Raspberry PiZero Soldering Service

The PiZero is a fantastic low-priced device but new users just need a helping hand to get started setting one up.

I like helping people but my wife objects when it costs her money so this is my solution.

You purchase a PiZero and post it to me (or have it delivered direct to me if PiHiut/Pimoroni will do that for you)

Include an extra £5 or so and then I’ll

  • Solder on a full-sized socket underneath the PiZero so you can plug in a standard WiFi dongle without it sticking out
  • Solder on a connector for the GPIO pins so you can plug in standard Pi Add-on boards
    (Any type of header can be specified – standard, socket instead of pins, right angle, extended header etc)
  • Setup a microSD card so you can plug your PiZero via USB into a computer so you can program and use it with without an extra keyboard/mouse/screen
  • Additional extras:  Simple 3D printed case

Pricing depends upon options selected -I can source the connectors/SD card or you can send them to me with PiZero.

Examples (rough at moment):

  • Just add standard GPIO pins – £2
  • Full package – Extended header + USB socket for WiFi dongle + WiFi dongle + SD card supplied and setup + case – £15

Return postage/packaging options are entirely your choice at cost + 20p shoe leather 🙂
