You're going to work hard with your Raspberry Pi 2 Model B or Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+. You're going to have to solder, code, and Linux your Maker heart out. That's why Adafruit have tried to make it as easy as possible to start - by combining the Raspberry Pi with what we think are the best beginners' Pi accessories into one easy to use kit.
Adafruit have hand chosen these accessories as the perfect accompaniment to your new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B or Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+. It's everything you need to get going with a high quality power supply, Raspbian SD card, case, WiFi adapter, console cable, and lots of prototyping essentials. It's a great jumping off point for the rest of Adafruit's extensive accessory and pack collection.
This pack DOES NOT include a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B or Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ Computer!
This pack contains:
- Adafruit Raspberry Pi 2 or B+ Case - Smoke Base / Clear Top - Adafruit are selling the Raspberry Pi B+ Starter Pack with Adafruit's brand new Pi Case. We think it's the Single Greatest Raspberry Pi 2 or Model B+ Case Ever - though our Pi Box Plus is also nothing to scoff at.
- Adafruit Assembled Pi Cobbler Plus - This is the soldered together version of Adafruit's popular Pi Cobbler Plus Kit. Comes with a breakout board that's perfect for cobbling prototypes as well as a 40-pin GPIO cable for your Pi's pins.
- Full Size Breadboard - In the past, Adafruit have used the half-size breadboard for a lot of Pi projects - but no longer! WIth 40 pins to break out, you're going to need some space - and that's why Adafruit are including a full size breadboard in this pack.
- Premium Male/Male Jumper Wires - 20 x 6" (150mm) - These jumper wires are great for making wire harness or jumpering between headers on PCBs. We include the longer ones so they work well with the full-size breadboard.
- USB to TTL Serial Cable - An old standby, this cable's pretty much the easiest way to connect your Raspberry Pi to a USB port to log into the debugging/login console. Ideal for running the Pi 'headless'
- USB WiFi Module - Give your Rasp Pi the Internet with this USB port WiFi module, this module is compact but has great range and is plenty fast.
- 4GB SD card for Raspberry Pi preinstalled with Raspbian Wheezy - 4GB microSDHC card programmed with the latest Raspberry Pi Linux distribution.
- 5V 2A Switching Power Supply w/ 6' MicroUSB Cable or 5V 2A Switching Power Supply with USB port + 6' MicroUSB Cable - The 5V 2A power adapter is the perfect choice for powering your Raspberry Pi B+ with 2 Amps of current output, and an extra long cord.
- Embroidered Raspberry Pi Badge - Now that you're getting started, show off your Pi Pride with this beautifully embroidered, jewel toned, iron-on badge.
- BONUS PARTS! Everyone loves bonuses so they include some parts that will get you through some of the tutorials on the Adafruit Learning System. These include:
