I recently picked up a copy of Pokemon Sapphire with a dead battery. In this video, I show you how to replace it. I also replace it with a higher capacity battery (CR2025 instead of CR1616).

If you are going to do this replacement yourself, order a battery with soldering tabs like the one I have.

Thanks to Silley Doggo for sending in some intro music. Reminds me of playing an old-school Pac-Man machine. Link to their channel:

    Oooo. A bit too much for me to do. Maybe someone with better vision. But was surprised when he used the exact same game I wanted a new battery for also with a ds lite

    I tried this and messed up, the game gets recognized (it says nintendo below) but won't boot up after that, I might have hit a component I guess, can the game still be fixed or I lost it?

    using a bigger battery works but it won’t fit 100% in the cartridge slot. you kinda have to jam it in. it still works though

    3:18, youre incorrect. The top side is Negative. The tab is going to the Negative side (edge) and the bottom is going to the Positive (center).
    However, you solder it back correctly.

    If it's hard to get the solder wick on that one terminal, you could just use a solder sucker tool, correct?

    I have the tools to do this myself. Anyone in the SLC UT area could hit me up. Terms and conditions do apply

    Hello, I have some games that need your help. I've done all I can but can't get them to work. How do I go about mailing them to you?

    This video helped out a lot. I've had my copy of Pokemon emerald for a little over four years and it came with a dead battery. I previously fixed it using the solderless method (definitely sketchy) but that battery ended up dying so I decided I'd do it the right way. Had a little bit of trouble getting the tabs off and then a little trouble with the negative tab actually going on the way it needed cause I used too much solder. All in all it helped to have this video rather than going in blind

    One method that works really well is to add solder to the new battery's tabs prior to soldering it to the board. It all just melts together nicely and you won't need to then add more solder. Either way works well though.

    I used a 2032. IDK if that's bigger battery than 2025. It's still a 3v.
    I didn't have to use a soldering tool, I just shut the case and it keeps in place.
    Do I have to worry about the pressure from the bigger battery breaking the chip in the game?

    Always love to see a fellow Canadian doing these 🙂
    Just curious as to where you source the batteries from?

    I just recently got my solderin certificates, and it just makes fixing things easy. I love that I can fix stuff like this.

    what type of solder watt do you recommend to use for this kind of work of soldering gba batteries?

    I tried removing solder from a board using a desoldering braid. However, none of the solder would stick to the braid, even though the soldering iron was on maximum heat. What did I do wrong? Please help!

    I watched a video on fake Nintendo cartridges and a dead giveaway for most of them is a big black blob on the boards.

    So if that battery doesn't control saves, then what does? I always thought it needed one to read and write save data.

    Man could you replace it with a capacitor? So it never runs dry again

    Hey SO I have to do this for my game as well. Looking up at some guides, and ifixit, they dont solder. will here be a difference if I choose not to solder? is it just for securing the battery?
