 Here are some commercial powerdevices that are currently supported. These offer a real power cut, that means the Raspberry is really switched off. Usually these small power devices are plugged on top of the Raspberry using it's 40 Pin header. For further install instruction use the links provided. Here are some commercial powerdevices that are currently supported.

 +Also, for the NESPi4 case, you might experience some sluggishness using the HDD/SSD "cartridge". Here is [[https://www.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comments/i9f45b/retroflag_nespi_4_ssd_boot_slowness_and_workaround/|a Reddit link]] that gives you a way to fix it (even if the reddit post was written for RetroPie, it has been reported as OK on Batocera too).
