If you love your Pi, then you want to keep it safe from damage and external forces (and those pesky Pi thieves of course) then you can’t afford not to have a beautiful Raspberry Pi Original Case, with a sleek Black finish to score you some extra style-points when showing off your complex projects. This is why we have ensured that we always have stock of both the Raspberry Pi Original Black Case as well as the Raspberry Pi Original White Case, so you can keep your Pi protected and safe from unexpected and unnecessary harm – and looking good while doing so!

This Pi enclosure is designed to perfectly accommodate all of the ports and features on Raspberry Pi Boards in the Model B range, including the Ethernet, power, HDMI and USB ports, so that it never hinders the functionality of your Pi projects, with a clever design that keeps the Pi firmly mounted in the centre and safe from basic shock damage even if the enclosure is dropped from a reasonable height. We don’t suggest you test this though, as falls can indeed scratch the surface of the enclosure, which would counteract the impeccable design that just looks so damn good!

Please Note: This is a Raspberry Pi Original product, designed and manufactured to be perfectly compatible with Raspberry Pi Single Board Computers.

Typical Applications for the Black Raspberry Pi 3B+ Original Case:

Although there aren’t a lot of unique ways to utilise this Black Raspberry Pi Original Case aside from its typical use, some Makers do enjoy personalising their cases to appear more retro-styled. As such, home projects involving this case include:

  • Turning a Raspberry Pi into an old NES game console that can play downloaded ROMs and use WiFi remote controls – A little bit of retro with a modern touch.
  • Using the Case as the basis for the head of a robot, in which the Pi would be the brain.
  • Building a basic computer system for your car, with a Raspberry Pi powering your touch screen display and controlling your audio or other media.

The Raspberry Pi Original Case is perfect the way it is, but that certainly doesn’t mean that you, as a Maker, shouldn’t make it even better. So, whether you want to keep the classic look or step it up by adding your own custom flavour to the case, this model is a great starting point as it snugly and tightly fits the Pi 3 Model B and keeps it safe from shock, environmental and direct contact damage.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a case that focuses on funky fun rather than the professional appeal, be sure to take a look at our Raspberry Pi Rainbow Case as well, which is ultra-easy to assemble and adds some exciting colours to almost any Pi project.

The primary aim of The Raspberry Pi Foundation is to enable people from all walks of life to understand, learn and develop our digital world with ideas that actually matter to them. Their single-board computers are designed with an open-source style, while being both easy to use and versatile. This allows people to build their own systems to cater to unique problems within their environment, while allowing them to share with and learn from others who are building similar types of systems – growing and developing the open-source movement in every step of the way.


The Raspberry Pi Foundation also takes their initiative a step further by building accessories like cameras, control interfaces and other products that can be seamlessly integrated into projects, made with high quality components but without the unnecessary frills that many brands choose to add on for “extra value”. This “no frills” approach makes their products more affordable while catering to consumers throughout the world, regardless of their financial condition. In doing so, people in almost any situation can use these products to improve their lives, better the world around them, and help develop both their local communities, as well as online communities of Makers.


Finally, like the cherry (or perhaps raspberry) on top of an already-great Sundae, The Raspberry Pi Foundation utilises the profits that they make to sponsor and host outreach and education efforts, with the intent to help people by making computing and digital development more accessible. They train educators and offer free resources online for people to learn from, giving consumers the power to change the world around them, and ultimately do their small part in developing the ever-expanding digital world too.
