Why, a power source that doesn’t create clutter, that’s what! Here, we’re going to demonstrate how to install a permanent set of internal batteries and forever eliminate the need for a clunky wall-wart or the ugly tumor of a battery pack that just hangs out, jutting from the back.

Up first in our continuing series of Sega Nomad Mods is adding in a new replacement LCD screen. The stock Nomad screen, while better than the screen featured on the Sega Gamegear (which isn’t saying much, really), it was still a blurry, washed out mess. Thankfully, we have arrived onto the future and screen technology is vastly improved, cheaper, and widely available. Let’s get started!
