Explorer-I is a third-party arcade stick for the Sega Mega Drive, created by Champ. Many types of Explorer exist for various consoles in several colour schemes - Mega Drive versions come in white or grey. The Mega Drive Explorer is a three button stick with turbo features, styled similarly to a NES Advantage. For whatever reason, the box features artwork from Super Thunder Blade.

It was released in Taiwan as the Explorer-I by Honyü, and as the Power Mate by Teqniche.
