I was wondering to buy aluminium case for limesdr-mini. Will aluminum cases be sold? Where else can I buy them?
Doing a search on EBay, there are a number of cases for the LimeSDR and Lime Mini:

I already searched on ebay and aliexpress, but there are no aluminum cases for limesdr mini
The aluminium case as seen on Crowd Supply is not sold separately.
There are general-purpose aluminum enclosures available in many shops. Just chose the one where LimeSDR Mini will fit and drill a few holes. As a workaround you can also use a plastic or 3D-printed case and shield it from inside using either aluminum adhesive tape or conductive varnish, e.g. containing copper. However if your SDR heats a lot this can be a problem. Finally, you can solder a case using regular FR4 boards or make an enclosure using aluminum sheets.
On your crowd supply page you mention compatibility with the v1.1 and v1.2 LimeSDR-Mini. Is it known if this case is compatible with the v1.3? I just purchased a LimeSDR-Mini a couple weeks ago and when it arrived it is labeled as a v1.3 on the board.
Hello, given that a mini will draw ~0.3A when IDLE and can go as high as 0.45A, how confident are you that the fan power consumtion wont get in the way of the mini?
