How to set a frontlight screen? Or backlight is better?

I dont have one, but i dont really want to play with the original Game Boy Advance in the day all the time instead of night time. I would like to install one, to play it night time and day time. Also, does this damage the screen? Or the batteries run dry quick?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Using a front light mod will drain the batteries a little more quickly than without it. It's a small compromise in order to play day & night without a light source to reflect off of. A backlight mod is much better but more expensive to deal with.

As long as the front or back light mods are installed correctly, there will be no damage to the device. This is beside any areas you may need to cut on the plastic shell to get ribbons or wires to sit correctly. Check out some videos on YouTube to get a better idea of modding them. Check out "This Does Not Compute" on YouTube for a front light mod tutorial.
