Charge the Battery on a Game Boy Micro
Rechargeable batteries are a vital component on today’s technology. With all of the devices that are made specifically for portability, the most convenient way to provide power to your units are through rechargeable batteries. The Game Boy Micro is one of these devices. If you are a serious gamer who wants to take your gaming device with your everywhere, you might find it useful to know how to charge the battery on a Game Boy Micro before leaving the house.
Level of Difficulty: Easy
1. Remove your Game Boy Micro from its packaging. There should be an AC adapter included with the package.
2. Take the AC adapter from its packaging. Unravel the cord so to lengthen it and give you more room to work with.
3. Insert the small round end of the cord into the corresponding area on your Game Boy Micro. You will notice this area on the top of your unit. If the tip does not fit, you are likely putting it in the wrong place.
4. Pull out the electrical prongs from the large end of the cord. Do this gently to avoid damaging or bending the prongs.
5. Plug the AC adapter into a standard 120-volt electrical wall outlet. Anything different could cause damage to your unit.
6. Allow your unit’s battery to charge. You will know it is charging because the START and SELECT buttons on the unit will be lit up.
7. Disconnect the AC adapter when the START and SELECT buttons dim. This is the signal that your Game Boy Micro battery has fully charged.
1. For best results, allow the unit’s battery to charge fully before using it.
2. After removing the adapter from the wall outlet, fold the prongs back into their original position to avoid damage to them during storage.
3. Always turn your Game Boy Micro OFF when not in use. This will save the charge on the battery and help to prevent damage to the battery and the unit that could be caused by leakage.
1. Never leave the AC adapter plugged into the wall outlet without the DC connector plugged into your Game Boy Micro. Doing this could cause severe damage or possibly even a fire.
2. When disconnecting the AC adapter from the wall, pull on the connector rather than the cord.
3. Use only Nintendo licensed equipment with your Game Boy Micro. Using other equipment may void your unit’s warranty and could cause irreparable damage.
