Set of 3 Panasonic Surface Mount Electrolytic Capacitors - GBC upgrade for the original capacitors.

High quality SMD capacitor upgrade set for your Game Boy Color system.

Help fix issues with low audio, system noise, image issues, LCD screen issues and many other faults.

The power capacitor in this set has been upgraded from 100uf 6.3v to 680uf 6.3v to help get rid of system noise, which can be exacerbated by modern modifications such as IPS backlit screens, amplifiers and battery charging upgrades.

These S Series capacitors (originally used by Nintendo) have a 40°C to 80°C operating temp and lifetime rating of 1000 hours @ 85°C. This far exceeds the operating temperatures of the GBC.

All capacitors are Panasonic S series, surface mounted and are polarized (black side is negative)

1 x 680uf 6.3v cap (replacement for 100uf 6.3v cap) Location C32
