This was exactly my intended use case - as a gift for relatives - the problem I've had is that I need it enclosed to prevent tiny little fingers from getting hurt/destroying the thing. Tried soak testing it one night and experienced the same thing :/

Currently I'm hoping that I can modify the case this weekend to fulfill my needs.

As something intended to be used by kids to learn about computing I do wonder how many are going to get hurt fingers from the heat output by accidentally maxing the cpu and/or touching the USB ports, etc.

Sounds like one of the unexpected lessons will be heat dissipation :)

Probably outside of the realm of weekend hacking, but I wonder if something like this would work for you: https://flirc.tv/more/raspberry-pi-4-case

Best of luck!


Hadn't come across the case. I'll give it a go if my DIY attempts dont work (or are crap) :D
