NEW PRODUCTS – Raspberry Pi Zero Starter Pack / Raspberry Pi Zero Budget Pack / Raspberry Pi Zero

Remember those cereal commercials that would always say, “part of a complete breakfast”? Well the Pi Zero’s a lot like that bowl of cereal – while it’s great on its own, you need a lot of accessories to make it a complete meal.


Raspberry Pi Zero Starter Pack

The Pi Zero Starter Pack is everything you need to get going with your Pi Zero and make it a complete meal.

This full-featured pack includes:

  • Raspberry Pi Zero – the type of low cost game-changing product Raspberry Pi's known for – a super light, super lean microcomputer
  • 8GB Class 10 SD Card – A SD card that's perfect for burning Raspbian Jessie for the Pi Zero
  • Mini HDMI to HDMI Adapter – Will let you convert the little port on the Zero to a standard sized HDMI jack. You can get 1080P HDMI video + audio out of this little computer!
  • USB OTG Cable – Lets you plug in a normal USB device such as WiFi dongle, USB hub, keyboard, mouse, etc into the Zero.
  • 5V 1A Power Supply & USB A/Micro B Cable – the best way to power up your Pi Zero with a stable 5V power supply that wont vary or sag.
  • Assembled Pi T-Cobbler Plus –  Solder in the classic 2×20 male header & connect your GPIO cable, and breakout all that tasty power onto a solderless breadboard.
  • 2×20 Male Header – Solder this in to plug in Pi HATs, GPIO cables, etc as you would into a normal Pi.
  • 2×20 Female Header – This one's neat – if you solder on a 2×20 female header 'upside down' you can plug the Pi right into the T-Cobbler in an adorable fashion! No GPIO cable required
  • 2×20 Female Header (right angle) – Kinda like the above but the Pi sticks right up.
  • WiFi dongle – this chipset is the most common one used for the Raspberry Pi, works great! The best way to get your Pi Zero hooked up to the internet to start IoTing
  • USB Console cable – if you're not going to stick an HDMI monitor on there, then this is essential, you connect the wires to the GPIO pins and log in over a serial console. Its the easiest & fastest way to get on your Pi

Raspberry Pi Zero

At first glance, the Pi Zero isn’t much. It just looks like a slimmed down version of the Raspberry Pi we know and love. But when we started to think of the possibilities – and what a well-chosen set of accessories could add – we realized the appeal. And then we saw the price…could it be true? Yes!

This is the slimmest, most pared down Raspberry Pi to date. It’s kind of like the little cousin to the Pi 2 – with just a micro SD card slot, a mini HDMI port, two micro USB ports (one for power, one for USB), and a 256MB of RAM. It has the same single-core 700MHz processor chip as the Pi A+ and B+.

We think the Zero is a great sidekick for existing Raspberry Pi users. It requires a little more effort to get up and running than a Pi 2 but it also has a lot of potential for IoT, wearable, embedded and battery powered projects!

To keep the price and size as small as possible, there is a spot on the Zero for a 2×20 pin header. This header is not included or soldered on. Creative individuals can easily solder in a set of 2×20 male header strip so you can plug in any sort of Pi HAT or other plug-in topper. Or, go with a 2×20 female header and plug the Pi Zero directly into an Adafruit Cobbler or T-Cobbler.

We also strongly recommend some other parts and pieces to make your Pi Zero computing experience easier (THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED in the Starter Pack nor the Budget Pack!)

  • Pi Zero Protector – Keep your Pi Zero safe while handling with this simple sandwich-style acrylic case.
  • USB Powered Hub – So you can plug in any kind of USB devices without overloading the Zero's power supply. (You can also, ironically, power the Zero from the hub itself by plugging in a micro USB cable into the hub)
  • Mini Wireless Keyboard w/Trackpad – Requires only one USB port, which makes it a great match for the Pi Zero
  • Wireless Keyboard + Mouse set – Also requires only one USB port, but for everyday use.
