Do I need a powered hub ?

The BCU we recommend is a Raspberry Pi 3B. Like all Raspberry Pi models it consumes little power (about half an amp) but therefore has little to offer to peripherals. If you Google, you will find plenty of evidence that over-loading a poor little Pi can cause corruption to the SD card and, if you're...

However, we have decided to reinstate the "pre-prepared micro SD cards" - guaranteed to boot and sent by First Class post/Airmail - but stil...

The Skipper's Mate system is based around the Raspberry Pi and the hardware is specific to that. For that reason, if you purchase a kit from us we will have tested the makes and models to ensure that the equipment works with the Pi. And for that reason, we supply ALL the hardware for a given kit to ...
