    There's a new revision of an old GBA flashcart hitting the market. Krikzz has just announced that their latest release, the EverDrive GBA X5 Mini, can finally be ordered through their official website. The X5 Mini comes in a smaller form factor than the previous version, and will retail for $99. It'll support all save types, has 256Mbit ROM memory, can be used with the GameCube Player through use of the super Retro Advance adapter, and can play NES, GB, and GBC backups through an emulation mode.

    Wonder what the Super Retro Advance (a GBA to SNES emulator thing) did to work with that, or they did to work with it, of it the "certain revisions" are more than an emulator and dumper combo.

    Anyway $99 is a bit steep but at the same time within some measure of reason.

    I was wondering what happened with this the other day, since RetroRGB talked about it a while ago

    how much better you think this is than the Omega on Aliexpress? Those are $40, this is $100.

    Is Omega a clone or its own thing? Cause if the former that factors in:

    Krikzz is legit

    I have a sudden hankering for an AGS-101 GBA SP... but I dunno the prices are kinda nuts

    Always great to see more GBA flash carts. Although a quick correction that "can be used with the GameCube Player through use of the super Retro Advance adapter" is a mix of two different things. The Super Retro Advance is a GBA player for SNES and has no relation to the GameCube Player.

    Low power consumption? :ninja:

    Does some of the flashcarts actually effect the battery life? I didn't think that was a thing. Most of the time, I usually think the battery life is how much functions the system is using, like the backlight on a GBA SP or the wifi on a DS.

    Yes. Some flashcarts draw more power than a standard gba cart, so battery life is shorter.

    This is news to me. Not sure why that is. But it just seem weird that is the case. Though I guess now and days, devices have various life spans batteries depending on how you use them. More processing power for the software in use drains more battery. But for a GBA game which seems to bearly do any noticeable difference in processing power depending on game. :blink:

    so i wonder if this cart saves the sram to the sd card at the time the game actually saves. None of these carts have that feature. You would think it would be a standard feature.

    If this was 2004 this would have been sweet but considering how this is 2020 with so much emulation I don't see the need to spend $99 let alone even own a GBA but I guess for those who are interested in a vintage GBA that can play backups I guess this is for you

    I disagree, as a purist, unless your emulator is as good as the Higan SNES core in terms of accuracy, then I prefer real hardware.
