Raspberry Pi 5 Essential Kit - 8GB

Added to your shopping cart

The Raspberry Pi 5 comes with some layout and power requirement changes. For those upgrading an existing project to the Raspberry Pi 5, this kit includes the parts that you'll need to update. The 5 is a lot more power hungry, so included is the new 27W Type-C PD Wall Adapter (North American Plug). In more than just a new configuration; the new official case also includes a fan, a previously sold-separately component. The new case also features the ability to mount HATs to the Pi 5 while keeping it protected.

These two components are included in this kit with an 8GB model of the new Raspberry Pi 5.

    Would you recommend this if this is your first R-Pi?

      It depends on the use case. But generally the 5 or the Zero 2 W would be the best options at the time of this comment.
