It looks really slick, Rodocop.

Do you know if those water slide decals show up on a black case? (assuming you print in non-black ink that is) Or would it be like printing in color on a sheet of black paper?

Thanks!

Also. The question about water slide decals should be directed at veterangamer not me. I've never used them before.

Nice build as always!
I'm curious, how is it possible that you don't need a power boost?
Isn't the tp4056 just a charger?How the battery can directly power the raspberry?

The pi runs off battery voltage, so does the screen, therefore no need to boost to 5v

I'm using an spi screen. Which runs fine off battery voltage. (Unlike the composte screen which pretty much all need 5v).

All other components run well off 2.5-5v, so no boost is necessary. Which is why I opt to only use the tp4056.

I did not know that rasperry could be powered directly from the battery and with less than 5 volts...good to know!

Yeah the pi just regulates the voltage back down to 3.3v anyways for the SoC to use.
