Do you have a Raspberry Pi 4 laying around or got one as a gift and would like to use it? This is the kit for you. Everything you would find in the regular kits but without a Raspberry Pi 4. Bring your own Pi 4!
The Raspberry Pi 4 Basic Kit includes everything you'll need to get up and running with the Raspberry Pi 4. The Pi 4 moves to a MicroHDMI Connector for monitors and a USB Type C connector for powering the board. Inside the kit you will find a MicroHDMI to HDMI cable and USB Type C Wall Adapter; two things needed to run the Pi, but that you probably didn't have sitting around already. The wall adapter provides 15.3W of power, enough to properly power the Pi and most projects.
From our previous kits, we've bumped the MicroSD card capacity up to 64GB as the Pi 4 is able to support more memory hungry projects. The card comes blank with no distribution allowing you to choose from a multitude of operating systems or projects that are built specifically for the Pi. The SD card adapter bundled with the MicroSD card makes it simple to upload the operating system of your choice using the SD card reader in most modern PCs and Laptops.
We've also thrown in our Qwiic Shim for Raspberry Pi, the quickest way to use I2C devices with the Raspberry Pi. If you're familiar with the Raspberry Pi environment and are looking to upgrade to the Pi 4, this is the kit for you! We recommend also picking up one of the Heat Sink Cases in the Hookup Accessories section below should your project be especially power hungry, such as running multiple displays at once.
Note: This variation of the Raspberry Pi 4 Basic Kit does not include a Raspberry Pi in any form. This will need to be purchased separately.
