UPDATE: July 5th 2017 Added version with a port hole for USB cables – Allows you to power the CircuitPlayground without a battery!

This is an enclosure designed specifically for the Adafruit Circuit Playground. The Circuit Playground board is secured to the enclosure using 4x M3 (5mm long) machine screws.
