The NASPi-Lite kit does not include the Raspberry Pi 4 motherboard, TF card, 2.5" SATA SSD/HDD and power adapter.
What's the difference between NASPi and NASPi Lite?
1. NASPi-Lite use normal 5V cooling fan, fan speed is not adjustable; NASPi use 5V PWM cooling fan, fan speed is adjustable.
2. NASPi-Lite use X-C2 adpater board with one full size HDMI port, not support software shutdown; NASPi use X-C1 adpater board with software shutdown function.
NASPi Lite is a simplified version of NASPi, which replace the NASPi X-C1 adapter board with X-C2 adapter board. The X-C2 adapter board has one full size HDMI for easy application, also remove the software shutdown function from X-C2.
NASPi Lite is a NUC-style 2.5" sata case for Raspberry Pi 4 model b 8gb/4gb/2gb. It supports 2.5-inch sata HDD/SSD. The shell is made of all aluminum alloy, CNC processing method, surface anodizing treatment.
NASPI-Lite adopts modular design, and NASPI is composed of three parts: X823 V1.5 storage shield, X-C2 adapter board, heat dissipation system(include X823-A3 metal fan bracket and 4010 2Pin cooling fan), and they will be packed into a ALU-case to get a complete NASPi Lite;
X823 provides 2.5 inch HDD/SSD storage function(UASP supported);
X-C2 provides power management and interface adapter function but not support software shutdown.
For the heat dissipation system, we chose a relatively simple and practical heat dissipation solution: a custom metal bracket and a 4010 2Pin cooling fan to achieve it.

How to Power NASPi-Lite
Power supply: 5Vdc +/-5% , ≥3A (Via Type-C Port)
Recommend to use Geekworm 5V 4A Type-C power adapter(ASIN: B09J856PND).
About NASPi stress test, refer to: wiki.geekworm.com/Naspi_stress_test
The 4 CPU cores are running at full load, the maximum temperature of the CPU core does not exceed 75 degrees, and the surface of the shell does not generate heat, which meets the design requirements.

Q1. Will the Alu case affect the WIFI?
A: As our test, 2.4G WIFI AP was usable. But different Raspberry Pi individuals have different degrees of WIFI interference. As well as aluminum alloy case will interfere with pi 4’s WIFI to a certain extent. 2.4G WIFI maybe unstable. So it is strongly recommend to use Ethernet or 5G AP. Refer to 5G WiFi test video: youtu.be/LKJVIBQFYXs
Q2: What is the thickness of a 2.5" HDD/SSD that can be accommodated?
A: The thickness of 2.5" HDD/SSD on the market is generally 7mm, 9.5mm, 12.5 and 15mm，You only can choose 7mm or 9.5mm thickness HDD/SSD, NASPi is not compatible with 12.5mm and 15mm thickness 2.5" HDD/SSD.The thickness of 2.5" HDD/SSD should not exceed 9.8mm. In fact, most 2.5" HDD/SSD on the market are only 7mm thick.
Q3: Is it OK to use wirless keyboard or mouse?
A: According to our test, it is OK to use the keyboard and mouse. Refer to video: youtu.be/LKJVIBQFYXs, we use the wireless logitech K520 keyboard and mouse.
Q4: How to find and use the Raspberry Pi 4 5G AP?
