Portable Raspberry Pi Tablet
In this project, we'll show you how to build a portable Raspberry Pi 2, using a 7" touchscreen display, an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000c and a 2500mAh battery. Our 3D printed enclosure fits all of the components making an all-in-one, compact Raspberry Pi tablet.

7" Multitouch Display
In this build, we're using the official 7” multitouch display from the Raspberry Pi foundation. It features a beautiful IPS display and includes the drivers to work on a Raspberry Pi 2.

The 3D printed enclosure gives you access to all of the ports. Instead of stacking all of the boards on top of each other, this design allow the components to be spread out, making a slim package.

Hello Ardafruit. Nice construction work. Small remark. Can the printed box fit to the display? Display is bigger then box. I care about corners of display, because they break off by strong manipulation with tablet.

Can this be scaled down to a 5" display? I plan on using it as part of my drone ground station in order to run QGroundControl. Thanks!

Would love to see a version that lets you attach to small loudspeakers.

I had this printed at Shapeways. The large bracket that holds all the boards together has 4 inner holes and 4 outer holes. The 4 outer holes do not line up exactly with the RasPi 7" touchscreen, but the inner 4 holes do line up with their equivalent on the screen. I have found that the charger board can be mounted on 4 M2.5 screws. Anything larger will hit up against the components on the board. The clearance between the pins on the video driver board and the RasPi is very small, take care to keep the USB port clear of the pins on the RasPi.

any reason you can think of this setup would not be compatible with an octoprint setup? Seems like a great solution. Thanks for sharing.

Would it be possible to make a version of this with the power switch on the other side? That way at least one surface is flat and you can rest this on edge.

I love it, can't wait to build it!!

How much space is there for the battery?

Is there enough space to put a larger battery?
(Specifically this battery) http://www.adafruit.com/products/353

Thank you,

I'm building this right now. I'm using the stock battery but I'll let you know how much space is left after I put it in there. :)

Awesome, Jaeg! Thank you!

Hi, i printed the case but it seems a bit "smaller".
Do i need to change the size? i am using a flashforge pro printer.


Would this work if you wanted to just mount the Raspberry Pi 2 and the display mount as they were intended, stacked ? I don't want to use a battery.

Yes, but you won't have easy access to the ports and you will need to modify the frame design to be a bit taller here: http://a360.co/1kmzwHv


Does this configuration work well when using an external keyboard or other USB add-ons? I'm asking because all the docs I've seen say this sort of setup should have a 2A power supply. Or does the PowerBoost provide more than 1A somehow?

the PowerBoost 1000c outputs ~2.5A from a 3.7V LiPoly/LiIon battery. You can read the full description on: https://www.adafruit.com/products/2465

We use a wireless keyboard with a WiFi adapter without any problems.


Huh, guess I didn't read the product description properly. Thanks!
