored on this site. If you were to do this for free, like other users do (Devin, DeadlyFoez, etc), then this could stay, but until then, nope.
