Ordered one. Do you have a link to a preferred battery?
Thank you for the order.
I used this:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Good-Qu ... Title=true
But you can use any 3.7V lithium battery with maximum sizes 4.5x50x80mm

At the request of buyers, I share the drawings of the case. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ZeeuZ ... zghz0Jvz6N
This is done by milling. After glueing the laser cutting acrile may crack.

I might have missed it - but

Is it possible to play while charging?

and soldering the zero to the board, making sure I have understood correctly:
- no pins, wire or similar is used? The board is aligned with two pins, solder is heated on the pi side and melts into the hole and makes the connection to the board?

can't wait to receive it, looks well thought out.

regards
Bo

Yes, it's possible. In the next version of the manual I add it.

Yes, you understood everything correctly.
I will try to make a video instruction as quickly as a possible.

Thanks for the quick reply, if you are doing a video, would you mind also doing one showing it of a bit?

Is it possible for me to use a normal pi zero? I've got a spare and tempted to use it on this project
