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.


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.

    Works great

    So far so good. This has fixed my problem of the old controller pak losing my data, even though the battery was still good. So far this has kept all my data and reads and writes just as fast as it should. Great product.

    Was getting back to Gaming on my N64 again, but my memory pak battery had died and read as corrupted, I decided to get the Forever Pak 64 after some online research and it works great and fits my Brawler 64 Controller like a glove. Would def recommend.

    Kiss your old, volatile controller paks goodbye!

    Posted by Patrick on Jan 13th 2024

    If you grew up with N64, you know how volatile those official and unofficial controller paks were. Lost, corrupted save files were so common, but I`m thankful this thing washes away all that anxiety! Works just like the old ones but with no issues in saving/formatting/risk of losing files.

    Modern Solution to a Retro Problem

    Posted by Nate on Aug 31st 2023

    These are such an awesome product for anyone who loves retro gaming or the N64. Those of us who play retro games just as much as modern games have really been spoiled lately with all of the updated/modern tech being created for old systems. The Forever Pak 64 is another instance where the product feels futureproof and as though we finally have a perfect solution for an old retro console problem.
