Aluminum case for Raspberry Pi 4

Wed Jan 22, 2020 3:33 am

Hello,

After having made a case for the previous Raspberry Pi 3 and 3B+ and following your feedback, we have made a new high-quality, anodized and engraved aluminum case for the latest Raspberry Pi 4, that allow to cool the Pi passively using the enclosure as a heatsink. In addition to the existing features from the previous enclosure (passive cooling, programmable pushbutton, different anodization colors), we have added a Micro SD Card protection cap, that can be put on or not, to allow you to protect your Raspberry Pi SD Card from being removed by potential users.

Here are some renderings of the case:

The cases are available and you can find more information on our shop here:

We'd like to know your feedback and what you think of it!

Actual pictures of the case should come soon!

Cheers,

A bit pricey for me, but still a very nice case. It could use 2 or more buttons, because the Pi reset jumper and and shutdown via GPIO 2 would require 2 separate buttons. There are no photos of the underside of the top and the underside of the base. Are there any features for attaching the case to a vertical surface?

Really neat looking,

I can only assume that the cost reflects the engineering employed to contain a fierce fresh water fish to stop the users from damaging the sd card.

Go Guard Carps..
Aluminum Micro SD Card protection carp to protect the Micro SD from the user;
No wonder all my fake sd cards failed on me I didnt have a guard carp on duty DOH!
off to check prices for guard carps..

Why can I always spot other peoples typo's but never my own.... :mrgreen:

Haha :D But this is a thing for real. With the previous Raspberry Pi 3 case many people came back saying they have projects involving putting a Raspberry Pi in a public space, and the annoying thing with the Pi is that anybody can just come and take the Micro SD Card! Thus the cap to protect the Micro SD Card from their users(not the maker) ;)
