SteelSeries Gaming Controller

There are two great SteelSeries gaming controllers on the market right now, the Nimbus+ which is best suited to iPhone, OS, iPad, and Apple TV, and the Stratus+ which is ideal for Android and PC use. Which of these suits your need best is going to be pretty obvious! While I use mine to play games on my tablet while I’m streaming Xbox Cloud, they’re great for native gaming too. I actually had a couple of these on our arcade cabinet, allowing us to add players 3 and 4.

It’s a potent controller to use though, as it’s broadly compatible with so many devices. It can be used via Bluetooth LE or by USB Type-C. Plus, thanks to the built-in lithium-ion battery, it’s good for up to 90 hours of use. For those long-haul flights, you’ll be able to game your heart out and battery issues will not be a concern.

For a little extra cash, you can get the optional slim-profile phone mount too, which makes it feel a bit like the original Nvidia Shield, which I absolutely loved. There are a lot of emulators on my phone too, so this controller and mount are a perfect match.


  • Game anywhere on an Android™ or Chromebook device
  • Included slim phone mount adjusts to Android mobile devices for smartphone gaming
  • 90+ hours of mobile gameplay with a fast charge function
  • High-performance hardware engineered with ALPS thumbsticks and Hall Effect triggers

About the Stratus+

“The Stratus+ controller is optimized for portable gaming on Android and Chromebook devices, equipped with an adjustable, slim-fit phone mount to game in comfort. Seamlessly connect your controller to any Android or Chromebook device with energy-efficient Bluetooth LE, or to any Windows PC via USB-C to A connection.”

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
