Please note that this product is NOT compatible with Android OS (smartphones or boxes), iOS (iPhone, iPad etc). Bluetooth is not supported. It is for use on Windows PC and Raspberry Pi via the included USB wireless dongle only.

The DroiX R1 gamepad is the best choice of controller for Windows PC and Raspberry Pi. The DroiX R1 uses 2.4Ghz wireless signal from the controller to the included wireless USB receiver. 

You can switch between X (PlayStation controller) and D (Xbox controller) emulation input methods via the switch present on the back of the controller. It requires no additional setup to pair to the receiver.

The wireless controller has four gaming buttons, a D-Pad, dual analogue sticks with L3 and R3, and four shoulder buttons (L1,L2,R1,R2), and HOME, START and SELECT buttons. This gives the best compatibility with a range of games and retro gaming.

The DroiX R1 has built-in Dual Shock Vibration for immersive gameplay. The Windows controller is comfortable to hold and play with for longer sessions of gaming due to its ergonomic design and high quality materials used.

When used on Raspberry Pi with software such as a RetroPie controller you will need to initially assign the buttons as with any first use of a new controller.

The battery will easily get you through a long gaming session, with a capacity of 500mAh. The included 5V charging cable can be plugged into any USB charger or USB port to continue playing while charging if needed.
