ArcadeNano Colour is the colour version of ArcadeNano. It is powered through a Mini-USB jack.

Unlike the monochrome version, there is no lighium polymer battery as the circuit requires exactly 5 V due to the RGB LEDs, and there was no space left on the circuit board for a voltage converter. An external 5 V supply can be connected to the "Ext" solder pads on the bottom of the circuit board. The on/off switch then switches between USB and "Ext" supply.
