...i really need to find out where Nintendo hid the hole to plug in a power cord on my pink GBA! not the square flat one,but the rectangular one they came up with after the GBC....my husband is ticked at having to shell out $5 a pack for batteries every two weeks! :P

You can find a GBA AC adapter in shops, or on Ebay. Try Ebay first though. Shops will rip you off BIG TIME.

Yup, stores (espceially foreign gift shops) will rip you off. I got a beret in France that cost me 15 euro. I got another for 5 euro. :(
And I wasted 22 pounds in England on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , which I never liked. Plus the cover is weird. *realizes is going wayyyy off topic*
*a-hem* Anyway, try E-Bay. Good reliable source.

...i have an power cord-one of those multi ones-but what i can't figure out is where it goes on the game machine. i can see where the headphone jack goes,and where the plug goes to connect it to the Cube,but not where to plug in a power cord. i have a sinking feeling that Nintendo didn't put one on....

I think you buy an attackment and put it on the battery pack (where the batteries would normally go) . My friend has that...

...aww,rats! that is such a bummer....always something else to have to buy....wish they would stop that!

i'm still teed about the move to the disc,away from cartridge in the Cube...that is a really bad idea,especially when you have small kids,or kids with poor muscular control. to me,better graphics isn't worth the tradeoff,losing the onboard game storage,and sturdier game....

Yeah, on the GBA (not SP) there is no AC port, per say. You have to buy an attactment that fits into the battery compartment. They used to be fairly cheap, but now, since nintedo is hyping the SP, DS, and GB Micro, you might have a hard time finding on cheap in a store. You might see one at a gaming shop for 30$ if you're lucky, otherwise be ready to pay more, although I can't speak for E-Bay's prices.
