Nibbler Plus – Tiny Meshtastic Powered Portable Node


Out of stock

Say hello to Nibbler Plus, the tiny HeltecV3 powered “pocket” Meshtastic powered node with an SMA connector for maximum signal strength.

Coming Soon!

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Video about Nibbler and how to assemble one HERE.

Nibbler Plus is designed to be a companion to Bender (this is a Mesh network after all!) with the design goals being maximum portability, practicality, antenna flexibility and all day battery life.

Nibbler Plus has the same footprint as Nibbler Pocket but features and SMA connector for using the antenna of your choice. The base Nibbler Plus configuration includes a flat back for easy pocket-ability and measures just 77x46x26mm. If you want to attach it “walkie” style there is an optional belt clip available (The clip is super strong)

For extra security Nibbler also has a strong lanyard slot which will accept a loop, a simple black lanyard with quick connector is available as an option.

Something this small must have rubbish battery life though right? Nope, Nibbler uses a 2000mah flat LIPO cell that can provide over 20 hours of battery life! Your phone battery will die before Nibbler! Using this battery is only possible due the custom cable we include with each case (we’ve had it manufactured in bulk, no soldering on this one thank god!)

Nibbler has a construction designed to be tough, portable things get dropped after all. The key to this is the “Niblet” on the end of the body which attaches with two included M3 Hex bolts. These bolts screw into captive stainless steel square nuts inside the body and secure the front face and rear battery cover and option clip (Allen key included!). Nibbler will not come apart unless these two hex bolts are removed, accidental disassembly is pretty impossible! I will be publishing a free STEP file so you can design your own Niblets too… N-Type connector anyone?

To summarise the features:

  • Body measuring just 77x46x26mm
  • Support for a EEMB LP103454 2000mah flat LIPO with PCM chip providing 20hr+ battery life
  • Included custom made battery cable allowing use of batteries with JST PH2.0 connector
  • Strong Lanyard loop slot with optional Lanyard available
  • Optional Belt Clip
  • Access to USB-C connector for charging
  • High quality tough PLA+ bioplastic
  • Stainless steel Hex bolts and nuts included plus Allen key!

Just like Bender, Nibbler is clean and simple externally but features a precision design with a complex internal structure that has taken countless prototypes to perfect. I love Bender but I love Nibbler more and am sure you will too!

You simply need to add a HeltecV3 and a battery to make complete portable Meshtastic node.

What is PLA Bioplastic?

All our models are printed in a Bioplastic material called PLA (Polylactic acid) that is made from renewable, organic sources such as corn starch or sugar cane. It’s classed as 100% biodegradable but is still quite tough and has a melting point of over 170C. It won’t deform unless heated to over 70C, but still best not leave a model in the sun for too long!

Nibbler Plus includes

  • The Bender Case, 3D printed
  • 1 x SMA-F Pigtail
  • 1 x Battery Adapter cable
  • 2 x M3 12mm Stainless steel Hex Bolts
  • 2 x M3 Flat Square Stainless Steel Nuts
  • 1 x 2.5mm Allen Key
  • 1x Black Quick Release Lanyard

All 3D prints have a texture due to the nature of how they are created, being printed layer by layer. zerofox3D print using 0.4mm nozzles which allow great detail with a fine texture.
