The VG Pocket Caplet is a 16-bit handheld manufactured by JungleTac and distributed by Performance Designed Products.

The VG Pocket Caplet's graphics are considered an improvement over those of the earlier VG Pocket models, with a very bright 2.5" backlit 320×240 TFT display (the package claims its resolution is 960×240, counting the RGB triads to make 3× the number of pixels). The unit has a separate "starter kit" that includes a carrying case and an AV cable unique to the system. The VG Pocket Caplet comes in four colors: blue, silver, red, or orange; and is powered by three AAA batteries.


The VG Pocket Caplet has 50 built-in games (35 in earlier units), three of which are licensed arcade ports: Space Invaders, Bust-A-Move, and BurgerTime. Many of the included games are listed under a different name than on other JungleTac consoles. Like with most handhelds with built-in games, the high scores and game progress cannot be saved.
