    Hi Fellas, I've learned that installing the ags101 screen on the original gba will not be as bright as the highest setting on the SP. After talking to a guy on youtube about it he mentioned that it's not getting the full power requirement it needs.
    I thought that perhaps I could directly connect it to the battery but I don't want to fry it so I will use some kind of circuit or driver in between.

    I asked the guy on youtube if he knew the power requirements for the LCD screen and backlight and he guessed that it might require 9 volts and 20-25mah. Does anyone know for sure?
