Raspberry Pi Power Strip.

Who needs a case for their Raspberry Pi when everyone already has a perfectly good surge protector? A surge protector/power strip is something that never gets in the way, is often tucked away somewhere with no attention paid to it, already has RJ-45 and power input – it’s perfect!

This project actually draws its inspiration from the Power Pwn, an awesome device from Pwnie Express. The only problem with the Power Pwn (for us, at least) is its prohibitive price tag. So while very cool, and loaded with some pretty nifty hardware and software, AJ and I set out to build our own.

Features our low profile microSD card adapter and USB to TTL Serial Cable.
