Short Case Assembly


The PiJuice Short Case is the prefect enclosure for the PiJuice HAT and the Raspberry Pi. It has been designed so that it can still allow access to the various buttons and LEDs. Via a series of knockouts it also allows for several types of cables to provide additional connectivity. The sliding top provides easy access to the GPIO header of the Raspberry Pi.

Step 1 – Remove the top off the case.

Step 2 – Within the case you will find a plastic bag containing 4 rubber feet.

Step 3 – Remove the side panels.

Step 4 – Place the side panel with the Ethernet and USB openings on the Raspberry Pi.

Step 5 – Slide the Raspberry Pi with the side panel in the case. The side panel will have to slide in the guides of the case. As you push in the Raspberry Pi make sure you gently open the two sides of the case to allow for the various connectors to get into place.

Step 6 – Slide the other panel in and make sure that the PCBs are slot in the groves of the case.

Step 7 – Finally slide the top back in place.

At this point the PiJuice is ready to be used.

You can now move to the software installation section.

Tall Case Assembly

The PiJuice Tall Case is the prefect enclosure for the PiJuice HAT and the Raspberry Pi. It has been designed so that it can still allow access to the various buttons and LEDs. Via a series of knockouts it also allows for several types of cables to provide additional connectivity. The sliding top provides easy access to the GPIO header of the Raspberry Pi or to an additional card stacked on top of PiJuice.

The PiJuice Tall case can for example easily accommodate the Pi PoE.

Step 1 – Remove the top off the case.
Step 2 – Within the case you will find a plastic bag containing 4 rubber feet.


Step 3 – Remove the side panels.
Step 4 – Place the side panel with the Ethernet and USB openings on the Raspberry Pi.
Step 5 – Slide the Raspberry Pi with the side panel in the case. The side panel will have to slide in the guides of the case. As you push in the Raspberry Pi make sure you gently open the two sides of the case to allow for the various connectors to get into place.

Step 6 – Slide the other panel in and make sure that the PCBs are slot in the groves of the case.

Step 7 – Finally slide the top back in place.

At this point the PiJuice is ready to be used.

You can now move to the software installation section.

Pi Zero Case Assembly

The PiJuice Pi Zero Case is the prefect enclosure for the PiJuice HAT and the Raspberry Pi Zero. It has been designed so that it can still allow access to the various buttons and LEDs. Via a series of knockouts it also allows for several types of cables to provide additional connectivity. The sliding top provides easy access to the GPIO header of the Raspberry Pi.

Step 1 – Remove the top off the case.

Step 2 – Within the case you will find a plastic bag containing 4 rubber feet.

Step 3 – Remove the side panels.

Step 4 – Place the PiJuice HAT on top of the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Step 5 – Insert the PiJuice and Pi Zero into the case, making sure it slots in to the grooves either side and the PiJuice micro USB slot should face the cut outs.

Step 6 – Slide in the two ends of the case making sure that the cut outs align with the PiJuice LEDs and switches and also with the micro USB slot on the Raspberry Pi Zero.

Step 7 – Slide the top of the case on.

At this point the PiJuice is ready to be used.

You can now move to the software installation section.
