After we had already tested several controllers from the American manufacturer PowerA, for the Xbox Series X|S and also the Xbox One, another model now follows. The PowerA Spectra Infinity Enhanced Wired Controller is an officially licensed and wired controller with additional features.
These features include two rumble motors and two additional buttons that can be freely assigned, as we already know from the Enhanced Wired Controller. Also new are the three-way trigger locks, which PowerA also offers on the high-priced FUSION Pro 2. From a purely visual standpoint, the Spectra Infinity looks like a simple black Xbox controller, but it offers RGB lighting with many color variations.
Whether PowerA can convince primarily with RGB or also with the additional features and thus offers a good alternative to the Microsoft controller, we clarify in the following test.
|Size||109 x 160 x 65 mm (H x W x D)|
|cables||3 m Micro-USB to USB-A|
|Compatibility||Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC|
|Features||2 additional buttons, 2 rumble motors, three-way trigger locks, volume control, RGB lighting|
|Scope of delivery||Controller, micro USB cable|
Scope of delivery
The Spectra Infinity Enhanced Wired Controller ships in a compact, black cardboard box. With shiny effects and plenty of pictures, PowerA points out the RGB lighting. Inside the box, in addition to the controller, is a black, braided micro-USB cable and a quick start guide. The scope of delivery is thus minimalistic, but offers everything that is needed and expected in this price range.
