    hi guys just got myself a samsung galaxy tab a for when im away on courses .

    i like the odd game or two but hate using the onscreen controls

    is there a wired pad like the little snes ones out there as its small and easy to carry about that i can use .

    as the tablet is a usb c port will it just be a case of using a usb-usb-c converter , dont realy want to spend a lot and use it wired not bluetooth

    Wired? Not really.

    Well, there is this... https://www.8bitdo.com/sn30-pro-usb-gamepad/ No idea how or even if it'd work though.

    I've used Ipega 9017S and more recently the 8Bitdo N30 Pro and they work very nicely indeed. Given how cheap the Ipega was, it's surprisingly fine.

    If its usb c, I bought a male usb c to usb 2 female adapter from somewhere familiar for 4 quid and use an xbox controller or any other you desire
