Hacked Mini MicroSD adapter #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


Mini MicroSD adapter. Ryan writes –

Well I got my raspberry pi in the mail yesterday, and one of the issues I had right off the bat was the ugly SD card sticking out the side. Why couldn’t they use micro or even mini SD? (is mini around anymore?..) Well until I get around to using the soldering iron and fitting my own micro SD card slot on the board, I figured this would work. I cut away parts of the SD card adapter, and folded the pins back, it holds the SD card well and its tucked in, out of the way. One less piece sticking out that I can break off.
