This FreckleShack PCB(V2) revision has the new V2.5 Firmware - This means no flicker in the black border area as was reported in V2, or between frames. There is no frame drop, skip, lag or added frames which are common in the Chinese kits. It runs at the native gameboy frame rate. It uses the lowest power of all our competitors and is brighter than the Chinese versions.

Batch 8 has been designed with a digital brightness controller built in. This does require one wire to be soldered, but you can also leave it disconnected and it'll function just the same as the previous version at full brightness.
Thanks for your continued support!
Kit includes LCD, 3d printed spacers, Sticker, conversion PCB and ribbon. You will need a working GBC.
