Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking to add network cable connectivity to the tiny Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC may be interested in the Raspberry Pi Zero power over Ethernet (PoE) USB Hub HAT available from online retailers such as the Pi Hut store and more priced at $25 or £22 (depending on your location). Specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero the HAT and 802.3af-compliant power sourcing equipment, you can power your Raspberry Pi Zero (and provide a 10/100 internet connection) via a single RJ-45 cable.
As well as offering extra connectivity via three extended USB ports, offering compatibility with USB 2.0 and 1.1 standards. Unlike traditional HATs/pHATs for the Pi Zero, this board fits to the underside of the Zero using ‘pogo’ pins to make connections, leaving your GPIO pins free for attaching other HATs and hardware.
