RTC pHAT/SHIM that can be used with Pibow Zero W case?

Tue May 30, 2017 7:58 pm

I'm looking for a RTC pHAT or shim that can be used with a Pimoroni Pibow Zero W case, and long header, so I can install another pHAT on top, such as Pimoroni's Scroll pHAT HD. Any suggestions?

AB electronic's RTC Pi Zero has its battery on the bottom side, so it most probably conflicts with the Pibo Zero W case. Or am I mistaken and the batter is actually on top?
From ZX81 to Raspberry Pi, but wait ... where's the 7805 gone?

Do you own a Dremel Tool or the equivalent? If yes, just use a cutting wheel to make a cutout in the top layer. Or don't use the top layer at all. Not really needed if your putting a pHat on top anyway.
