Raspberry Pi Covers: Protects Your Powerful Device and Extend Its Life

Mar 30th 2015 at 4:45 AM

If you have big plans for your Raspberry Pi, one of the most important things you will need for it is a case. There are many different types to choose from, with the best ones offering durability, easy board access, port access, and of course, style.

Many manufacturers have released their own lines of cases for Raspberry Pi, so it can be a little confusing to shop for one. There is no such thing as a ‘best’ cover. Your choice will really depend on your requirements. The key is to find covers that are both stylish and functional.

You want your Raspberry Pi cover to fit your Pi snugly so that it does not rattle. It should have a clear acrylic base and top so that you can see the Pi inside. Look for easy ‘snap fit’ design, so that there are cut-outs that provide access to USB, LAN, MSD ports, and other such hardware features. Well-designed cases route power to the same side as USB and Ethernet, keeping cables tidy. The SD card may be slot-loaded on the bottom. Some Raspberry Pi covers even features like movable covers for video and audio ports, which is handy when not in use.


Most Raspberry Pi covers are crafted from several layers of acrylic. They are available in all imaginable colours, from completely clear to translucent ‘crystal’ colours to electric green. Price ranges vary widely—the basic clear ones go for about £4.99 and fancier versions are sold for as high as £15.

More expensive Raspberry Pi covers made of aluminium go for as high as $50. These covers are referred to as ‘all-aluminium uni-body cases with ventilation. Typically cut from blocks of solid aluminium, they have port access and changeable case toppers. Some designs are even stackable, allowing you to put multiple Pis on top of each other.

Getting the Best Value

If you are buying large quantities or simply want to get the lowest prices on Raspberry Pi covers, buy from a website that sells high quality Pi products and accessories to schools, as well as directly to parents. The best suppliers and distributors can provide educational software and accessories at amazing prices, perfect for use in schools and at home. They have online shopping tools to allow you to pay for your purchases online and simply wait for delivery. A good Raspberry Pi cover supplier offers a wide selection of good looking, functional, and thoughtfully designed cases as well as Raspberry Pi teaching kits, starter kits, keyboards, memory, cables, networking, and other accessories.
