In this article I talk about the Retro Receiver SNES from 8bitdo, which allows you to use Bluetooth controls Super Nintendo. He was acquired on AliExpress, first Fashion shop store. The store in question no longer has the product, so I left the link to the same product in another store.
I've talked here in Skooter Blog of one of the products of 8bitdo, that is Wireless Bluetooth controller Crissaegrim NES30 PRO 8Bitdo. But the 8bitdo not only do drivers. She also released receivers that allow you to connect your bluetooth controllers on Super Nintendo, in Nintendo (NES) and the NES Classic.
In the case of Super Nintendo, This product is the Retro Receiver SNES. Just connect it on the control input Super Nintendo and pairing it with a bluetooth controls 8bitdo. Soon! Wireless control in the classic Super Nintendo.
Along with Retro Receiver SNES I also bought a SNES30 of 8bitdo controller, that is a faithful copy of the original Super Nintendo control, but it is bluetooth. But, like SNES30 It took a little longer to get, My first tests were made with the Crissaegrim NES30 PRO.
The Retro Receiver SNES also comes with a USB cable, that serves to connect it to a PC and update the firmware. The mine came with version 1.21 and updated to version 1.23, that is the last available in 8bitdo Web site so far.
The Retro Receiver SNES has the connector of the Super Nintendo on one side and the other has: a micro USB port, a button used to activate pairing, and an LED that lights up in different colors according to the functionality enabled. In normal operation it turns blue.

And be sure to check also the video of unboxing and the Retro Receiver SNES operation:
In my tests the Retro Receiver SNES worked perfectly. Not fail in no time and didn't notice any kind of latency. The pairing is simple and need only be done once.
The Retro Receiver SNES can be permanently connected to the Super Nintendo, so that also ended the stress on the connectors, both the control and the console, to be connecting the control to play and disconnecting to keep it and not let collecting dust.
