    If you can send Adre at Allo your name, address and email you should then be able to receive a code enabling you to lace your own independent order at discount.

    I will ask the same of those interested on the Audio Standard site . . .
    Right, I'm back in!

    My case arrived today. Looks fantastic and has a nice weight to it. However there is a big design flaw in my opinion - the power inlet is too close to the leg. The original Pi power supply just about fits but even that is a squeeze. For anyone with an adapter like mine, it won't fit. I had to file it down (the adapter) and while it now fits, it's still at a slight angle. I know there are some different types of adapters (some are tiny cables) so maybe those fit fine.

    "Big design flaw" is somewhat over the top. I must admit I was dubious about clearance when I saw the space available but I've used 3 different cables and all fit, albeit snugly. The problem is that you're using a fat adapter. When I use an adapter I use use one with a short cable between the microUSB and DC socket. I wouldn't want to use a solid adapter as it applies too much leverage to the delicate microUSB socket. However with yours now wedged I suppose that fixes the leverage issue.

    Hi Simon,

    Nothing special - something like these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/4-PACK-5-5x.../dp/B01AFHFC2S

    I just used what I had to hand. I can't be sure the plugs will fit and I don't know the size of your DC plug but there's loads to choose from. Even if you needed to file down one side of one of these plugs it would be less of an issue than filling down a solid adapter.

    Thanks, have seen those before but had decided to go with the adapter instead of adapter built into a cable.

    hi guys,

    due to the RPI forma factor and the way the peripheral connectors are laid out, space for the micro USB is not ample... but more than enough.

    we have a tested with many micro USB connectors and majority fit well, only the older thick ones dont...
    we even have a DC to microUSB adapter available.
    https://allo.com/sparky/dc-microusb-adapter-cable.html

    this will adapter cable is included with all cases purchased starting June 25th

    if someone really needs one, i will ship some to our distributor in the UK (ModmyPi) and they can get one very cheap.

    regards and thanks for the feedback!
