The more of a hobbyist you are, the more safe you might want to keep your boards. Protecting them from dust and filth is essential. You don’t want to spend money on your boards just because you were too lazy to take care of them.
So you recently bought an Arduino board and now want a case for it? You have come to the right place for we have compiled for you a list of best cases for Arduino that you can store your Arduino in.
10. Arduino Mega Case Enclosure by SB Components ($12.25)
Designed specifically for Arduino Mega 2560. The case snaps around the Arduino board. It has small windows that provide access to all the ports of Arduino.
This case is worth the money. The case is made up of 2 pieces i.e The top of the case and the back plate. This way you can quickly gain access to the whole board. There are slits on the case which do not prevent debris from entering. Sturdy and secure with integrated ON/OFF switch.
9. Eleduino Arduino Mega 2560 Case Enclosure Box ($12.39)
Perfect for Arduino Mega 2560. The acrylic is cut using laser, hence a very neat finish. Includes feet rubber to prevent it from skidding and metal screws for fastening.
A little flaw is that there is no extension for the reset button.
8. SB Components Arduino Mega Case ($7.99)
The case specifically designed for Arduino Mega 2560. The case snaps around the Arduino and has an integrated switch for turning ON and OFF. It can’t be used with the shield because of no space!
You can leave the top on if you use extra-long headers so they slip through the slits and plug onto the board’s headers.
Recommended for self-contained Arduino projects.
7. GeauxRobot Arduino Mega Enclosure Case Box Clear ($10.99)
This case is compact and solidly built for Arduino Mega. The reset button resides outside hence it is easy to access. The case also has rubber feet so it does not slip. A guide to assembling it step by step is included. The acrylic comes with a peel-off plastic. The board does not screw itself with the case but suspends inside the case.
Overall a great buy.
6. Arduino Uno & Ethernet Shield Transparent Acrylic Case ($12.95)
Glossy and transparent shield for Arduino UNO and Ethernet Shield. This case comes unassembled in 6 pieces. Precisely machined and made using high-quality acrylic. The box assembles easily although there are no instructions.
“The front panel with the connector openings may be removed to get the boards in and out. The power jack may be slightly misaligned relative to the opening in the box, apparently due to variability in its position on the PCB.” – Amazon customer review
The case can be fragile too. But once together, it holds on nicely.
5. Uno Case Enclosure by SB Components ($8.99)
This case has been designed for UNO. Provides protection to your Arduino. Includes a reset key and has windows to access all the ports and pins of board. Might not be able to accommodate shields but you can cut away some plastic from bottom to accommodate them. Clear channels running down to LEDs so you can easily read from the surface of the case. Dimensions are good and holds the board really well.
4. Uno Case Enclosure by SB Components ($9.95)
This protective case is specifically designed for Arduino UNO. This case also snaps around the Arduino. Includes a reset key and windows to all ports/pins of Arduino are available. The clear case lets you see the entire board. Arduino fits in nice and snug but the case might not snap together very tightly. The lid stays on but can be removed easily. All inputs are easy to access. Provides protection against dust and dirt.
3. SunFounder Mega 2560 Case Enclosure ($12.99)
This is the SunFounder’s protective case for arduino 2560. This case has to be assembled too. It is mounted by 8 screws and provides excellent protection with elegant appearance.
“If you own an Arduino Mega, then you need this. This case is far superior to others out there and protects your arduino from accidental shorts and ESD from touching it. Spend the money, to protect your investment.” – Amazon customer review
2. GeauxRobot Arduino UNO Enclosure Case Clear ($11.79)
Compact and sturdy case for arduino UNO. Clear case so you can see the arduino in it. It also has a reset button and windows for ports. A guide on how to assemble is included in the package.
1. Arduino Uno Zebra Case ($12.25)
This case consists of rubber feet and mounting holes. The stainless steel screws set the acrylic plates in place. It built-inilt in reset button for UNO. Fits perfectly and really easy to put together. Covered by a transparent coating of ice (black ice).
Inexpensive and worth the money.
