Product details

MI:pro Protector Case for the BBC micro:bit

• Protect your BBC micro:bit (not included) with this clear case
• Cut-outs give you access to all your buttons and input/output connections
• Some assembly required

What can I do with this case?
Protect your board while you use it. You can see the LED matrix display with the clear plastic case, and the cut-outs give your access to plug in your micro USB cable and use both A, B and reset buttons. The bottom pins are all accessible, so nothing will stop you from experimenting and inventing.

How do I use the mountable case?
The protector case requires some assembly and comes with the parts, screws and nuts that you need to put it together with a simple Philips screwdriver (not included). Connect the protector case to boards, components and projects. The case even comes with an extra screw to connect a two AAA battery holder (not included) for use as a power supply.

Specification
Assembly required Yes (no soldering required)
Dimensions 27 mm x 37 mm x 67 mm
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but flawed I bought this with the Microbit to protect it whilst being used. My 9 year old came to me and told me that after building it, it wasn't compatible with the BBC Microbit battery holder. Initially I doubted this but checked it out and my Son was correct, it isn't. The supplied battery holder with the Microbit doesn't have a pre drilled hole in the case to accept the self tapping screw which secures it to the Mi Pro case. To sort this problem out you need to cut out a small piece of the central dividing plastic 'wall' between the two AA's and then drill a small hole in the base of the battery holder. Its a workaround but the Mi:Pro people and Microbit people should have chatted about this before putting them on the market.
