    I'm trying to source Switch controllers that take (rechargeable) AA or AAA batteries.

    So far I've only managed to find:
    - PowerA Enhanced Wireless (older version - AA version being discontinued?)
    - 8bitdo SN30 Pro+ (takes both proprietary rechargeable and AAs - much like the Xbox)
    - 8bitdo Gbros Wireless Adapter (not a controller, but an adapter that takes AAs to power and connect wired controllers)

    Any others out there?
    Do any of the cheaper Chinese controllers take AAs?
    Any recommendations from Amazon?

    I have multiple reasons for wanting AA, but the main one is that AAs are more child friendly and safer than having them mess around with electrical cables and outlets unsupervised etc...
    I also intend to gift some of these controllers to friends and family, so while I am looking for quality, it would be nice to explore cheaper options other than the ones above...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!
