DIY edition

Previously sold as an educational tool, with a Raspberry Pi 4 inside and a Foundation kit of electronics, similarly it’s now sold separately in this
DIY edition. It has considerable heft to withstand the rigours of the classroom. We measured the base unit at 100×130×35 mm, and weighed it in at 397 g. The GPIO sockets (with BCM numbering) break out to the top of the case alongside a small 120×64 OLED display and four control buttons, a built-in battery, and a speaker.

Battery and screen

It’s the only case we’ve seen that contains a built-in battery and display. Making pi-top [4] good for mobile use and also acts as power redundancy. It takes around an hour to charge and lasts for around five hours of use.

The small 128×64 OLED displays information on the battery level, CPU load, and network connection. We were glad to discover an OLED and
Button API in the documentation. The ‘ptoled’ module enables you to draw text, images and GIFs to the display, and plot and draw shapes.

Built-in cooling

pi-top [4] includes a fan that automatically adjusts its speed according to the CPU temperature. This was tested with Stressberry and found that pi-top [4] idled at 35°C, maxing out under stress at 45°C (with an ambient temperature of 14°C).
