Re: Raspberry Pi case design ready for mass production

Very nice work, assuming it ends up with mounting holes of some kind, this would definitely be what I was looking for.

Re: Computer case for housing

<t>So I have made a little housing setup for my future Raspberry Pi"s out of an old computer case. On the top I have a switch and on bottom a seven port USB 2.0 hub, with a 5v/4A charger, for power/data transfer. So far all I"ve done is attach the power and splice the old fan to a usb cord to give i...

Re: ATX PSU as Power supply

<t>Kind of a side note/info that may help. I noticed that when just idling, it was using 9 Watts, when I plugged the phone in, it jumps to 14.3. Now maybe I am wrong here but 5.3 watts/5.05 Volts should be just around 1 amp?? It easily takes twice as long to charge with the psu hookup than the 1 amp...

Re: ATX PSU as Power supply

<t>Ah, well that makes perfect sense. Now, the cable I am using only has a red and black cable, no data cables that I can tell, any other way to set that "dumb" signal with that setup? I actually cut an old USB wall to charger I had sitting around. The wall charger was charging the phone with 700mA(...

Re: ATX PSU as Power supply

<t>I had a quick question for those who had a better understand wiring/electricity and what not. I was hoping(more of just a possibility) to mess with using a standard old computer power supply to power a few Raspberry Pi's.<br/> <br/> I stripped a micro usb cable, hooked it to the 5v and ground on ...

Re: Case Design - Raspi Model B Box

Maybe a change so they could be stackable and not just slide off if resting on top of one an other?
