The SFC30 Pro is the world's most advanced multi-purpose, wireless controller. It features dual bumpers/triggers, haptic vibration feedback, dedicated home and screenshot buttons, motion detection, clickable joysticks, as well as a standard control set.
It connects to your devices using Bluetooth 4.0 or the included USB C cable, and it supports the largest collection of devices to date. It can also be upgraded via firmware releases to keep up to date with new tech, so it's always ahead of the curve.
For those wondering about the difference between the SF30 and SN30 Pro, the only difference between the two is the colour scheme. The SN30 Pro features grey and two-tone purple as per the American release of the original SNES controller. The X and Y buttons are also concave rather than convex. The SF30 Pro has multi-coloured buttons which are all convex as per the international SNES console (which we all know and love here in Australia).

Ideally, some prior soldering experience is advantageous but if you take your time and practice before you start it's beginner friendly! The battery will give just over 3 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the handy micro USB port. System updates, ROM transfers etc all possible with the Pi Zero W' built in...

- Mass SD card Image Writer
We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards.
