Connect your Raspberry Pi to the power outlet thanks to NODE

One of the weak points of the Raspberry Pi is lto power supply and its connection, something difficult for certain users accustomed to the on / off button. On the other hand, its strong point is undoubtedly its size, its small and manageable size.

These points can be joined and created something unique like the NODE website has done, which has created a Raspberry Pi accessory that solves the problem of Raspberry Pi cables and connections.

In this case the solution is easy. First, a Pi Zero board was taken, the smallest of all, although with a Raspberry Pi, if we are handymen, it will also work. This board has joined a hub, to which it is connected and all of this has been glued to a power connector. In this way, by connecting the plug, the same Raspberry Pi board receives current and does not need any extra cables or connections.

In addition, thanks to the usb keys that we can connect without any problem, thanks to the hub, the Pi Zero can be used as if it were a minipc or a smart TV because the space it occupies is minimal. In addition, by using components accessible to everyone, this curious hack for Raspberry Pi can be built ourselves without having to wait for the web to raise money or have to reach our country.

With Raspberry Pi you can do the same, we just have to connect the board to the outlet, it may seem expensive, but elements like Lego pieces and a little glue can work very well in these cases.

In addition, if you are novice users, this design will solve the Raspberry Pi handling problems because when the current passes through the hub, it has an on and off button that can replace the power button on the sbc board. The truth is that this design, although simple and basic, is very useful Do not you think?
