Forever Pak 64 256KB Battery-free Memory Pak for Nintendo 64

The Problem

Original, official N64 controller paks store their save files on battery-backed SRAM chips. These volatile chips only store data when they are supplied power, which is supplied by the battery. But once the battery dies, so does your data stored on the chip it was powering. This means every controller pak, along with the data on them, is on a ticking timer. While new batteries can be soldered in, lost save files cannot be recovered, and the pak will eventually run out of battery and cease to function again.

The Solution

Rather than using battery backed memory, forever paks use modern, advanced, nonvolatile memory. The memory chips are not battery backed, allowing it to last indefinitely. The Forever Pak has 256kb of storage, the same as an original OEM pak. 

The Good Stuff

Forever Pak uses high-quality injection molds with high-grade plastics. Custom circuit boards utilize gold plated contacts, with beveled edges to help prolong the life of your controller.  It feels like the real deal, but for the absolute purists out there, Forever Pak's circuit board is compatible with the original controller memory pak's shell. This means our PCB can be installed in an official first-party shell without any modifications to the shell, should you desire.

You Get a Sticker

Each Forever Pak comes with 2 sticker labels that can be applied to the face of the cart. These are useful for writing down what's saved on the game pak. Or you can leave the pak blank and stick them on your forehead. The choice is yours. We wont judge.

Color Conscious 

Our injection molded shells were carefully tuned to match the official controller colors. Everyone has a favorite N64, and unlike their matching controllers, you don't have to pay extra to get the one you want.

FAQ

Q: Does the Forever Pak work with the Dex Drive?

A: We have been told it works with the Dex Drive but it must be formatted using the Dex Drive before you begin playing and saving. 

 

PLEASE NOTE:
THIS IS A CONTROLLER MEMORY PAK FOR SAVING GAMES. IT IS NOT THE MEMORY EXPANSION PAK THAT IS INSTALLED IN THE CONSOLE.

    I love this memory card because I don`t have to worry about my saves being erased from a old battery I highly recommend it. I also like the colors and the quality is excellent.

    Amazing

    Posted by Robert Guidry on Jul 23rd 2023

    I`ve been playing n64 since it came out my whole life, I recently had 2 performance memory paks give out. I had saves I wanted to keep of my fathers after he passed away. No one has played this console more then him. I even lost my completed shadowman file and my over 2 decades of frags in rage wars. These memory paks will blow you away in terms of quality and reliability. Don`t be afraid to swap to a rumble pak when the game says to do so. The colors pop and look amazing, if you are an everdrive user you can also make copies of your memory cards onto the cart if you are still worried. There`s no telling what new mods or homebrew we`ll get in the future, get these things now.

    Works great!

    Posted by Danielle on Jul 19th 2023

    Wanted to play Gauntlet Legends but our original N64 memory pak died out. This one works perfectly and shouldn`t have the same battery-related lifespan issue as the original. Has a nice color and fits in the controller perfectly just like the original did. Recommended!

    Perfect solution for those getting into the N64!

    Posted by Ivan A Morales on Jun 20th 2023

    For those who don`t know, the original Controller Pak for the N64 is known for their rampant corruption due to using battery backup, even with OED Controller Pak`s. This however, replaces the battery for flash memory, which is PERFECT for those wanting to save games with high amounts of notes. Currently using this for ISS 98 and it`s just what I need, especially when I`m also able to connect it to USB to transfer the notes to dropbox and replace saves whenever I wish!

    Blue Forever Pak

    Posted by Sean Corron on May 17th 2023

    Excellent build quality, in a form fitting, attractive box. The Forever Pak is OEM level quality, and works with absolutely no issues. This is the kind of reliable solution I wanted for my N64 saves, and I`ll probably buy a few more of these. Very happy!

    Fantastic Upgrade

    Posted by Andy Pachkofsky on Feb 4th 2023

    So glad I was able to get this and transfer all my saves over to this new Memory Pak without worrying about my saves being lost. Was able to preserve my Mario Kart 64 ghost times and Rayman 2 save data. Thanks Stone Age Gamer!
