Re: [Question] Powerboost 1000 Basic and 4x AA

That all makes sense and I think I'll do that split so it'll be 2 sets of AAs running at 3v.

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

Re: Pi Zero back in stock! [09:38 GMT 25/05/2016]

I don't mean to be rude, and I appreciate the notice of new stock, but we need to focus RPi availability into one thread.

Re: Raspberry Pi 0 now available!

All six of mine arrived. I know I'm that jerk that ordered multiple, but they're all going into gameboy zeros for friends and family.
I won't be shirking them for a higher price.
