Remember those cereal commercials that would always say, «part of a complete breakfast»? Well the Pi Zero’s a lot like that bowl of cereal — while it’s great on its own, you need a lot of accessories to make it a complete meal.
The Pi Zero Budget Pack is almost everything you need to get going with your Pi Zero and make it a complete meal. Check out our writeup on the Pi Zero over at the Adafruit Learning System
Note: Due to popular demand, there might be some delay in shipping products containing Pi Zero!
This pack includes:
- Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 — the type of low cost game-changing product Raspberry Pi’s known for — a super light, super lean microcomputer
Note: This does NOT include the new Pi Zero W. This includes the original Pi Zero v1 model, which does NOT include built-in Bluetooth and WiFi. If you are trying to buy the trendy new Pi Zero W Budget Pack, you are not on the right page!
- Adafruit Raspberry Pi Zero Case — our sleek, simple, rugged Pi Zero case!
- Mini HDMI to HDMI Adapter — Will let you convert the little port on the Zero to a standard sized HDMI jack. You can get 1080P HDMI video + audio out of this little computer!
- USB OTG Cable — Lets you plug in a normal USB device such as WiFi dongle, USB hub, keyboard, mouse, etc into the Zero.
- 8GB SD Card — May come blank or pre-burned with NooBs!
- 5V 1A Power Supply & USB A/Micro B Cable OR 5V 2.4A Power Supply w/ Micro USB Cable — the best way to power up your Pi Zero with a stable 5V power supply that wont vary or sag.
- 2×20 Male header strip — Solder this in to plug in Pi HATs, GPIO cables, etc as you would into a normal Pi. (We also have a 2×20 Female and 2×20 Female right-angle style for more exotic connecting)
We also strongly recommend some other parts and pieces to make your Pi Zero computing experience easier (THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED!)
- Pi Zero Protector - Keep your Pi Zero safe while handling with this simple sandwich-style acrylic case.
- USB Console cable — if you’re not going to stick an HDMI monitor on there, then this is essential, you connect the wires to the GPIO pins and log in over a serial console. Its the easiest & fastest way to get on your Pi
- USB Powered Hub — So you can plug in any kind of USB devices without overloading the Zero’s power supply. (You can also, ironically, power the Zero from the hub itself by plugging in a micro USB cable into the hub)
- WiFi dongle — this chipset is the most common one used for the Raspberry Pi, works great!
- Mini Wireless Keyboard w/Trackpad — Requires only one USB port, which makes it a great match for the Pi Zero
- Wireless Keyboard + Mouse set — Also requires only one USB port, but for everyday use.
- Pi Cobbler or T-Cobbler — When paired with the male or female 2×20 pin header, you can use your Zero with a breadboard to connect sensors, LEDs, motors and more!
- Ethernet Hub and USB Hub w/ Micro USB OTG Connector — One can never have enough socks, or USB ports. Add some more USB and Ethernet capability to your Raspberry Pi Zero!
