Are these PowerA wireless GameCube style Switch controllers any good?

Stay away from then! I bought one and exchanged it 2 times because of a problem they had.
The grip on the right thumbstick would peel off within a hour of using the controller.
It happened to all 3 that I had .
I ended up returning the last one because they looked bad. My 10 year+ gamecube controller looked better than the powerA controller that looked beat up.

yes they're good quality, although I get jumbled on controls because of the different positioning lol

They work great. Only big caveat for me is the batteries. I haven't had this peely stick problem that some people do.

Here is a photo of 1 of the PowerA wireless gamecube controller.

This was after a couple of hours playing smashbros with it.

I simply haven't had this problem, and the vast majority of people haven't. I've seen some people have this complaint though. Some people attribute it to fakes.

The ones I purchased where from walmart.
I doubt they where fake. 1 got 2 from a Walmart & the 3rd from a different walmart.
Different colors too.
Black ,gray , purple.
A shame because I liked the controller.

Yeah, I love mine. It's a great controller. It's the best gamecube style controller I've used, short of an actual gamecube controller.

It has motion controls but lacks rumble and an NFC reader correct?
