Re: Anyone tried Zero LiPo ?

Saw pimonori have something called Zero LiPo with enable pin and lower battery detection so you can shutdown the pi gracefully. A bit cheaper than the Powerboost 1000c in the UK at least.

Re: Help with SketchUp

I did a mockup print to see if it's physically possible to fit the zero in cartridge. The zero seems a little thicker than the available space inside the cartridge.
