Power Block Arcade PCB

This PCB simplifies the task of distributing power to the mini arcade's main components: LCD, amplifier, and Raspberry Pi (or other single board computer). This PCB is just a glorified hub with easy terminations for wire pairs and dc pigtails to make the task power wiring straight forward. This PCB can accept the common adjustable DC buck (step-down) converter for those who want to use a 12V DC input on their arcade. I've built enough mini arcades that I know wiring was still painful and confusing for beginners . Though not required, the Power Block PCB will make the task easier to manage and get things wired faster.

If you solder the appropriate resistors this PCB also functions as a high-current USB charger.

Works with all Pi's (Zero, 1, 2, 3, 3+).

Kit Type

All Full kits now include 2 (two) of these DC pigtail cables incase you decided to go with the arcade power block at a later time. If you have an older kit and need some extra DC pigtail cables, they are available.
