Passive PoE Injector Cable Set
Simplify your Internet of Things with a passive PoE injector cable. These are quite handy for projects that have Ethernet connectivity and also need a power cable.
Of course, you can get a long Ethernet cable but then you have to figure out how to plug it in, making a mess of wires. There is an official Power-over-Ethernet standard that allows devices and routers to activate a 48VDC power line on the unused Ethernet pins (4,5 and 7,8) but PoE is expensive, requiring a special router and then a step-down converter to handle the high 48V line
For DIY projects, you may want to consider using these cables instead. One cable (the injector half) has a Ethernet plug and port and a 2.1mm jack. When you plug in a power supply (say a 9VDC wall adapter), the injector merges the power adapter in so that pins 4 and 5 connect to the power adapter power and pins 7 and 8 have the ground signal. This is also known as "Mode B" compatibility The other cable (the extractor half) does the opposite, splitting off pins 4,5 and 7,8 and bringing them to a 2.1mm DC barrel plug. You can then use the DC plug to power your projects as if it was connected directly to the wall adapter.
These are NOT official/standard "Power Over Ethernet" cables and you cannot use these to provide power to an Arduino or other products from an official PoE host device (which will supply 48VDC). They must be used a pair!
Note that Ethernet cables, especially long ones, will act like resistors as you get past 10 meter spans. Most Ethernet cables are 24AWG, 0.085 ohms per meter (0.026 ohms per foot) so if you want to draw say 500mA from your adapter, there will be a 1 Volt drop for every ~25 meters / 80 feet.
Because these cables use pins 4,5,7, and 8 to pass power you can't use these in gigabit Ethernet situations (those pins would be used by the gigabit router), but your device and router should back down to 10/100 megabit in such cases.

This is an armor aluminum alloy case designed for the Raspberry Pi 4 computer model b. It is a great passive cooling case to help raspberry pi 4 board cooling down.
Note: the raspberry pi 4 board is not inlcuded in the packing list.
These spacers increase the internal height of our Modular Raspberry Pi Case by 10mm per spacer and can be stacked to increase the headroom further. Additional (longer) screws required - please read below notes.
If you’re running multiple Raspberry Pis as a cluster, mining rig, server farm or any other project using multiple boards, our expandable Raspberry Pi cluster fan case is a great way to stack, display and cool your setup.
Enclosure designed for Raspberry-PI boards in rectangular version and consists of two identical halves that fit togather. It has windows on four sides for direct access to components. Well suited for users who frequently connect and disconnect from the PCB ports.
Raspberry Pi® computer you just got has a row of 2x13 pin headers soldered on - those are the GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins and for those of us who like to hack electronics they are where the real fun is. By programming the Pi, you can twiddle those pins high or low, send and receive I2C and SPI data, and access the 3V and 5V power rails.
It is a good plastic box for Raspberry Pi, which can protect it with one of these snazzy plastic enclosures?. These cases protect the Raspberry Pi from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together. It has windows on four sides for direct access to components.
This is a one-fan Raspberry Pi radiator compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B/3B+/4B.
