It took awhile to perfect – but that’s okay since we can now safely say that the Adafruit case for Raspberry Pi Model B+ is The Single Greatest Raspberry Pi Model B+ Case Ever.
This enclosure was designed by Mike Doell – just like our elegant, beautiful, and functional Pi Case for Raspberry Pi Model B. Made of ultra-durable, super-glossy polycarbonate, it is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your bookbag or toolbox. It has slim openings for all your cables, an easy-to-remove beveled slot for your Micro SD card, slots for both your Pi Camera and upcoming Display, and a space for your GPIO cable to extend out from the Pi.
The Pi snaps into the base and the lid fits snugly onto the top. If you want to break out your Pi you can use your case without the lid and add hats to your B+ with ease.
This is the basic, classic enclosure with a smoke base and a clear top. More colors are coming soon and we’ll have packs to mix and match for ultimate Raspberry Pi B+ enclosure fun, but we’ll be starting out with this very neutral gray/clear combo.
This case works for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ only. It does not work for the Raspberry Pi Model A or B. It does work with the model A+ but there will be a bit of empty space of course, and you’ll need to snake your USB cable or connector through the front holes which may not work if the cable is bulky
No Pi, cables, or Pi Camera included. This product is just the case!
