  1. Hi I don’t what to sound trite,but how come the board does not suffer from static when handling with your bare hands,like for example when plugged into a mains powered usb hub?

    • Hi Fay,

      In some case the Pi is indeed at risk from static build up but most of the really sensitive components are pretty well tucked away in the middle of the board. With careful handling (by the edges) the risk is minimised but most people encase their Pi in a plastic base to further reduce the chances of zapping something important.

      TBH the board itself is pretty robust and I’ve had no issues handling mine without cases (to date)
