According to the web page for the Pibow Coupe,
Note: We’ve redesigned Pibow to be compatible
with both the Raspberry Pi 2 and B+. Due to changes in the layout of the
power circuitry on the Raspberry Pi 2 layer 3 has had to be revised -
older Pibows (one’s with a B+ label) will not work with Raspberry Pi 2!
Where would I find this “B+ label” on a red Pibow Coupe I just recently bought?
I bought the Pibow Coupe through a well-known US vendor within just the last two weeks, before the release of the Pi2. I now have a Pi2 on (back)order and wanted to put it into the Coupe, moving the B+ that’s in there now to a new Pibow Ninja (non-Coupe style), also on order. After reading the above piece (I wasn’t home at the time), I assumed the red Coupe I have is an “old” one since it had to be in the US vendor’s inventory for at least a few weeks, so as much as I didn’t want to, I ordered a new Coupe from the Pimoroni shop.
Now I’m not sure that the Coupe I already have really is an old one. How can I tell for certain when I don’t yet have the Pi2 to fit inside it? The single picture on the Coupe web page looks just like mine, and I don’t see any sort of B+ label. If I already have the new design, I need to cancel quickly the order I just placed today.
