8bitdo SNES30 GamePad

In this article I talk about the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad, Wireless Bluetooth controller for the Super Nintendo and other consoles and systems, acquired on AliExpress, shop Wisen Technology Co., Ltd.

I have spoken here in Skooter Blog about Retro Receiver SNES from 8bitdo, that lets you connect bluetooth controls Super Nintendo, and is the ideal partner for the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad.

The 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad is a wireless control bluetooth with design identical to the original control Super Nintendo. In conjunction with the Retro Receiver SNES from 8bitdo, You can use the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad on the Super Nintendo. The idea is excellent, combining the comfort of play with a wireless controller to the classic games Super Nintendo running on original hardware.

Of course, the possibilities don't end there. As or 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad is a bluetooth controller, You can also use it on PC, MAC or Android with their favorite games and emulators. You can also use it on current consoles, like Nintendo Switch. Por fim, You can also use it in other classic consoles, as the Nintendinho (NES) and the NES Clasic, via Retro NES Receiver and the Retro NES Classic Receiver.

In my case, got the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad for use in conjunction with the Retro Receiver SNES to my Super Nintendo. My original controls Super Nintendo are on active duty since 1993 and they deserve a break. Now they will be well stored while using the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad, wire-free.

The 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad has upgradeable firmware. The mine came with version 2.68, and updated it to version 3.0 as soon as he came. And now we're already in version 4.0. He is currently compatible with Windows, Android, MacOS, Steam, and Nintendo Switch. The micro USB port serves to recharge the battery and do the firmware updates, with the accompanying cable.

Speaking of the battery, She is lithium ion, has capacity 480mAh, What guarantees about 18 hours of gambling with a load of 1 a 2 hours. Not bad. The following operating modes are supported and can be selected easily by connecting the control: X-input, D-input, Mac mode, and Nintendo Switch mode.

The dimensions of the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad are the same as the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System joystick:144mm x 61 mm in diameter x 24 mm. The weight is 290 grams. Along with 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad, In addition to the USB cable also comes a commemorative keychain 30 years of the Famicom.

In my tests, I couldn't understand any latency in the use of 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad in conjunction with the Retro Receiver SNES from 8bitdo. Therefore, There is no disadvantage in using it, except maybe by the extra step on/off control and reboot it once in a while. But it is certainly a nuisance less than connect/disconnect the original control every time you play, wearing contacts, or leave it connected to the Super Nintendo all the time, collecting dust.

Check out some photos from the 8bitdo SNES30 GamePad:
