Some ideas and prices in UK[edit]

I just bought a couple of Pi Zero W's and SD cards to make a couple of InaB's to try out myself.

Plastic boxes can be anything from a couple of £GBP to around £5 for a custom-made one. I already have rechargeable 18650 lithium batteries, so I don't need the power supply; anyway there are plenty on Amazon, etc. The cheapest high-capacity one I found was on eBay. A charger cable "OTG") is about £1 on eBay or https://www.kenable.com - prices should be comparable in $USD or CAD$. --RexxS (talk) 19:01, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Perfect thanks User:RexxS. I am looking for 100 of them. Will be looking at a custom case in think as want it a little more enclosed. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 06:17, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Now I've tested them, those unbranded micro SD cards are poor. It looks like it's worth spending a few more pounds and buying branded ones, so I've ordered a Toshiba and a Sandisk card to test out. I'll let you know how those perform. --RexxS (talk) 06:42, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
