Nice. I know anyone who has shopped on ebay knows and hates turbo 3rd party crap. I think the thing is a nice peice of equipment but I wouldn't buy it because from far away you can't really tell it's a NES. Know what I'm sayin'?

The LED isnt hard on the intec/hipgear screens. I did the LED mod to my hipgear screen and it was supriseingly (sp?) easy.

Then again, what's the point of doing the LED mod on the Intec screen, unless you're making it brighter with super brights or something? I mean, the amperage draw on these things is already ridiculously low, so the LED mod would save you no more than 50mAh. I mean, why take the risk if you don't have to? :P

Can't it run at a slightly lower voltage if you do one?

g-force is using four batteries is that enough to run a hipgear/intec with the original backlight?

A decal or 2 wouldn't hurt though
I agree, but all i have are black stick-on letters, and that looks pretty lame.

what are the dimensions of it?
Length: 8 inches. Width: 3 inches. Height 1.25 inches. It fits in a pocket pretty easily, so the shape works well.

Same here, the LED mod was crazy easy. It only took about 15 minutes total. most of that was just looking for the right resistors in my box of crap :P All it involves is taking off the metal piece holding the fluorescent tube, take the tube out, desolder all the stuff on the board used for that, replace the metal piece, stick LED's on each end, wire it all up (I did series with a 32 ohm resistor, if I remember right.), then test it out. Worked like a charm. LED's were a great idea, thank you Ben!

I don't have a precise measurement, but I'm pretty sure it added at least a few hours onto the normal battery life.

The main reason I did it is because the normal backlight on my particular screen would not run off the 4 AA's (4.8V) that I was using. It came on, but was so faint you couldn't hope to play it like that.

@Turbo Tax: I know that gannon runs his unmodded screen off 4 AA's with no problem. For some reason mine was just not wanting to cooperate. :P

Or if you have some colored paint, some duct tape, a printer and a pen-knife, try making a stencil with the paper, with the duct tape strenghening it.

It's an OK idea, though it needs a bit of working with to get a good way of stencilling the decal

That's one cram job. Compared to your NES controller thing, it's big, but you had to fit batteries and a screen on this thing. Congrats.

Thrift store, I think. I've actually had it for a while, just sitting there, daring me to do something with it.

Radio Shack, but they stopped carrying this particular case a while ago. Dang it. I wouldn't mind making another, this was a fun project.
