Once upon a time, there was a Raspberry Pi which wanted a shorter card. Luckily, pi3g came to the rescue.

Today, we are very proud to introduce our newest product:

pi.card – half the size, double the fun


Size & Compatibility

pi.card is halt the height of your usual SDHC card, a perfect fit for the Raspberry Pi’s SD slot. It is fully compatible with all available Raspberry Pi models and cases, as it simply takes less space.

Initially it will be available as 16 GB Class 6 card, but we plan on introducing additional sizes and options, soon.

Of course, pi.card is compatible with all operating systems, which support standard SDHC cards.


Pre-Installed System

pi.card ships with NOOBS & Raspbian (already selected and pre-installed for your convenience) – you can plug it in and start your Raspberry Pi immediately!


Perfect fit for TEK-BERRY cases

pi.card has been designed with the beautiful TEK-BERRY cases (and of course their owners!) in mind. As we use TEK-BERRY cases for nearly all our products, pi.card is of course also a good addition to your pi3g Raspberry Pi!



Comes with it’s own reader

pi.card comes with it’s very own SD reader, so you can easily re-install / modify / backup pi.card’s contents.


We do not recommend to insert pi.card into normal SDHC readers, as you may not be able to retrieve pi.card easily once you are finished with your reading / writing task. It simply is a mechanical problem – normal readers were not designed with pi.card’s form factor in mind!

Available now

Update: pi.card is now available in a limited quantity in our shop: buy pi.card from pi3g. It costs 25 € (including VAT) for the initial 16 GB version with the special SD reader, excluding shipping. Shop is in German only right now – working on that.

Shipping is free for orders over 100 € to Germany in our pi3g shop, and we have lowered rates for international shipping!

Secure one of the very first pi.card’s!

We are looking into the next generation of Raspberry Pi equipment. And we see micro SD cards!

We’ve tried the Adafruit and the pIO adapter. The pIO is a better solution in our view for fixed installations of Raspberry Pis – the card is mounted sideways and can’t be removed that easily. Plus, the machining on the case looks nicer.

Here are some first photos:


This case has a transparent bottom, so you can see the machining for the pIO adapter.

Right now, it is a bit too small to fit the microSD card perfectly ( I believe this case actually was machined for the Adafruit adapter originally). We will work with our partner TEKO to ensure a perfect fit, of course!


As you can see, the µSD card can’t be retrieved from the case without actually opening it. Nothing sticks out!

TEKO is looking into providing some rubber plugs for the opening (a new mould for the case is possible, but expensive).


This is another view of the SD card slot.
