Not as it is, since it's essentially the ever popular Chinese-cloned SNES chipset designed as a portable from the get go. However, a special flash cart called a "Super Powerpak" which allows you to stock ROMs on a CF card and most ROMs work without issue. SuperFX games won't work though due to lack of an actual SuperFX chip.

There is another cart called the SD2SNES, which uses the more standard SD cards, and it can work on a RetroDuo Portable, so that means it will likely work on other clones including my FC-16 Go.

Problem? Both are very expensive, and since I only get homebrew/unlicensed ROMs, I don't see myself purchasing one soon.
What about the Everdrive? It's Ashens endorsed!

Edit: Nevermind. Everdrive only supports DSP. SD2SNES supports most co-processors.

SD2SNES sounds 'swell, especially as it has support for byuu's MSU1 co-processor standard. Too bad it costs a lot as said above and it ain't that of a mass-produced cart so it's hard to obtain.

Speaking of the MSU1, it's epic lulz for byuu to come up with it, as it would pretty much be what could've been had Sony's deal with Nintendo for the SNES-CD went through. Except perhaps for the CD part, obviously. MSU1 worked, at least in theory or in emulation, but seeing it run in actual hardware is even more impressive.

If I decide to save up for an SNES flash cart, it would be the SD2SNES then. It's going to be a long while before that can happen, though. As for the MSU1... just think if that came out towards the end of the SNES's lifespan. It could have added a few more years to the system with the CD quality audio (with No Discs!) along with pre-rendered 3D graphics that companies could produce.

One more thing... the rechargeable battery the FC-16 Go uses is a BP-4L, a common cellphone battery. The one it came with is a 3.7v 1300mAh, and I seen BP-4Ls on eBay that can reach 3030mAh, which would increase the operating time significantly, on paper. [strike]The funny thing? My portable Sega Genesis system also uses the same type of battery IIRC. I will double check to make sure.[/strike] EDIT: Nope. The portable Genesis uses an NP 60-2 pack, which is also very common.

The portable Genesis is the AtGames unit with 80 built in games and included SD card slot for loading your own ROMs. It's software emulation running on an ARM 32bit processor however, and the sound can range from alright to downright awful depending on game. Still, it's more compact than a Sega Nomad and the battery can last up to 7 - 8 hours on one charge. You just can't plug real Genesis carts into it, but for me, it's no biggie.

Yeah, it could've made the SNES a little more competitive, but seeing as carts can get quite expensive to manufacture (e.g. with the N64), it wouldn't be that feasible.

As for the BP-4L, it appears to be a tad beefier than the BL-5C, though from what I noticed most Chinese gadgets, clones and other feature phones use the latter.

Unless if ATG shoved in a Motorola 68K workalike or some other SOC clone of the original Genesis hardware, their Flashback consoles would be, for one thing, ersatz. Of course most casual players won't mind, but while I may not necessarily go for the purist approach perhaps it would be best if they invested more time and money into making it closer to the real thing.

My old N97 uses a BP-4L -.-

It was a swell phone, too. Especially with it's built in ultra high quality audio recorder (Stereo recording!) with realtime noise cancellation, volume normalization, and direct, realtime encoding to AAC/MP4. Something no other phones have. Damn you Microsoft for killing off the best phone in the universe! Sparta

Don't get me wrong, the Blackberry Q5 is great, but it doesn't come with any recording software, and the one I have downloaded from Blackberry World is a steaming hot piece of turd that can't save to memory card -.-

Do you still have that old N97 laying around? If you do, then it might be possible to get a new battery for it since BP-4Ls are common.

Most of them replacements are either aftermarket, gray-market or counterfeit ones though.

Problem is, the phone itself is broken- the unlock switch has snapped, again. And since replacing the darn switch means replacing the whole lower case (the switch is molded into the case), yeah. It costs quite a lot. Not to mention that aftermarket cases for these are no longer made.

Exactly. It would probably be more or less a long shot to buy a replacement shell for my old 5320, considering as they're pretty much eclipsed by cheapo smartphones and all.
