RasPad | Word's First Tablet That Make You Use Raspberry Pi Very Easy
$313,431 Raised From Crowdfunding
Raspberry Pi is a great invention. But if you’re new to it, it’s confusing to know where to start, what accessories you’ll need, or how to set it up.
So we created the RasPad, a portable Raspberry Pi tablet. It gives you access to all the Raspberry Pi ports to create customized projects.
#1 Choice For Makers
Build Projects Better And Faster
RasPad is created for and by Makers. This is why we understand the wants and needs of a maker like no other:
- Compatible with the new Raspberry Pi 3B+
- Equipped with Visual Programming Software
-Compatible with Arduino, Raspbian, Ubuntu Mate, Chromium OS, Android and more...
LEARN. BUILD. CREATE.
Focus On What Matters
RasPad is designed to remove barriers, so you can directly start building your makers project. It’s a simple tablet that gives you access to all the Raspberry Pi ports you need, along with a simple tablet interface so you can start programming from anywhere.

RasPad 3 FAQ
Q: Can the battery be replaced?
A: Considering that this involves design issues and requirements for battery volume, it is not recommended to replace the battery.
Q:Can you consider changing the power charging interface to Type-C?
A: We will consider this suggestion.
Q:What is the power of adapter?
A: It is 30W.
Q:What are the specifications of adapter interface?
A: The specification of the adapter interface is 5.5 mm x 2.5mm, with DC 15V.
Q:Would it be possible to release the case as STL files so it can be modded by the community?
A: Sorry, the STL files are not public.
Q: Is the battery a standard 18650 cluster that one might be able to add additional cells in parallel "unofficially" of course?
A: It uses a standard 18650 battery pack. If you want to make a parallel battery pack, you need to make a battery protection board to protect the battery.
Q: Can the RasPad be used as a monitor for the Jetson Nano for AI?
A: Not support, RasPad3 does not support external devices.
Q:Limited access to the GPIO and Camera
A: We reserved all the GPIO slot on raspberry pi for users, to keep the possibility for RasPad. And you will just need to prepare a GPIO break out board for the expansion. For the breakout cables, the usual 40-pin rainbow cable will be fine. Since we consider the camera as an extension, it is currently not support to fix the camera on the Raspad.
Q:Ethernet does not work
A: Normally, this situation should rarely occur, as we have tested several of our existing sample machines, and each of their Ethernet port seems work well, and also will not cause the Raspberry Pi WIFI to be turned off. Meanwhile, we have recorded this feedback and will inspect it carefully in the final production stage to ensure that the Ethernet port will not become a problem factor that hinders the use of raspad.
Q:Fan is incredibly noisy
A: In the recent A/B tests, we appropriately lower the fan speed (to reduce noise) while ensuring the cooling performance of the fan. With the indoor-temperature is 25℃, and the CPU is 100% occupied, the temperature is 68℃ when the fan is almost silent status, and 65℃ when the fan is running at full speed.
Q:External display disable touchscreen
A: For the touch screen, as the touch driver Raspberry Pi OS provided treated the dual display as one long display. So half of the touch sensor will control the RasPad, and other half control the others. Makes it not possible to use. But we will try to find a better solution.
Q:Battery life is less than quoted
A: 5h battery life is tested under standby. Which it only turns on, and stays there. It’s almost not possible to boost video playback time to 5h as battery pack is already 3000mAh, 33wh, it will cost too much.
