Tired of ripping the power cord out of your precious Pi just to switch its power off or reset it? This handy little guy is a standard microUSB cable with an inline switch which allows you to toggle the device ON or OFF without the need to unplug. Simply wonderful!

  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

    Useful for single board computers and microcontroller that are missing a power switch. It would be better if the inline switch had an on-off indicator though because unless you have an indicator light on your board, there is no way to tell. (Posted on 22/11/2017)

    easier to use a power button than unplugging the usb cable all the time. Make sure you 'sudo shutdown' your Pi before turning it off. (Posted on 16/06/2017)

    Pi Zero has no power lights on it when it is idling so handy to be able to turn power off immediately when you power down, otherwise you could accidentally remove card or adapters while she is still powered up - Bad. (Posted on 14/06/2017)

    It took me 3 years of using Raspberry Pi's before I got one of these and I'll never go back. Way more useful than I thought. Would be nice if it was more obvious when the button was in the on position but for the price these are great. (Posted on 27/05/2017)

    A really handy cable for use with the Raspberry Pi boards. More convenient than switching power off at the wall and feels better than simply pulling the plug out of the board. (Posted on 11/05/2017)
