    Yet another GBA Advance portable I made, sorry for spamming the finished projects forum guys. I actually started this one in December 2015 and it was going to be a Gamecube portable. It was painted by my sister and luckily since she took so long to do it, I had already moved on from the Gamecube! Same internals as the other GBA Wiis I made. I have plans to make a cool video showcasing this one but not sure when I will get around to it.

    Features:
    -OMGWTF Wii
    -3.5" screen
    -GameCube controller
    -3DS sliders
    -Double-tact shoulder buttons
    -Switching Headphone jack and speakers
    -7.4v 3400mah lithium-ion batteries
    -1v and 1.15v line shorted using a PTR08100
    -SD loading
    -Bluetooth

    Great work as always!

    So do you have the carrying cases or do you have a mold for them?

    I had the carrying cases and these were left over. Pretty much only started making these ones to use up parts I had been hoarding for awhile. That's why I chose to only use 2x battery cells and shorted voltage lines since I made them on a short budget. They still work great either way. The next GBA Wii I am working on is 3D printed and will have a full set of features this time B|

    Hey you think you could use a wii u gamepad shell as a case? Other then that it looks amazing and brings back memories.

    Sure, it's been done plenty of times before. I made a GCp in one a long time ago. I have no interest in using that case again though.

    Refurbished with GC+, USB for PortablizeMii, and a better audio amp with electronic headphone switching.

    Thanks. It was a collaboration. My sister painted it using acrylic and I put it together :)

    They were made from the inside shell of a GBA carrying case. I used a dremel and drill to make the cuts and then spray painted it.
